1976 Mongoose Motomag

1976 Mongoose Motomag

My motomag - SN - CF6 20166

I've had it since I was a kid.  It has a redline MX-II front-end (v-bars, forks and stem).  It's been sitting (or hanging) in the garage for almost 30 years now.  even the tires are original.  The only thing I ever replaced were the grips.
I thought about restoring it for my oldest son, but I was afraid that someone who knew it's value would jack him while riding around the neighborhood.
so now I think I'll clean it up and keep it for a conversation piece.  The good old days.

Re: 1976 Mongoose Motomag

Thats what I had when I was a kid. A good step up from a stingray. Those were the days. I remember cutting the webs out of the moto mags with a hack saw, because they were to heavy. The photo of me with my 76 goose was right after I got rid of the mags and replaced them with the new style of aluminum rims that had a freewheel. The frame had no rear brake hanger except the coaster brake tab. So my grandfather welded one to the frame for me. It is way cool unrestored. I'm a buyer if you want to sell it. Just let me know. I would like to weld a brake bridge on it. -CadillacCowboy


Glad to be a part of this community. Thanks Gary and staff for all your time and maintenance.
