1976 Mongoose Motomag

1976 Old School Mongoose with Rare Gusset.

This is an almost complete 1976 Mongoose.  The serial # is CF6 on the top line and 20758 on the bottom.  From doing my research it is a California (C), June (F), 1976 (6) model.  I'm not sure about the rims but there are no markings indicating the manufacturer on them but I think they are original tuff's.  Any more information you have on this bike would be greatly appreciated.

Put it back together and leave it in its current state unearthed archealogical style, or like the truck in Duel.

Re: 1976 Mongoose Motomag

So what happened to this? did it get restored, left "as is" or sold an parted out?


I'm looking for the following frames, frame & forks or completes by BMX products:
MotoTrac (nickle or chrome), Racer-X or a Super-X (with the double gussets).
Thanks wink
I'm also johnng23604 at "Retro-goose", "VintageBMX" & "RADbmx"
