1988 Mongoose Expert

Pretty much OG to the bone thrift store find.

1988 Mongoose Expert in black with original paint and decals and all components except the seat and front tire which is a period correct Viscount Trick Top and a Comp III style skin wall with Ross Bicycles Branding. This bikes has had a complete overhaul with new grease on bearings and all parts cleaned and polished. This rig was a carpet queen and barely needed its nose wiped since it was stored in a climate controlled environment for the whole of its life. A pretty amazing survivor. Here is the run down on the bike:
