1979 Team Mongoose

Built bike around nos ACS stoker wheels. Never saw a set of Stoker mags growing up but when I saw an old ACS advertisement with a set on a PK Ripper the build was on...

-79 Team frame (many hours at buffing wheel)

-79 & 80 ACS Stoker mags (nos)
-Schwinn diamond cranks & sprocket
-Union rattrap pedals
-Mongoose bars (stripped and painted at home)
-79 Tange forks (stripped and painted at home)
-Bianchi suede seat(was green, bleached then dyed blue)
-Tange AW-27 headset 
-Home made medallions to fill reflector holes in wheels
-AME grips
-Ashtabula stem
-KMC chain
-Repop Snakebelly tires
-Repop clamp and seat tube
-Bike was built the way the way dad would have done it for me growing up. Clean build with a few nice parts and common but strong components making up the difference...
