1981 Team Mongoose

Original Survivor.

This is the bike that got me seriously into BMX after modifying Huffys for many years before.  In 1981 I got a Motomag frame and built it up over a year with whatever cash I could scrape together.  The Team shown here is much much better!
I found this example complete from what I understand to be an estate sale in 2014.  Frame SN H1XXXXX.  August of 1981.  US Made.  It had not seen much use at all.  Even tires still intact.  I put it in storage back then and only took it out in 2023 to dust it off and wipe it down a bit.
The bike is all original Mongoose to my knowledge.  I only replaced the tubes with new in 2023.
