1981 Team Mongoose

All-chromoly Team Mongoose

I originally built this as a 'little brother' to my 1980 Moosegoose - same cranks, post clamp, tires, black tuffs, etc.  But with a coaster brake.  

But my younger son complained about the coaster and didn't want it to look exactly like his brother's bike, so I listened... and upgraded him to blue ano Sumos with Suzue hubs, Maxy Cross cranks, and a DC MX brake.  The Team 'goose probably deserved the spoke wheels and hand brake anyway.  It rides super smooth and he loves it - that's what matters!
