BMX Bandits Goose's Replica

After watching the film for the first time in years I thought about the Diamond Back Silver Streak I had for short time as few year before. I watched the start of the film again a few weeks later, and kept watching the start, those bikes look so cool in sunshine reflecting on all the chrome, so I had this thought

Could I get all the parts together to build the Goose's Mongoose and PJ's Diamond Back?

And these are the Results:

Yes..... you can, 6 months later and lots of money they are complete :0)

There are a few bikes used in the film, and whilst trying to find the make of V-Bars used, found another member on here that has one of the original bikes from the BMX Bandits, how cool is that, and he's done a great job restoring it ;0)

I bought some original parts from this member Thomy96, as he needed funds for new parts, some are not original but I was please with the parts that I think are, one being the seat which is now sitting proudly on my replica bike, thank you Thomy, hope you are well :0)

I have used many NOS parts on this built, Win V-Bars, Shimano Brake sets, Tange Seat Clamp, Grips, spider, chain ring, pad set.

Hardest part to find: Skyway Tuff II Alloy Hubb in Blue

I also started collecting other BMX Bandits film items and got hold of a Mask to go with the Blue Helmet, even found the Oakley stickers to put on it
