1982 Mongoose Supergoose
1982 Supergoose (UK advert spec)
Had this on the go for over 2 years now !
I remember back in June 2008 a friend sent me a scan of the 1982 UK advert from UK magazine BMX action bike. Since then I've been slowly getting all the right bits in nice enough condition to go on the build. It hasn't been easy !
The one thing I had t let go from the original spec was the mongoose snakebellies - never seen a mint set in red in the 2 years of looking and the last NOS set in blue that I watched went on ebay for something like $600+ !!!
So I went for union snakebellies instead.
Other than that she's exact, with some hard to find parts like the mongoose seat, 1st gen renthal post and NOS original mongoose grips.
The frame is in very nice condition - original chrome AND original decals.
