1981 Mongoose Motomag

Early nickel Mongoose

I finally managed to get hold of a nickel plated Mongoose from 1981 which would have been the same frame I raced back in the day. I had to ship from the states. Frame from Wisconsin and the forks from Pennsylvania. Both in similar condition as you can see from last picture. A lot of vinegar, wet and dry and metal polish later and you see the finished result which I am really pleased with. Still looking for a Mongoose pad set but will now turn my attention to a Team Mongoose frame which needs a new blue candy coat. Parts list...
