1985 Mongoose Californian

Motomag-style '85 Cali

This bike was built for my older brother, who got me into BMX in the first place. I bought the frame/fork on eBay, and it came with the following original parts:

-SR Sakae stem

-Pro Class chainwheel

-SR Cosmo-Lite crank

-SR Pedals

-Laidback seat post with Dia Compe MX clamp


The parts I added were:

-Motomag II wheels with ACS Freecoaster rear hub

-Kenda dirt tires

-KMC chain

-Unknown chrome V-Bars

-Repop Mongoose grips

-Odyssey 1999 front brake and lever

-Viscount padded seat

-Black vinyl pads (I realize the GTX frame pad is incorrect, but it was all I could find and it matches so it'll have to do.)


2019 update:

I added pictures 1 through 4 to show the updates that my brother has made:

-Fat street tires

-Bell mountain/road bike style seat

-Blue KMC chain

-Rear Odyssey 1999 brake and lever to match the front
