1980 Mongoose Motomag

My first

This was the bike that started it all.  My dad took me to Bud's Bike Shop in Cucamonga, CA to pick out my very first BMX bike.  It originally came with chrome steel Femco rims, a coaster brake and the cheapest stock components.  Over time I replaced stock with anodized parts and eventually got a freewheel and brakes.  The frame cracked at the seat post and was replaced with a chrome Redline MX-II.  I have no idea what I did with the frame.

Go figure!  Who knew I would need a drive-side shot for BMX Museum 31 years later?  :D
