1995 Mongoose Menace

A Black Blue Streak Looptail with a nod to the new school

"I just want it out of the garage," said Jim. I was happy to see that Jim's son had ridden the hell out of this bike. The Mongoose expert bars had been laid down so many times that I had to file them in order to get bar ends on em. At any rate, it had not been ridden for years and the last time "little jimmy" worked on it, he packd the BB and rear axle with Vasoline- huh? Anyway, I am a sucker for Mongoose looptails so I had to have this rig for 30 dollars. I threw a pair of CST (Cheng Shin Tires) white walls on it, a pair of Old School Ame Tri's, new white cable sna dhousing and some white new school bar ends from a set of Odyssey Aaron Ross grips and now the Menace is ready to strike terror down at the local 7-11 again. This was a fun rebuild.
