1978 TEAM MONGOOSE ABSOLUTELY SICK!! FIRST LET ME SAY THAT I AM A STICKLER FOR ORIGINAL AND ERA CORRECT STUFF. THIS BIKE CAME TO ME COMPLETE ORIGINAL INCLUDING PAD SET. IT HAS THE ORIGINAL COMPLETE SHIMANO DURA ACE CRANK WITH ALL THE ORIGINAL HARDWARE AD SHIMANO CHAIN RING. THE ORIGINAL WHEEL SETS WHICH ARE MADE UP OF ARAYA 7B RIMS, 80G STAINLESS STEEL SPOKES, AND SHIMANO HUBS AND A SHIMANO 16 TOOTH BMX CASSETTE.ORIGINAL PAINT AND DECALS ON FRAME. SOME PAINT IS FLAKED OFF OF THE BOTTOM OF THE CRANK CASE, THE LEFT GUSSET, AND HAS SOME SCRATCHES ON THE BOTTOM TUBE AND REAR BOTTOM TUBE, BUT IT IS ORIGINAL AND THAT IS WHY I HAVEN'T PAINTED IT. HAS THE ORIGINAL GOLD STEM DOUBLE CLAMP NECK WITH THE ORIGINAL STICKER ON IT. ORIGINAL BARS AND SEAT POST, A COUPLE LIGHT SCRATCHES.ORIGINAL SEAT PROFESSIONALLY REUPHOLSTERED WITH RED SUEDE. THE SAME UPHOLSTER INSTALLED NEW SNAPS ON THESE ORIGINAL PADS AND THEY LOOK & WORK EXCELLENT. BACK SIDE OF PADS COULD USE A SIMPLE CLEANING. ORIGINAL REAR REFLECTOR WITH OLD SCHOOL STICKER THAT SAYS " IF YOU VALUE YOUR LIFE AS MUCH AS I VALUE MY BIKE..DON'T MESS WITH IT!" NOS BLUE MX 1000 REAR BRAKE & LEVER. ORIGINAL RED CABLE ( NEEDS REPLACED). NOS RED PEDALS , THE ORIGINAL MKS PEDALS THAT CAME WITH THE BIKE BUT THEY ARE ROUGH. THE TIRES ARE ERA CORRECT BUT NOT ORIGINAL. THE ORIGINAL TIRES HAVE SEEN BETTER DAYS, THEY ARE CHENG SHIN AND THE REAR IS FATTER THAN THE FRONT ONE. SERIAL NUMBER IS CL8 WHICH MEANS CHATSWORTH CALIFORNIA, DECEMBER 1978, THEN THE MAKE NUMBER 124919 AND A T UNDER THAT WHICH STANDS FOR TEAM. ERA CORRECT RED NOS KNOCK OFF GRIPS. THIS BIKE WOULD ORIGINALLY HAVE COME WITH RED OAKLEYS.THE FRONT FORK IS THE ORIGINAL DECOSTER FORK THAT THESE TEAM MODELS CAME WITH, BUT IT WAS ROUGH SO IT WAS REPAINTED CANDY BLUE AND HAS EXACT REPLICA TEAM MONGOOSE DECALS ON IT.
