Re: 1985 Mongoose Californian

MYONE loving the cali! Sorry to hear about your story when you were younger. a simular thing happened to me. The bike after my Ammaco team special was an Ammaco freestlye pro in beautiful white. I loaned it to a mate and never saw it again, "it got stolen" he said. I was seventeen and i could of cried. Wish I had it now.

Re: 1985 Mongoose Californian

Beuatiful bike, myone.  I feel your pain with the bike getting stolen.  My Californian (in my bikes section) was the replacement for the 1985 Californian that I got for Christmas that year.  The red accesories look great on your bike!  Good luck with it.

Re: 1985 Mongoose Californian

I agree, this is a clean sweet ride you have "myone".
I need to find me one for my flock of geese collection.


I'm looking for the following frames, frame & forks or completes by BMX products:
MotoTrac (nickle or chrome), Racer-X or a Super-X (with the double gussets).
Thanks wink
I'm also johnng23604 at "Retro-goose", "VintageBMX" & "RADbmx"

Re: 1985 Mongoose Californian

I had a californian years ago. Mine had all chrome and polished parts. Looks great with the red mate. I always liked to put a different colour trim in my pro class wheels. I even had some spare chrome strips for that bling look. Keep up the good work mate. You have some nice rides.smile


Brackens padset found finally!!
