1980 Mongoose Motomag

1980 Mongoose Motomag

Original WHITE motomag frame/forks !

1980 Mongoose Motomag  CHO 324851.  I bought this as a project bike right here on BMXmuseum from David (Bigpapes), THANKS David!

It was in original white paint with frame and forks.  I stripped the frame and had it powdered. I even powdered the cranks white.  The bars and stem are Schwinn, similar to Ashtabula.  I had the bars chromed to accent the white frame.  BMX Products supplied the decals and mongoose grips.

I still call it a Motomag even though I am running Skyway Tuff II's.  I plan on finding some motomags and polish them to add to the bike.  Red Sugino chain wheel.  Red Rat Trap pedals.  Red Lee Chi brakes. Chrome Dia-Comp brake cable straps. Silver Suntour seat post clamp. Generic post and black seat.

I am still looking for RED handle bar pad and stem pad.  Even possibly a red Mongoose seat.  The bike is NOT perfect but wanted to get some pics submitted before to many scratches and scars from ridding this one!

Re: 1980 Mongoose Motomag

Love the look, it's a lot like my 1979 motomag.

Gotta give props for the rent-a-racer as well.

Re: 1980 Mongoose Motomag

I have a motomag frame originally painted red coming in the mail as I type this.  I have a set of Tuff I mags that are black.  I am going  to copy this bike after seeing this!  Awesome color combination.  Just love it.  Nice job! :D
