1980 Mongoose Motomag

1980 nickel goose

Had this frame for a long time now and the bike was built up a couple of times but never felt 100% so it sat on the back burner until I had all the "right" parts. It's now pretty much exactly how I want it.
The nickel is in lovely condition and I've got a few hours polishing time in it since the first time she was built.
Except for the tyres she's fairly era correct and mongoose stock/option correct.
Nice set of yellow comp 2's might be the final piece but i'm happy with the comp 3's for now.
Full Spec :
1980 nickel mongoose F/F - CJ0 346981
NOS 1979/80 unstamped mongoose SS bars with original decal (these had the original price sticker on before fitting ! )
mongoose gold stem with original decal (early model non-knurled blocks)
NOS mongoose SS seatpost with original decal (fresh out the packet ! )
NOS original mongoose grips (not new re-pops)
Real nice steel hubbed tuff II's
NOS blue/green label comp III's
Kashimax MX mongoose seat
NOS KKT rat traps
Polished DC890 front DC1020 rear
NOS DC cables
NOS DC clips
NOS Skyway Tuff Pads
Nice Sugino mongoose stamped snowflake ring
mint 165mm mongoose stamped crank
mongoose stamped BB
mongoose stamped headset
mongoose stamped seat clamp
NOS KMC chain
nice survivor genuine mongoose vinyl padset
new re-pop decals

Re: 1980 Mongoose Motomag

This one's as sweet as the others I have saved as my favorites!


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

Re: 1980 Mongoose Motomag

If you had this bike in the early 80's, you could rest assured, you ruled!
