Re: 1981 Team Mongoose

Wow!! nice build...
Reminds me of one of the firs "real" bikes I ever wanted..
I bet the red clear is MUCH better than original kind, that flaked and chipped when looked at wrong..
Looks very era specific, thanks for adding to the bmxmuseum!

Re: 1981 Team Mongoose

You must be stoked with this one Shane?   Is that your fastest build to date because i was still unwrapping the pedals i got off Des and you had this finished!!   Looks sweet bro, cant wait to see your next build!!!

Re: 1981 Team Mongoose

One of the sweetest Mongoose builds in the Museum. Your bike looks like the ones on the showroom floor BITD :-)

I couldn't afford one "off the shelf" so mine was a mongrel Mongoose like this one that I have put together (very similar to my ride BITD) smile http://bmxmuseum.com/bikes/mongoose/22120


Any other OS Whyalla riders out there?
