Re: 1979 Mongoose Motomag Sidehack

Thanks guys. 
I'm looking for another set of these bars.
These are bent to hell and they're so pinched that they slip.
They're like 23" wide and about 10" high.

Also looking for some Winner's Circle clear (natural) grips for it.

Re: 1979 Mongoose Motomag Sidehack

Somebody sent me some free rat trap pedals just to do this right.
Also replaced the stem bolts with a more correct set.
Just waiting for some straight box bars to arrive and get a paint job.

Finally got the coaster brake working correctly tonight after discovering that a bearing was missing.
Put the seat way down and sent out my 5yr old test pilot.  He's claiming it as his now...
Put the seat way up and took it out myself.  Felt like I was 10 years old!
