1981 Mongoose Moosegoose

Mint condition frame and fork.
I actually own the Red one!
Thanks Bill!

I have an NOS red one still. May build it one day..
It is too nice to even add parts too. Why doesn't anyone make this finish today?

Re: 1981 Mongoose Moosegoose

Why doesn't anyone make this bike today??????

I guess all the big boys want Cruisers instead of a gangly looking 20".

I am with the Pinto, Pacer, and Gremlin crowd, and this bike is cool as mierda!


Wanted- White Industries Freewheel 19T and 20T, and Big Gulp bars- because I think they look goofy enough to cruise with!

Re: 1981 Mongoose Moosegoose

those are just hilarious to me in person. The headtube is so frickin' tall it just cracks me up. Pics are one thing, but in person it makes you laugh.

Re: 1981 Mongoose Moosegoose

The head tube and seat tube make the rest of the angles look wonky...yes wonky...lol  it's actually sort of upsetting, I'm not sure if I should laugh or cry.  Either way it's different and has a beautiful finish.


I need a pair of 29er forks.

Re: 1981 Mongoose Moosegoose

Funny, I have a 1980 Mongoose frameset that is also NOS (with the box) and the red is pretty similar to that Moose. The picture here is a little dark, but it's really close!

A "Squonk" is like a Mongoose only much harder to find...

Re: 1981 Mongoose Moosegoose

I had a chrome Moose that I actually found curbside back in the early '90's.
I traded it out... stupid like, for a mini F/F, for my son.
Wish I kept it! (could-a,would-a,should-a!)
