Re: 1987 Mongoose Decade

Thanks guys.  I'm actually going to get rid of the mags though and go with chrome 48's on it.  Just waiting on my rims to show up.  I like the mags buuuut I just have to go with spokes.  smile

Me neither!  smile  This bike was actually all white and I had it chromed and welded on 990's to make it the Pro Model.

Matt (chromey) did the artwork for the decals for me and I had my guy here in Edmonton print them off for me.  They turned out great.  smile

Re: 1987 Mongoose Decade

Hey Thanks guys.  The mags are actually OGK's.  The originals that came with it.  I just cut off the reflector tabs.  smile  It was a hard decision on the forks too.  I must have pondered chroming them about 100 times over.  smile

Re: 1987 Mongoose Decade

First class. I saw the sneak preview picture a few weeks or months ago. I anxiously wanted to see what you would do with one of these. You may remember I sent the Spintech instructions.
