Re: Mongoose Builds! Mongoose Questions! Post them here...

Hey Guys,

Just going to start a clean up/partial restoration on my old 80' Supergoose, and I have a few questions.   First off, I bought this bike from a buddy of mine back around 1981. I raced it from then until about 1986. Since then, my nephew used it for a couple years in the early 2000's, and it has just been sitting in the shed until know. 

The bike is still sitting the same way as I raced it back in the 80s. Minus one rear blue Araya 7X rim that my nephew trashed, So I will need to locate one or a set of those.

Anyway, my first question is in regards to the mongoose gold stem.   On the clamps, mine has hex head bolts. Not button head Allen screws.  Did they make any like this. From the pictures I've seen, all of them have the button had Allen screws.   Mine has had these bolts in it since I got it from my buddy Wayback in the day.   Wonder if these were on it from the factory, or for some reason my buddy swapped out the originals.

Also,  I plan to keep most of the parts that I had on the bike back in the day on it. (Schwinn sting bars, mx 1000 brakes, unit turbo seat)  But I would like to maybe put a three piece crank set on it. Any recommendations here? Something period correct.  Currently it still has the original one piece.   Now that I'm getting to be an old man, and no longer financing this bike with paper route money, I would like to add a few different things that I just couldn't afford back when I raced it. Hence the three-piece crank. Also, when I'm done, I will ride the thing around a little bit, but it's gonna spend most of its time now down my basement.  Amongst my wife's deer mounts.  (She's a bow hunter) lol.

I've been out of the BMX scene for well over 30 years, so kind of way out of the loop. 

Any and all advice welcome.  Thanks in advance.

Randy

Oh, one last thing. Since I found this site a couple weeks ago, I have a strange hankering for a 24 or 26.  You guys at BMX museum are definitely a bad influence!!

I picked this bad boy up a few months ago as-is only wiped her off and and tossed on the old plate. When I say “wiped her off” I mean that’s all I did. Still rides great. 1980 Cherry Bomb Motomag.
