With all the bashing or love for the Stranger Things Mongoose where does this 128 of 500 anniversary bike fit in?

I wish. I went to a good friend who builds hot rods, master tig welder.

Here she sits now. Still doing some resto on the stem and bars, but otherwise just waiting for some parts to show up.

Does nice work. My best friend that I grew up with is like your buddy but I never bring him anything because he has such a backlog of work. Works 7 days a week, I feel guilty. He won't take my money....

Dig the white, like the flanges...


If I had a nickel for every time I've been cursed by a puppet I would have 2 nickels.  Which isn't a lot but it's weird that it happened twice.

Dyed the bianchi seat today. Not kashimax but pretty happy with how it turned out.  On the fence with the cruiser stem, picked up a nice Schwinn Ashtabula stem for $20 may swap it.https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/248286/20210109_205940_copy_1058x1411600ca5afda.jpg

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

Let me start by saying I am no Mongoose expert and this might be a goofy question but ,

what is the differences between the 

* Californian
* Expert
* M1

I see they are all made in same years  "ie  86"  .. is it size ? ... top tube length ? ...  all chromoly vs. tri-moly ?


Looking for :

  * NOS  Tuf Neck power disc & chain ring in GOLD  ...  * NOS chrome MX 1000 brakes  ...  * ACS Z-rim hoops/wheels in pink "Woody Itson" signature model …  * NOS/Mint Shimano DX pedals in Red or Blue ... * NOS/Mint Suntour XC-II pedals  9/16 ... * NOS / Mint Sugino 40 or 42 chain ring chrome  ...

I believe it was mostly down to componentry level and bar size,  the M1 being the bargain bike of the three. I'm pretty sure all M1's were steel and Californians/Experts were at different times some variation of 4130 or Tri-Moly. Seems to be some inconsistencies there from what I read.

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

So, lot's of awesome OS stuff in thread.   Thought I'd add my 2021 NS race rig build.  A 2020 title elite.  Started as a pro XL complete off of amazon for ~$450 in Nov 2020 but I've since replaced a "couple" of parts -- which is no different than BITD.  It's still a build.  Right?!?!? lol

So I bought this frame and fork spray bombed at a flea market with a lil digging I found out it’s an 87 mongoose fs1 with out the peg bracket on the dropouts... the weird thing is is the forks... I’ve never seen any mongoose forks that had a straight cut on the bottom of the fork where the dropouts are... so I started digging again on the forks... I’m thinkin they are either traker or Yorker forks.. or the big question is did mongoose make em flat on the bottom like that and are they early mongoose before the angle cut... any info will help
