1978 Mongoose Motomag

1978 Mongoose Motomag

OLD SCHOOL MONGOOSE FRAME & FORK PAINTED FIRE RED CANDY. THIS IS A CHATSWORTH MADE FRAME (CI8) 1978. LOOKS GREAT AND SHARP. NO CRACKS OR DENTS. THE STICKERS ARE REPRODUCTION. NOS Suntour Stem, seat clamp, fluted alloy seat post, Sumo rims with KT hubs, Snakebelly type tires. I love the way the Gold pops out against the red frame/fork.

That DiamondBack would look sweet parked next to this in my garage!  I wish I had a set of gold 3pc alloy cranks for this like your DB has.  Got any extras?..lol

Re: 1978 Mongoose Motomag

I'm definately glad to have this one back and will be holding onto it indefinately!  I learned my lesson lol
I took a few new pics of it today Alex with the chain on it.  I need a red non-aero seat for it if anyone has one for sale.

Actually, I sold this bike a little while ago to Blue_Max and he was cool enough to sell it back to me.  I learned a lesson from that, and won't be doing that again!  big_smile  Thanks for the compliments!

It was definately a nice bike, I just couldn't bring myself to ride it and did not have the space to hang it on a wall and display it.  glad to hear that your enjoying it back smile  let me know if you find a non red aero seat, I might have one.  i'll check and get back to you. I could really use the aero seat thats on the bike you have, maybe we could trade if I still have one around.

I'm not sure if that's a compliment or an insult tongue

Re: 1978 Mongoose Motomag

Stunning bike!


I get this question often so here it is to save everyone time. I do not have any Mongoose DMC decals left. I was lucky enough to find a small bunch of NOS decal sets in an old bike shop that no longer exists and I have since sold them all. Sorry. I wish you all the best of luck with your DMC builds.
