1984 Mongoose Californian

My rider

Another scrap heap jewel. I got this frame and fork with the idea of building a bike to ride and have fun on. My friend had an Cali that I rode and loved the way it felt and handled. It was really rusty when I got it but salvageable for sure. I gave it a long vinegar bath. It took a while and a lot of labor to bring the shine back. I wanted it to be somewhat light but strong ( I'm not a 165 lb racer anymore). I basically built it from extra parts from my other builds and some help from Porkchop. I really like the way it came out and she rides like a dream. This was a fun bike to build!!

Well little did everyone know, E-Brake takes it over to the Big Side Of Jumps,and Walt is like ( can't say what he really said,but u get the picture ) and Damn there goes E-Brake down the hill and Nails Every Jump ! lol It Was Sick !
