I know he is doing most of the late 80's decals but not sure if he has done the 24" decals yet. I'm sure he could make it happen.

OK...let me introduce you to the Pro Class that started it all...the 1982 Mongoose Pro Class 20" in Black Chrome.

What better way to start this with Mr. Skip Hess himself posing proudly with one of THE coolest Mongoose bikes ever made!

http://i55.photobucket.com/albums/g139/ … 1312845203

Here are some spec pictures from the March 1983 BMX Action magazine...

http://i55.photobucket.com/albums/g139/ … 1312845490

http://i55.photobucket.com/albums/g139/ … 1312845675

Here is a catalog photo...

http://i55.photobucket.com/albums/g139/ … 1312845815

Now...here is my all original aside from the tires which I still haven't found yet... sad ...1982 Mongoose Pro Class in Black Chrome.  I haven't seen a nicer all original PC yet...I won't call this one NOS because it has been built up by me.  But...I will say that it is in Mint condition.  The nicest, coolest finish I have ever seen on a bike.  There are a few Black Chrome 20's listed on the Museum...most of which have been re-finished...this is all OG Black Chrome goodness...and yes...I have the seat reflector as well... tongue

http://i55.photobucket.com/albums/g139/ … 1312846172

Now...some interesting info...the '82 Pro Class brake bridge has an interesting difference from the later '83 and on frames.

This picture shows the difference between the two...here is an '83 on the left and a '82 on the right.

http://i55.photobucket.com/albums/g139/ … 1312846466

Hope you like this one...it is my personal favorite in my collection.

Wow thats some excellent info there on the frames, Thanks and let the education begin.

Re: Mongoose PRO CLASS ONLY thread anyone?

This is my other 1984 OG Mongoose Pro Class in Black Chrome.  The build was inspired by a bike I saw on the Vintage site in the Museum...it is in the first picture.  After I saw it...I knew I had to build one up very similar to it.
