1984 Mongoose Californian

Older than me...

(I DO NOT OWN THIS RIDE, PICS POSTED WITH OWNERS PERMISSION!)
So in to my shop rolls this beautiful 1984 'Goose (dirty, dingy and covered in years of gunk!) and the owner says he wants her cleaned up and rebuilt a little...I'm not one to keep a lady in waiting so I tossed on a pair of Black Ops gummy pedals, a new KMC chain, rebuilt the bottom bracket, rebuilt the headset and polished the hell out of everything I could...What ya'll think?
What I started with...
The fork after a good cleaning...
Proof the lady is a Californian...
Cleaned, new chain...Lookin' good!

Re: 1984 Mongoose Californian

Cool ride :)


I'm looking for the following frames, frame & forks or completes by BMX products:
MotoTrac (nickle or chrome), Racer-X or a Super-X (with the double gussets).
Thanks ;)
I'm also johnng23604 at "Retro-goose", "VintageBMX" & "RADbmx"
