1979 Mongoose Motomag

Old Mongoose with new attitude (sold)

Bought this at a shop that was closing. Re powder coated everthing and bought some new school stuff to complete the color scheme I was going for. I basically had a chain when I started and build the bike because I wanted to use this orange chain.

Re: 1979 Mongoose Motomag

That's awesome! I have been thinking about doing something like that for over a year. I basically thought that padset would look great on a white Mongoose. I even have those tires and an orange brakeset.

Re: 1979 Mongoose Motomag

Thank you! I love this build. You can actually use it without feeling like you will never find the parts again.

I really like that Maurice sprocket. Can you imagine how many zillions of those they'd have sold if they were available in 1980???

Re: 1979 Mongoose Motomag

I always love to see a really popular bike that most people feel like they "have to" restore to og redone custom. esp when its done with some  vision and imagination. awesome cool
