1986 Mongoose Pro Class 24

1986 Mongoose Pro Class 24

Just added Pro Class 3 piece cranks on 10-9-09.

Here is my Mongoose 24 inch Pro Class Cruiser I completed in 2006. The forks, Pro Class cruiser bars and Pro Class neck are original as is the chrome finish. The rest of my Pro Class Cruiser consists of these NOS parts: Black anno Hatta headset, Oakley B 1 grips, Mongoose padset, Cycle Pro Shotgun II seat, Uni 7005 aluminum seat post, Dia Compe hinged seatpost clamp, Dia Compe black MX 1000 rear brake and Tioga Comp III rainbow label tires. The other parts are used in great condition(UGC):Skyway mags with freewheel adapter, Suntour XC II first generation pedals. I added the Pro Class cranks on10-9-09. I usually take my bikes on a short ride after I am finished with the build (if it's not built as a rider) before I put them in my basement BMX collection. Hope you Old Schoolers like it!

Great bike!  The Mongoose and Redline 24s were the only ones I was remotely interested in BITD.

Re: 1986 Mongoose Pro Class 24

They made the Kos Kruiser, which is a 26 incher, a two-four and a Pro Class, both 24 inchers. All very nice rides! I stand at 5'8" so the 24's are perfect for me.

Re: 1986 Mongoose Pro Class 24

a friend tells me these bikes are not worth riding as they were designed for 16 year old kids, they also have bad design spec compared with todays bikes like "we the people" they do the best cruiser. What are your thoughts on these statements. I'd like to buy an oldskool cruiser, I prefer these to the new ones but I'd like to ride it not put it on my wall...

Re: 1986 Mongoose Pro Class 24

It does't matter about the age. I feel it's about the height and weight. I am over 40, 5'8", 150 lbs and my favorite ride is my 1983 GT Cruiser. (Back in the day they raced these bikes hard and they held up great!) It is 100% chromoly, much lighter then today's 40 plus pound Cruisers, and it handles great. Same with the Redline PL-24. I would suggest a 90's GT Cruiser. The Cruisers I mentioned are $1000.00 plus with all the good stuff on them. You can pick up a 90's GT Cruiser for less then half of that and you will have a very nice Cruiser.  And that is my opinion(non bias about Old School, yea right!)

Re: 1986 Mongoose Pro Class 24

$1000.00!!! that's not cheap, some cost that back in the day so...
thanks for sharing your opinion. I'm 37 about 6ft 8"  I ride a Cannondale but would like a nippy light ride. what do you think of "we the people"? I'm told they're the best new cruisers. bit heavy and cluncky for me, I'm looking for a classy retro looking bike. I checked out the ones you mentioned, they look like just the thing but maybe I'm just too tall..?

Re: 1986 Mongoose Pro Class 24

yeah it's in the museum, It's changed a bit from the photo but I'm not putting up new ones until I do  bit more.
What do you think of three piece cranks? My mate recommends get one.....

Re: 1986 Mongoose Pro Class 24

If you could find a set of early 90's GT stamped, hollow chromoly cranks made by Profile that would be sweet! I have 3 piece cranks on all my Cruisers. Later!

Re: 1986 Mongoose Pro Class 24

very nice. I have a PL-24 with 24" proclass rims and was wondering what they would have come on stock.  I guess this bike would be it.  very nice bike indeed!
