1997 Mongoose Sniper

*****Sold*****
Another one of my polish projects

I've had this frame for a while and thought I may as well do something with it, so I gave it an OA bath and a polish or three.
I particularly like the enclosed ends of the stays , a very neat touch I think.
Only thing original on this is the frame and even that I'm not sure about.
Everything else is more of whatever I had layin about.
The Polished list includes
Bulldog brake (extensively)
Chain wheel
Frame n Forks
Raw chrome handlebars (just to see how long until they start rusting)
Stem (extensively)

Really nice bike mate. I had one of these new when I was a kid and just this week started restoring one.
