1981 Mongoose Motomag

1981 Mongoose Motomag

Rare white color. Not many of these white ones exist. Where are they if they do. This is all original paint, decals, etc, etc, etc.... Not sure if is a motomag as its not stickered as one and all deca

The story goes like this......
I saw an ad on Monday morning for an 81' mongoose. The person didn't have a phone number listed, so I emailed them but did not get any kind of response until Tuesday night. It turned out to be a man named  Chris who is really cool. He lives over an hour from me, but i assumed the bike was original from the three cruddy pics he had posted as well as the way he described the bike to me. In the ad i noticed it had the newer style (85'-86') goose pads, chain guard, skyway tuff ii's with reflectors still on them that have a mongoose symbol on them so that's what made me interested. 
Once him and I finally had a time set reflecting his hectic work schedule we finally met this late afternoon. I got to his house and nearly fainted trying to keep my composure as he had the chain guard and pads off. All the parts are in perfectly mint original condition. The only thing that does not look original to the bike are the tires, possibly the tuff II's and the pad set. The Serial is CC1 40***  I think it's a motomag? Is it? Are these tuff two wheels original, and or rare with the mongoose stamping? I have also been told by numerous people that this white color on motomags is rare as well.... Please, I would love to hear your info on this 81' mongoose motomag. If it is a motomag............... smile
Thanks,Sean

I can not sit still. I have been tested for A.D.D. and A.D.H.D. and have neither. I don't need coffee, I just need a B.M.X. or surfboard to consistently ride and I'll be happy. smile

Re: 1981 Mongoose Motomag

giving the frame some TLC right now. Some Luke warm water and soap. Never got a chance to clean it yet. Stay tuned for some more pics....
