1981 Mongoose Supergoose

I was on my way home from work one day, and decided to stop into a local junk/secondhand store that I haven't visited in a while. I walked through the entire place, and in the furthest back corner room, I noticed a few BMX bikes. Most importantly, this beautiful chrome Supergoose. The bike looks like it was ridden for a year, and then put away in storage. The serial indicates a September 1981 build date. It does not look like a single nut or bolt has ever been adjusted after assembly. The Mongoose snakebelly tires still hold air. I am posting these pics AS FOUND. I have not (and most likely will not) clean or polish a thing.
These pics show how the bike was found, and really demonstrate a true SURVIVOR. Enjoy!

Wow, that's an incredible survivor. Glad you're leaving it as is.

Looking for a USA-made pre 1981 Redline MXII f/f with original black paint and decals.
