Clint I just noticed that you have a monkey tree in your front yard.

Re: 1979 24" Custom Mongoose Build

Clint, would you mind posting the wheelbase on your goose? There have been several comments on how large the bike looks but some of that has to be the higher than normal standover height.

41" axle to axle , I will post the BB height tomorrow , it actually rides really nice. it has to do with matchbox behind the BB, they are big , and if I do another I will be changing that and the rear chain stay length as well

Re: 1979 24" Custom Mongoose Build

Digging this build.  Like the "old" merging with "new".  The chrome is eye popping.  Looking forward to final completion pics.

Q1.)  Did you use mechanical buffer/polisher on the chrome or is that re-chrome?


This BMX resto stuff gets in the blood.  I'm hooked.
