1980 Mongoose Moosegoose

This is the second project finished.

After finishing the cruiser, I got the itch to try my hand @ another project. This frame & forks was purchased from Western Australia. Parts for this bike came from everywhere. A big thanks to everyone who helped me complete my dream ride, 98% Happy Camper.

Re: 1980 Mongoose Moosegoose

Nice ride JT, real nice build!

I to am considering a moose, but the price of these things at the moment is crazy.

Cruiser looks awesome too. Very nice bike.

Looking forward to seeing your next project:)
