Re: Mongoose Serial Number Info

Can anyone help me out with this please?

Serial no. HQHA04399L

The frame appears to be a 1999 Expert Pro but stampings state 1998?

Yep 1999.

What stampings state 1998?

Im only new to this mate, so bare with me......

But from what I can find it states its a 1998 but from what lim iced info I do know its a 1999.

below is the website I got my info from.

https://shop.re-rides.com/blogs/news/mo … new-school


Mid-school Mongoose BMX bikes built through most of the 90’s have a serial number that begins with 4 letters. The 3rd letter corresponds to the year of manufacture.

A      B     C      D     E      F      G      H      I
91   92    93    94    95    96    97    98    99

The 4th letter indicates the Month

A      B       C      D       E        F       G       H       I          J       K        L
Jan  Feb  Mar   Apr   May   Jun   Jul    Aug    Sept   Oct   Nov   Dec



Is this incorrect or am I reading it wrong?

Are you able to point me in the right direction for this model? For I can't find any catalogs or info on this frame, everywhere I look people have different looking frames and parts on a 1999 expert pro.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the info mate,

So with all that info and the above reference the frame was a 1998 build but was constructed as a Expert pro in 1999?

Being built at the beginning of the year like that, for sure makes it a 1998 Frame, then in 1999 they came out as a complete or ??? (not sure on a Model for it one way or another)

Re: Mongoose Serial Number Info

My next question is why do some 1999 25th Anniversary Mongoose Expert Pros have different Seatstays (hopefully I have the right name for it).
Some appear to be stamped and others are not.
Am I looking to far into this??

Pics below are of example of what  going on about.

Could it mean a difference between a Walgoose & a bike shop Mongoose(probably a long reach)

Again mate that's what my thoughts are.

But I didn't think they started doing them until after 1999 and this frame is 1998
