Re: Mongoose Serial Number Info

I can't figure this one out. Serial number start with two letters and I can't find any references for that. Any help would be super appreciated.

Re: Mongoose Serial Number Info

Hey everyone!

So I've been reading up on my Mongoose. And just getting confused.

Serial number: C3000099.

From what I've researched, its March 1983 99th built. Whats confusing me is the the frame doesn't have the hoop at the dropouts. It looks like the earlier 80s before the hoop. The brake bridge is a single hole as well.

Any help appreciated. I'll try and get pictures up.

Thanks.

Awesome. Thanks for the reply! It has the original stickers on it. And from my research on that, its an expert. Now I can start rebuilding! Thanks again!

That doesn't make sense. Got a pic of the whole frame?

Re: Mongoose Serial Number Info

It's a regular mongoose. A Californian or Expert,is a looptail,no gusset. You can call it a California Special,though. That was a model made with this frame. I have seen these late frames with the decals that yours have,before. I believe those are original for it.https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/3032/screenshot_20200518-1817105ec3262fa2.png

These are California Specials

Re: Mongoose Serial Number Info

Working on pictures if needed.

BC1E010145

Even a year would be a nice starter...

Looks similar to a 2001 supergoose.

Re: Mongoose Serial Number Info

Thanks Hobbes.

Gonna guess we're talking about a,90s model,since there's no pic.
KP would be code for whatever Taiwanese factory made it.
5=1995
G would be July.
A=Jan
B= Feb.,etc.

Re: Mongoose Serial Number Info

Very nice work done. Must of taken ages to do the research
Correction for the brake bridge in 77 ,march 77 is when the brake bridge was added and the lower gusset was dropped. Ive got 3 of the 77 goose frames , all 3 are on here to see as well
Also the coaster brake tab was still on in 79

Re: Mongoose Serial Number Info

Trying to identify a yard sale find. I know that it's a Mongoose, but all of the identifying decals have been removed. It has a "rectangular" bottom tube. Serial number is BC09209944. Would love to know the year and model. Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.
