Re: 1980 Mongoose Motomag

sweet ride. old school bikes(f/f setup) with new school parts always look the best.

Holy geeez!  That Goose is beautiful and that color blue is nothing but amazing!  Blue also happens to be my favorite color but that's beside the point.  An instant fave James!

Re: 1980 Mongoose Motomag

Great bike for your daughter... I wanna do the same for mine but she's only 3.  How old is yours?  I got a few old school frame and forks from the 80's
