1988 Mongoose Decade

my daily beater for the past 6 years

i bought the frame for 5$ at a swap meet then i bought the rims there too (not mongoose rims). some one painted over the handle bars and the seat post. it doesn't have original seat because it didn't come with one. not original grips. orignal headset, not orignal headset, acs rotor. i love this bike and it is nice and light. i am going to be restoring the paint on the parts that were painted over.  awsome bike.  my first rider at 13 in 2007

Re: 1988 Mongoose Decade

the original frame color was red along with the handle bars.  but some one spray painted a little orange on the handlebars.  the original seat post plus clamp was white but someone spray painted them red.  and the rims were white but these aren't the original rims.  i have no idea what kind of rims they are.  i just saw some rims at the swap meet i liked so i bought them.  thnx for the comment.

Re: 1988 Mongoose Decade

i guess the first question is what are the rims made of?  Lesters were very early mags. 70's style....they were made of metal...sorta like the mongoose motomag rims...

Re: 1988 Mongoose Decade

very nice! liked the you tub vido. but it should have had a close up of the hole bike in it. its kinda hard to see the bike in video. still it was nice to see it geting used!;)


Kindness is like Manure does You No Good unless You spread It around
bikes were made to be pedalled if we don't ride them they get sad:(!
YES I RIDE A PINK BIKE!! WANT TO MAKE SOME THING OUT OF IT!
