I loved the color of the candy blue Team Mongoose frames from the late 70's and early 80's

Me too, I just restored a '79 Goose in candy red after flipping a coin to decide the color.

Re: Candy Blue Builds....Show me what you got!

Nice.

I've been going back and forth between a chrome or blue seat post.  With the frame/fork/bars being blue, and most of the parts being chrome, polished silver or black, I am kind of leaning toward the chrome seat post.  The one-piece cranks are chrome, the neck, seat post clamp, pedals, and rims are polished aluminum, and the hubs, pedals, sprocket, seat, tires, grips will all be black.
