1981 Mongoose Motomag

The frame and the crank were purchased off craig's list, tires purchased from an old bicycle store and all other parts are vintage BMX parts.... Redline rims,drainpipe seatpole,wilderness seat,mushroom grips,mongoose handelbars, OG mongoose crank,mongoose neck, bear trap pedals, Mongoose forks, and Kenda tires (20 x 2.125 front tire and 20 x 1.75 in the rear tire) it don't get much better than that!!boyeee I had a Californian Mongoose in 1983 when I was 14 yrs old and it was stolen from me by an older guy that I thought I could trust. So that is why I rebuilt this bike to fix my broken heart..Had alot of fun with the rebuild and it came out better than I thought it would.Eat your heart out boyz Peace...

Re: 1981 Mongoose Motomag

Love the white, really makes this, ya a white seat would finish it nice, do the pedals in chrome or white as well. clean as hell though. is this the show chrome version? doesn't have the "off" that nickle ones get from age, or its just well kept.

I don't concour with the red seat idea.
I think a white seat with red pads, either the old vinly ones or newer would look sweet!


I'm looking for the following frames, frame & forks or completes by BMX products:
MotoTrac (nickle or chrome), Racer-X or a Super-X (with the double gussets).
Thanks wink

Yes a white seat would do it.I just cant do pads or chain gaurds or kickstands i find that shit so gay all my boys say the same thing They would ripp pads off your bike if you had them on back in the day.

Re: 1981 Mongoose Motomag

Is this is a rider?
Either way, don't do the chain gaurd or kickstand thing.
Not cool and adds weight!
