1986 Mongoose Expert

From what I have learned.  This is the only year that this color was on the mongoose race bike.

I have had this bike since I bought it new in 1986. Yes , I actually paid for it myself with grass cutting money, birthday and Christmas money. This bike is almost completely original from the day I bought it. Yes, I bought it with the black Z rims. I paid a extra $20 at the shop to switch out the pro class rims for the Z rims. The only things needed to make it exactly as I purchased it is that I need the gray seat post and the gray seat. Somehow I lost the OG seat post and the gray seat faded into a funky greenish color.

If anyone has a gray mongoose seat post or the gray mongoose seat then please PM me and I will buy it from you.

This just in: Drinking water supply has been compromised. Symptoms include acting irrational and disrespectful when discussing race, religion, and politics. Many impacted.

Re: 1986 Mongoose Expert

Have you considered attempting to dye the seat grey again? I had success dying a white one black with fabric dye.

Black to gray would be a task and to dye a white seat to any color is probably the easiest to dye imo . I don't have the gray seat anymore. I need to find one though.
