1985 Mongoose Californian

1985 Mongoose Californian

Cru Jones build

We have all seen the movie and longed for one of those RAD bikes when we were kids. As an adult I still wanted one so I built one. I had the local tailor make these pads for me. The pads are fully stitched, no yellow tape or quick gimmick.
The bike is an 85 cali that I took the decals off (except the store sticker) to make it look asnit did I. The movie. I couldn’t fins a good blue seat that came on the 85s (they all looked greenish) so I went and purchased this NOS seat, which is quite comfortable. The power disc I got from a friend and it is damn near perfect. Ofcourse I purchased a 25th anniversary plate from an online auction page and put it on, finishing off the build. I did put on repop grips, I used my other blue grips on my 24” pro class build. Shouldn’t matter too much, I ride all these bikes and eventually these grips will be worn too...

RAD bike!!! GAry
