Just got this back from powder. A 96" Mongoose Expert Pro. Wanted to do something completely different than other Mongoose builds I've done in the past. I saw an old Orange Crush ad and that's what inspired me.

This looks killer like the orange.

Thanks!

That orange and blue is going to look sick together!

Yeah, I'm dying to get it together. Hopefully by the end of April.

Gotta start with something right? Most my parts look like that before my builds. Check out my Haro master and trike build. Most my parts started off like that.

Agreed. I'm at the point now where I prefer survivor or refinishing parts.

Here are the Rules for last year:
***********************************************************************

Each member of the Museum can submit up to 3 (1 for each class) bikes into the Build Off, as long as you are a BMXmuseum member before 3/29/2018 you can participate.

The entry threads will close on April 14th at 9:00 PM (PST). Completed Builds can be submitted any time after May 20, 2018 when the completed thread opens. The deadline to submit a complete will be June 2nd, 2018. That is a 14 day window to submit your bikes. Voting threads will open June 10th, 2018 & close June 23rd, 2018

When posting your final picts in the COMPLETED THREADS, only 4 pics will be allowed. Again this year, a short description w/picts is fine but no stories please. Any miscellaneous comments from others will be deleted without warning. These threads will only be for participating members to show their final shots. Any comments can be added to the link below in the comments/progress thread.

All bikes must be BMX or FREESTYLE. Restored, Polished, Spray bombed, Re-Chromed, NOS, Survivor, whatever you want to enter is fine.

Bikes MUST be built within the time frame given. No previously submitted bikes to the Museum or in other build-offs are allowed.

All members of the BMXMuseum will be able to vote as long as you registered BEFORE Thursday, 29th of March! You can't vote for your own bike. You will vote for your favorite 3 in each class, (9 choices total) in any order on the voting thread. Most votes gets first place, second most gets second place, Etc. If there are any ties GAry will be the tie breaking vote.

Most of all lets have fun building some cool bikes!!!!!!!!! big_smile
Here are the links to the different classes. Please enter your bike in the correct place. Survivors/OG & Restored bikes will compete with each other in their respective class.

Re: whens the 2019 spring build off going down?

It looks like the years on the rules is from last year I don't no but that's what it looks like.

Completed Builds can be submitted any time after May 20, 2018 when the completed thread opens. The deadline to submit a complete will be June 2nd, 2018.

Only reason I say this I can't do the build off because it says, as long as you are a BMXmuseum member before 3/29/2018 you can participate.

Hope someone can figure it out Thanks!

I just seen it said rules from last year SO I'm Good??

Re: whens the 2019 spring build off going down?

Buying all new or nice stuff for a build is too expensive and if I ever decide to sell my builds they need to be profitable or at least break even. Buying crusty stuff and refinishing them is the best way to keep the costs down and have your ‘fingerprints’ on it.
     The reason I am getting everything ready now is because I am always rushing at the last minute to finish builds. Not this year! My plan is to have all my parts ready for assembly on day 1. Finish the build the same week build off starts and have it submitted the second submission opens.

Agreed! As for parts, eh let's just say I'm hoping to at least have a good majority by the time the build off officially starts. But I will definitely finish on time.

Re: whens the 2019 spring build off going down?

I’m in! It’s been 4 years since I participated. I got 2nd in Freestyle that year. This year I have a good idea of what I’m gonna build.


If your trying to sell something don’t expect me to make YOU an offer. Come up with a price and then we go from there.

Re: whens the 2019 spring build off going down?

I seriously love build offs! I like competition. It gives me the motivation to build my own stuff in a timely manner rather than procrastinate. I honestly don’t think I would have done as nice of a job on that trike or the haro if I wasn’t trying to place in top 4. I would have just threw some parts laying around and rode it. At least now I ride em in style. I have about 3 more bikes left in my personal collection for build off then I am done.

Damn. I'll probably be finished with my first ever build before this thing even starts! Oh well, no one likes new school 29" GTs anyway tongue
