1976 Mongoose Motomag

It’s a shorty!

I bought this frame w/ original cranks, sprocket and chain. From the pics before I got it I had planned to powder coat it the factory orange they offered that year. It was badly peppered with some rust in tight spots and welds.
No chain rub or re welds or cracks anywhere to be found. Finally received it and was able to polish it up w/ a lot of elbow grease! I would have never thought it was possible from the pics and my ‘first hands on’ view of the frame. It came out slick, I’ll be keeping it the nickel finish. I guess my visions of an orange 76’ will have to wait! I’ll be getting repro mongoose bmx products stickers shortly and will be building this soon and will add pics when completed.
