1987 Mongoose Californian

One of the coolest Mongoose ever!

This is one of my favorite Mongoose of all time, remember the Miami Vice magazine ad? I had one of these back in 88, got it used from a friend's brother, it was in immaculate condition. Anyway, I've always taken pics of all my bikes once finished or just purchased...this one for whatever reason, escaped the photo shoot. The cool thing about this bike is that I ended up participating in this tv show called Roller Stars with it, in Argentina . It was a little bit of roller derby, skateboarding and freestyle all wrapped up in a cheesy tv show...so, no pics, but lots of tv time!
Bike Check
I got this one complete from someone here on the museum. Seems to be mostly original with the exception of a few parts on this very nice survivor. I replaced the canonized MX clamp for the original Mongoose donut one and put some nice black/tan wall tires on it. I also installed my version of Mongoose rim strips. Looks great! Down the road, when I find the right Tioga Comp III in 1.75, I'll replace the rear 2.125 I have on it now...I just couldn't look at the blue tires it came with anymore.
