1981 Mongoose Motomag

When stranger things happen.....

Hi all,

Thought I'd share some photos of my '81 motomag.
The frame and forks were in great shape when I got them,  but suffered from possibly the worst powder coat job I've seen.  I had it stripped and re-powdered "signal red", and applied fresh decals.
To the wheels..... I bought this set of "stranger things" alloys from a guy in the US, but thought they might look a bit too garish on a red bike.  Still,  I tried them out,  and after having recovered from the burned retina I actually quite like it.  Love it or hate it,  you simply can't overlook it!
I've ordered a set of yellow pads and will add some more photos when I have them.  Might be a bit of yellow overload though,  so we'll see.
I'd love to hear your thoughts.
Cheers

Why thank you sir!
The yellow pads actually looked dreadful on it, so I've not bothered to upload more photos!
