1996 Mongoose Expert Pro

The last of the looptail Mongoose

I've owned a few of these 90s era Expert Pros over the years but this is by far my favorite and one ill be holding onto. It was originally black but was very sun faded so I decided to have it powdered yellow to fit the 84' decals I used. Since my first Mongoose Expert was the 84'. Very happy with how it turned out.
As far as parts go. I kept the original forks and sprocket. Everything else is as follows...
Wheels - SE 7x style 36 spoke, double wall
Tires - Snakebelly 20x1.75
Brakes - Dia-Compe
Levers - Dia-Compe Locking Tech 77
Bars - Odyssey 10" rise
Grips - Mongoose
Stem - SE Threadless
Headset - Tange Seiki Threadless
Bottom Bracket - Odyssey Dynatron
Seat - Kashimax
Post - Cro-Moly Laid Back
Clamp - Dia-Compe
Pedals - Mongoose
Chain - KMC Z
Cranks - 175mm Cro-Moly

Looks great in yellow.  I love the old school twist with the decals too.
