2019 Mongoose Stranger Things Custom

Powder coating from "the master", Chip @ C4Labs. Team Mongoose repro decals from BMX Products.

I'll probably catch grief for this one! This is a 2019 Mongoose Stranger Things Special Edition that I fully molested. The reason behind the decision to do this is when I was 11 years old I wanted a "real BMX" bike so bad and I pestered my parents until they gave in. My dad took me to Boyd's Bicycles in my hometown and I fell in love with a candy blue 1981 Team Mongoose, but when my dad heard the price he told the owner that he would have to think about it and we left. I found out later that my parents couldn't afford a bike that expensive. I ended up with a white 1981 Huffy Pro Thunder from the local Hill's Department store. None the less, I loved that bike and totally destroyed that thing. So this was my way of finally getting that bike! My dad is gone now and I can't imagine how he felt when he couldn't afford to buy me the bike that I wanted. Well dad, I finally got one!

No harm no foul on this one. Looks good and has a story to go along with it.

Very cool...  I love the color scheme... I picked up one of those Stranger Things Mongooses real cheap new in the box a while back and definitely want to at minimum turn it into just a Mongoose Chrome replica with the proper decals etc...
