Re: 1999 Mongoose Californian

These are wicked frames, I know a guy thats been trying to brake one since dec 1998..racing in the weekends and skate park during the week..these also handle pegs and rail grinds...Look at the ends of the rear drop outs, they have little lines to show were to file out to make 14mm axles fit..

Re: 1999 Mongoose Californian

i do not have that  i guess cause mine is not aluminum.......you know come to think of it i dont have one aluminum frame gonna have to change that...plus the entire rear of my  frame is nothing like yours  a little similar but not really . i just got the forks today ebay brand new and flawless $24 smile  and had the matching decals from gary here .they match pretty good.Turns out they have murice stamps in them which was a surprise cause they werent mentioned in the listing .
i recently got a neighbors DK poorboy  pretty much used every thing from it to build this so  the parts are not great but decent . $30 complete DK smile ill be selling that frame soon .

Re: 1999 Mongoose Californian

Very Nice,, something I've made a mental note about these Newmans..Some are very nice and some that look the same are nasty.. The good ones seam to have Orange head tube badges , and the not so good ones are black...Even the letters on the frame number are different..The orange badged ones are N I think off hand the black badge ones are M but still start with H8

Re: 1999 Mongoose Californian

ive not heard of em .  back to the s# on mine is weird  starts with  ACL  but has the orange badge...with the thin protective film still on it ..........i love this frame ......i guess paying $10 for it  is a big part of it . It reminds me of a big ax handle .going to put the cranks on today and take a ride see how it is .

Re: 1999 Mongoose Californian

Being Cr-Mo will be why the letters are different, probley built in a different factory..With the orange head badge I bet the frame was wicked nice welds.

Re: 1999 Mongoose Californian

Bang on , thats the orange head tube badge trait..I got this frame for free from Mongoose as a warrentte on a cracked mongoose Jnr..Which the people didnt want anyway..good score..These Newman frames killed bmx for mongoose..which they know..the new 07's are just as good as what they were putting out in the mid 80's have you checked them out?.

I dont dig Haro's, I can get them but dont bother..Over priced I recon (well here anyway)..I got a 30th annv Mongoose Pitcrew 16" withskyway tuffs, Hate the colour, baby shit brown.. but apart from that looks cool, I must put a pic of it up..     I've also just got my Mongoose 3 piece cranks for it as fitted to this years model Pitcrew.

Re: 1999 Mongoose Californian

Ha Ha carbo's in a oldie.. yeah could be done, 1" steerer tube take it to threadless..I'd use FMF because they are a older bmx company than Mongoose.That way its still in a way old.

Re: 1999 Mongoose Californian

Hey nice bike youre got there,
Been looking for another 25th anniversary model Pro Californian,
Looks pretty schmick.
Havent seen many about(only yours).
I got to  mine with paint stripper and stripped the clear coat and gave it a polish.
The forks on mine are GT.
These are some old pics of it,will take some more recent one's when i get the chance.
I will list the parts up with the latest pictures.
