1986 Mongoose FS-1

Another California survivor from the 80's.  Garage-stored its entire life.

Sometimes it really pays to lurk around Craigslist. I picked up this gem in Redwood City about a month ago. It came with the old school Haro number plate w/ original stickers back from the mid-80's - it even came with the original owner's manual. I figure those two things alone were worth the $50 I paid for it! ACS Rotor headset, Pro Class stem, GT lay back seatpost, Trick Top seat, Skyway mags, Lee Chi front and rear brakes. Replaced Trick Top seat with a NOS Viscount Dominator and white donut seat clamp with a Peregrine one.  Also swapped out the white VP-800 pedals with Peregrine platforms.  Not too much of a freestyler, so it's now a racer/freestyle hybrid. *SOLD*

Yeah, dude.  Seriously, this thing is clean.  Even the folks were nice - they were moving up to Sac and had saved their son's bike so that his son could ride it.  Unfortunately, he had 2 girls - I promised them I'd save it for my son (he's only 3) to enjoy it when he gets older.  I would have been estatic about the bike alone - the Haro plate and documentation put it over the top!

Still can't believe this is gone - buyer got a hell of a deal.  $225 shipped.  Does anyone here now own it?  It went with everything - Haro Flo plate and original instruction manual :| :/ :(
