1984 Mongoose Californian

***** sold to a fellow museum member on 5-16-2011*******
 
 
Picked this up for under $100.00 bucks with acs z mags, sold the z mags and added some nos sumo 7x with kt looseball hubs & shimano freewheel.  The frame/fork was rusty so it got a bath and used chrome polish and wax to bring this goose back to life,  I used some repop decals from bmx products.  The headset is stock, cranks and bottom bracket were totally wasted and replaced with 170mm Mongoose stamped cranks with a Odyssey bottom bracket .   The rusty Takagi spider was powdered "baja yellow" along with the bottom half of the og sr stem and a odyssey style seatclamp.   i used some Shimano Tourneys front &rear with  Dia Compe style levers & yellow Sinz brake cables .   The Porkchop Bmx tires,yellow Wellgo pedals,AME grips, and a set of nos Flite pads with yellow foam top it off.
