1978 Team Mongoose

This is a very nice 78 Mongoose Team in candy blue. The frame and fork were purchased as is. The forks are chrome but I think it looks cool. Nos Araya 7x rims w/ Suzue hubs, Nos Tuf Neck bars, Nos Dia-compe 890's w/lever, Nos KKT pedals, sealed bottom bracket and used Shimano Dura Ace cranks, Blue Mongoose seat post and clamp!   I built this for my son (He loves it!) and it matches my Supergoose. Serial # CB8 64382 T

Love the bike even though its not a replica. What kind of Seude seat is that?? It looks good.
the color combo is perfect, I bet your son turns heads when rides it.

Re: 1978 Team Mongoose

You really did a nice job getting this mongoose back to original.  I am just now researching how to restore my old mongoose.  It is identical color and my son is getting to the riding age.  I wish I could find a place to repaint it.  Any ideas?  It brings back serious memories.  I once rode my mongoose to jr high and some knuckleheads stole the seat my tires, my handlebars.  From that point on I rode to school with like 5 chains and took the seat off in my locker.  THat is one sought after BMX.  Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

A "Squonk" is like a Mongoose only much harder to find...

Re: 1978 Team Mongoose

Yes, Chip did the powder coating on two of the bikes.  The blue is a blue translucent powder coat over nickel and the 1981 red team is the same.  The bikes look amazing in person and the pictures do not show the shine.  The decals/stickers can be found on e-bay.  Let me know if you need any help.
