Re: 1979 Mongoose Motomag

:cool:


I'm looking for the following frames, frame & forks or completes by BMX products:
MotoTrac (nickle or chrome), Racer-X or a Super-X (with the double gussets).
Thanks ;)

Re: 1979 Mongoose Motomag

Haha, I'm sure you catch hell from purists but it looks pretty rad! Love the mix of old, mid, and new!


When I bunnyhop I hear a creak and I don't know if it's my bike or my joints. Oh well.
