Re: 1983 Mongoose Californian

Hey Shakedown, just guessing here (cuz its not my field) could it be a Mongoose 2/4? The only other 24s were the KOZ and the moosegoose. I think the moose was a 24, it coulda been a 26, dunno.

Re: 1983 Mongoose Californian

I just got one of these. I traded a 2005 Haro F5 that I built. My friends said I was nuts, but I knew what I was doing. The only thing missing was the adjustment screw on the right brake lever. I'll have pics of mine on here soon.       PEACE

Re: 1983 Mongoose Californian

There used to be a bike shop in my home town, it closed about 15 yrs ago. The bike I just got still has a sticker from "JIM's Bike Shop", how cool is that. Plus 23 year old brake cables and they still work.
