1981 Mongoose Motomag

When stranger things happen.....

Hi all,

Thought I'd share some photos of my '81 motomag.
The frame and forks were in great shape when I got them,  but suffered from possibly the worst powder coat job I've seen.  I had it stripped and re-powdered "signal red", and applied fresh decals.
To the wheels..... I bought this set of "stranger things" alloys from a guy in the US, but thought they might look a bit too garish on a red bike.  Still,  I tried them out,  and after having recovered from the burned retina I actually quite like it.  Love it or hate it,  you simply can't overlook it!
I've ordered a set of yellow pads and will add some more photos when I have them.  Might be a bit of yellow overload though,  so we'll see.
I'd love to hear your thoughts.
