Re: Mongoose Builds! Mongoose Questions! Post them here...

Just sharing a little bit of knowledge that I picked up recently.  In the, “Hey~Day”..
..of BMX Products/Mongoose...they were producing/completing “500” F/F’s a day.  All USA built bikes were made in Moorpark/Chatsworth CA.  If your serial number reads anything like this...

K3001119

That means your frame was built in November of 1983...it was the 1,119 frame welded/completed in that month.  Which means frame # K3001120 may have been a Pro Class, Supergoose...etc.

Amazing #’s back then.

Just sharing.

All the best.

~Tom

I have never seen a real Mongoose stainless steel post with no markings at all. Not saying they don’t exist though. Everyone I’ve seen has at least the Top Max height and vertical lines. A while back there were fakes being passed off though.

Both beautiful posts but the old straight posts make for hard riding these days. Couldn’t ride my Supergoose without a layback.

One if them came on a survivor Motomag, and the other came on a survivor Kos Kruiser that I got from original owner.

Re: Mongoose Builds! Mongoose Questions! Post them here...

It’s hard enough to find any original US made Californian...this one is brand new.  Probably one of the originals...I thank my younger self for grabbing this one.

Re: Mongoose Builds! Mongoose Questions! Post them here...

All the US made frames had that mast sticker.

Any idea how many US made frames were made in those years when production had already moved to Merida?
