  1. Scarey stuff Steve - stay safe out there ! I'm gonna cheat and pick 2 like you did lol. If I had to pick 2 to save it would be all sentimental based for me - 81 minigoose (first BMX I had as a kid) and 1982 UK spec Supergoose (bike I always wanted as a kid). Hope life returns to normal for you guys soon !
  2. Thanks for the comments guys, I'm glad she's finally finished after having the frame for so many years. She's a welcome addition to my goose / BMX products family
  3. Cleaned up nice. Love the original bike shop sticker - always love it when a frame has one
  4. OK so here is my recently finished 1979 BMX Products manufactured Team Jag. Had the frame for about 10 years and finally got it built now ! Frame is original Nickel and so I went with a mix of nice condition survivor / NOS / NOS shop worn parts etc. Full parts run down: 1979 Team Jag frame & forks in original survivor Nickel (new decals) NOS shop worn Race Inc bars NOS Winner's Circle/ODI "Octopus" grips Restored Shimano Tourney brake set-up Araya 7C gold rims, original shine sides NOS Cheng shin fat/thin C183 tyres Mongoose gold stem Mongoose stamped headset Shimano Tourney cranks NOS MKS BM-2 pedals Leather Kashimax MX saddle NOS Race Inc seatpost mongoose stamped seat clamp NOS Jag pad set And here she is....... I think I like her better without the pads I think but....... The OG pads do look cool as well....... :-)

  7. Thanks for the kind words guys much apprecited.
  8. Been a while but back building again - blew the dust off some long awaited projects and put this one together to kick things back off. I'd always been in love with the 2 Team completes in the 1979/80 mongoose catalogue and did my blue candy full size team back in 2011, so I just had to do the mini in red...... 1979 Team Minigoose frame and Team forks re-candied red Araya 7c re-anodised rims with NOS Shimano casette hubs NOS Shimano Dura Ace cranks NOS MKS BM-1 pedals (hard to find these puppies) NOS Oakley 2 grips Mongoose gold stem Mongoose headset Mongoose seat clamp Minigoose alloy bars re-anodised Survivor alloy seat-post Restored Shimano Tourney brake set with NOS Shimano clips, cables, ferrules and blocks. Restored mongoose kashimax suede Team seat NOS Hwa Fong snakebelly tyres (not the most desireable but they are OG old rubber with the right tread pattern and match the ones on my full size team - goose snakes are well.... yeah) So, then...... Couldn't resist taking a few snaps of her with her big sister......... Red and blue back together as they should be....... Hope you like 'em - I'm really pleased.
  9. Thanks for the pics.......Now I'm even more confused Your bars look to have about an 8" rise ? and just over 26" width....... The GHP advert below has 2 dimensions: Pro: 28" Width, 8" Rise Expert: 27" Width, 7" Rise
  10. Yeah the stickers are definitely new / repop replacements but the evidence is there in the chrome protection that there were some kind of original decals in those spots. Any info glady apprecitaed thanks !
  11. Picked these up a while back - not sure what they are but look a little GT cruiser-ish ? They look like they've been cut inspecting the ends - any thoughts ?
  12. Hi folks, So.... I picked these up and the decals are clearly new replacement ones, but you can see a "protected chrome" outline from the original decal around the STAR BARS decal and pealing back the Star Products decal you can see protected chrome from some original decal agin. These protected areas are of similar size to the replacement ones. They looked a bit short and not very wide to me, however I have since seen a GHP advert (shown below) with "Expert" bars at 27" width and 7" rise which would fit these bars dimensions "if" they'd had a bit off the width - the ends do look a little rough so perhaps they were cut ? Pics of everything below - any help greatly appreciated.........
