  1. So a wile back I helped out a good friend with a few bucks for a legal issue. And he pawned his 81 blue goose with me and I told him he had a year to buy it back and he did how ever wile in alcohol counseling his 50 year old counselor had sold him the black one for real cheap. He used it towards payment. The cherry was picked up from another friend. Now I tore down the black one and cleaned everything however the red one looked to never been taken apart so all I did was wipe it down. NEVER touched a bolt other then moving the bars forward a bit. I posted it on FB and had some fool try to tell me how much of a fool I was not taking it apart. However there was no need every thing on the bike is perfect down to the grease in every cup.
  2. I'm not 100% sure of the year (1981 or 82...anyone know for sure when Denny signed with Skyway?) but these are from a trade show. Probably in Arizona, maybe Cali. Our shop (GH BMX) traveled out of Austin for the show and to race a few tracks out west. That JMC display? Sick The Goose set up? Sick Who knew there were black Bottemas??? Maybe someone on here will know the exact show and location. Fun little time capsule.
  3. Looked up this morning and saw these cool things. original red Motomag II's.

  5. It's been a long time since this bike was this nice. It's pretty close to how I bought it from the pawn shop in the 90's. Had to replace the Tuffs and the Kos bars. It got an upgrade with the Knarlier Knobbys and the black Elina seat, but otherwise it's pretty close to how it came plus stickers and pads. Detail pics to come. I took the pic today at the vintage bmx show at the ABA Grand Nationals in Tulsa, OK.
  6. When I lived in Melbourne I was reasonably close to Waza so I was able to enjoy a personal BMX show each time I went there and learned a lot about BMXs and Mongooses in particular. Now I'm based in South Florida and live close to the other partner in VintageMongoose.com, namely Rick. This is where I get my BMX fix from these days and yesterday I spent some time there taking pictures as he is preparing to thin the herd by selling some. This is an early 1975 Mongoose with Matthews Girder forks, Femco wheels and a few Schwinn bits here and there. His collection is not only Mongooses or BMXs and includes (for the time being) a couple of all original 1975 Schwinn Scramblers. One regular and one mini. These have indications of use with a few marks here and there, however, the condition of the paint etc is amazing. The boys that had these must have been a bit anal about cleaning from a very early age or very strict parents!
  7. Just started scanning some of Russ Okawa's archive of negatives i have. Thought you guys might like to see more of the mongoose factory This would be early 1982.
