1982 Supergoose [FINISHED]

Recommended Posts

Right then...........

 

Latest of my geese........

 

Had this on the go for over 2 years now !

 

I remember back in June 2008 a friend sent me a scan of the 1982 UK advert from UK magazine BMX action bike. Since then I've been slowly getting all the right bits in nice enough condition to go on the build. It hasn't been easy !

 

The one thing I had t let go from the original spec was the mongoose snakebellies - never seen a mint set in red in the 2 years of looking and the last NOS set in blue that I watched went on ebay for something like $600+ !!!

 

So I went for union snakebellies instead.

 

Other than that she's exact, with some hard to find parts like the mongoose seat, 1st gen renthal post and NOS original mongoose grips.

 

The frame is in very nice condition - original chrome AND original decals.

 

Full Spec:

 

1982 supergoose frame & forks (original chrome and decals)

mongoose stamped stainless steel bars

mongoose golds stem (with correct 2nd gen blocks)

NOS original 7/8" stamped mongoose grips (fresh out the box !)

mongoose stamped headset & BB

mongoose stamped seat clamp & reflector

araya 7x

union snakebelly tyres

genuine mongoose stamped seat (made by viscount)

1st gen renthal straight seatpost with original 1st gen survivor decal

mongoose stamped 175mm crank (original chrome)

mongoose stamped spider

NOS skyway tuff pedals (original cage finish unpolished)

Dia Compe Prebent levers and Dia Compe 890/1020 calipers

Genuine original mongoose vinyl padset.

 

 

So here's the advert........

Well, it kinda looks like it but there's no grass in the ad. Very nice build and it looks spot-on. :OSThumbsUpPeace[1]:

Love Supergooses (supergeese). Thats really cool, nice one.

 

I like the way the bike stands up on its own as if by magic!
