79' Mongoose

Recommended Posts

Picked this up today locally fo a couple bills. It has a motomag serial # but it has the flat chain stay on the drive side and looks like it was team gooose blue at one time. Any info on this set-up? Pretty sure its not OG parts but could be wrong.

Looks to me like an early team frame before the "T" stamping

 

My best guess is it was a Bike Store special - as in the original owner chose a frame and all the parts to go on it from the store rather than buying a complete.

 

Possibly....

 

 

Fantastic pickup all the same - great to see!!

What is the date code and serial number? Could just be a factory screw up, the guy welding it may have grabbed the wrong BB when he put it together, or the wrong seat stay, the weight of the frame will determine if it is a true Team or not. Some of the early ones without the "T" also had a brake tab, but they didn't have the flat seat stay.

Nice score! Always liked a frame with a bit of mystery!

When you say you are gonna build it, are you eliminating parts and starting over?? If so Id be interested in talking about the bars, forks and pedals. LMK.

Yeah but I'm going to keep all the parts for another 70's build. Plus the peadals are mis-matched and the left pedal was a POS.
