Love it, absolutely perfect.  What is the story, did you find it this way or was this a project?  Give us the scoop man!

Was an ebay find from Arizona last winter with a low BIN.   Had it in my crawlspace until April and just got the time to clean it up.

 

It's as found except for the mild polishing of the OG nickel and a repaint of the rusty peeling bars.

That's a beauty ! .....just a little FYI that style bar was called a butterfly shape, not box.

 

The mags are insane.

Not only that but they are the early style Mongoose butterfly bars as well. (More rise and a slightly wider V to the bars and narrower at the bottom.) This style was used up to 1977. the switch to the later style Mongoose bars happend during that year so 77 is kind os a split year. use of the later style bar was in full efect by the1978 model production.

 

Bike on the left has the late bars. the bike on the right has early bars.

It is insane that an original finish bike can look that good after all those years. My 'Goose didn't look that good in '76!  :P

Must have been the dry Arizona climate. 

 

No rust on this frame when I got it. Just some baked on desert dust and a bit of green oxidation that polished away with some mothers.
