Pay attention kids. No need to replace the decals when you only need to clean t. Mongoose project

Recommended Posts

So a few months ago I picked 2-79-80 Mongoose Motomags. One was black and the other is nickle I sold the black one at the Midwest show and kept the nickle one for the wife but it was in need of a good cleaning s the nickle was green. So I took it apart and sprayed all the parts down with pb blaster and put them in a box for a few weeks to soak. Well a week or so ago I got to it. Using one pack of OOOO steel wool and some mother’s mag Polish and a razor(rust on forks) and well I ditched the CNC spokes and tossed on a set of motos I had and here she is. And the wife loves it. 8AD734A7-62A9-4715-8C9C-941926FD7B14.jpegDC3AF3CD-562E-4CD9-B4EA-EF21878E6CD1.jpegC9593A86-288C-4638-8503-8928615E820E.jpegD7538540-29B9-487F-95F2-96185690B3CE.jpeg888093AD-E291-4440-A585-A70B9A15C346.jpeg339C844C-E8E8-4719-A335-3DCCC68B5B14.jpeg3270E181-F470-4180-B0B0-4A60BF1CF799.jpeg6C5D1640-7DE0-4783-85CF-4FC126AA15F6.jpeg8E9DDCB1-FC75-4844-8E13-DAF7D94049CD.jpeg

My point is you don’t need to remove stickers to still have a nice looking bike. (But most of you know this already) A97986F2-9BAD-4959-8346-EB7BDD3A35E4.jpegB6AC0317-6E17-4B9D-8DDE-498B6F733E3D.jpeg716961B9-F71B-4B00-B928-8D9E14171BE6.jpeg

Really cool before and after images and work to get to the after images, which is first class.

 

A few details that make it extra nice: The original bike shop sticker, how nice the crank and sprocket look and of course the nickle on the frame.

 

It is only original once.

I know a guy who can polish up the ends of those scuffed up pedals to a high shine. He might even be able to save a remnant of the mongoose stamp.

I’m good with that. Ran a brass brush over them and happy with it.

No really. He'd make it reflect like a mirror. Just like when it was new!
