1979 mongoose team minigoose [FINISHED]

Recommended Posts

Been a while but back building again - blew the dust off some long awaited projects and put this one together to kick things back off.

I'd always been in love with the 2 Team completes in the 1979/80 mongoose catalogue and did my blue candy full size team back in 2011, so I just had to do the mini in red......


1979 Team Minigoose frame and Team forks re-candied red
Araya 7c re-anodised rims with NOS Shimano casette hubs 
NOS Shimano Dura Ace cranks
NOS MKS BM-1 pedals (hard to find these puppies)
NOS Oakley 2 grips
Mongoose gold stem
Mongoose headset
Mongoose seat clamp
Minigoose alloy bars re-anodised
Survivor alloy seat-post
Restored Shimano Tourney brake set with NOS Shimano clips, cables, ferrules and blocks.
Restored mongoose kashimax suede Team seat
NOS Hwa Fong snakebelly tyres (not the most desireable but they are OG old rubber with the right tread pattern and match the ones on my full size team - goose snakes are well.... yeah)

Oh my God that is just straight ridiculous!  Love it!!  Not to be an asshole but the only thing I could think of changing would be the grips to black...
