Is this? It's set up super old school with Tuff I's and Ashatbula forks...I've never seen a 'Goose of that era with no gusset and a looptail (barring DeCoster and Blue Max loops). Nor have I heard of an old school goose with a head badge.

Was this an English-only bike? Perhaps by Ammaco?

That one aint no goose thats for sure.
That earlier one is an 83-4 model I think. Same design as a californian and pro-class with different tubes I think. I'm sure someone here will know for sure.

M1 is the exact same tri-moly looptail frame as any Californian or Expert, just with entry level components. This one looks to be an `86 if those are original decals.

The tuffs on that one look like they were painted.

I have an M1 in blue and the tubes are just alittle larger than those on my supergoose. The parts are not the best unsealed bearings but it does have chrome Proclass rims The bars are definately Mongoose bars and the decals along with pads are not consistent with the style of lettering from the mid to late 80's.

I do not have much to contribute to this thread for info but know I bought mine off ebay near mint for 36 dollars which was worth the price of the mongoose black seat with white lettering and silver buttons and the rims.

Outfront, I would measure your tubes again. Top & downtubes should be 1 1/8", and rear triangle should be 5/8" for an `83 to `87 looptail Mongoose M1, Expert, Californian, and most Supergeese. If your M1 tubes are larger diameter, than your Supergoose, something's not right with one of them.

I think the largest diameter tubes were on the Pro Class. like 1/8 inch bigger than the Supergoose.

Pro Class top tube is 1 1/4" and rear triangle is 3/4". Some Supergeese have these as well.
