OK, so my buddy Mike has this other bike. It's a Mongoose. He's wondering what year, what model, etc. and also how many millions is it worth (not really)?

This be it, yo!:

It says, "M5EE2410", I think...

85 something, worth not recycling but unless that stem is stamped proclass and it doesnt look like the rims are proclass either I would say parted out maybe 100 total after shipping.....maybe a little more, if the forks are tange

I was kidding about the what's it worth thing.

The rear rim is a Pro Class. I don't think the stem is stamped. Everything looks original to me except maybe the front wheel (not a pro class) and the bars. I should have taken more pictures and more up close.

I think he really just wants to know what year and what model. I too think it's mid-80's.

Oh yeah, forks are Tange.
