What was the top tube length on a 79 Mongoose?

I found my bike from elementary school at my parents house and am debating restoring it... if I think I can fit on it.

Thanks,
Jay

I just bought one today, I ll measure it. But 18.5 sounds right. All of my old school frames are about the same size as my 10 year olds race bikes.

Absolutely. I'm about 6' 1" and I ride mine to work even.
