I got this bike last year from the scrap pile and now have it finished. I painted it black which is the original color. I cleaned up and re used alot of the original goose parts, even the original tires are there. Just thought I'd share.

That looks great. Are you planning on changing the stem?

Josh that Mongoose motomag came out awesome !

You well deserved to find such an orignal piece for a reasonable amount.

I think everything on it is just perfect ... I'll have to look at the stem upclose but if you ever need a ashtabula stem I'll be hitting up my local swap meet so I'll keep an eye out for one.

Keep building them ... just like you do at a nice steady pace.

I have found the nicest builds usually take the longest to build .... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

Thanks for the compliments guys I appreciate it. I just do the best with what I have and can afford. The stem is the one that was on it when I found it and it looks like it was on it for 30 years. It's an areo mx II, never seen one before. Maybe in the future I will put the ashtabula stem on when Mr Smith can hook me up (IMG:style_emoticons/default/cool.gif)
