Ok guys ,I just got back from the tip shop and heres what I scored today. I have a mongoose frame (78-79 style) with a flattened seat stay (supergoose??) TRX Forks, sealed bottom bracket and what I think are Shimano road racing cranks. OH and it has Redline bars too. The bars are a little newer than the rest. The best part is it was painted silver quite a while ago and is perfect underneath!
Jun 28 2005, 12:54 AM
Oh and lookin around today I found this. This is my best mate, Dean Clarke. This is also the infamous twin downtube Quicksilver frame. Dean and I were teammates for Champion Cycles for 5 years. 80-85. Pic taken from Mr BMX's Retro site [ June 28, 2005, 02:56 AM: Message edited by: Coastvl ]
