’78 Mongoose Motomag on the Bench

Mongoose Motomag


This is going to be the first of many builds I will featuring on this blog. I found a not in perfect condition 78-79 Mongoose which had its flaws; removed stock stickers, aftermarket headset and the big one, a drilled to lower gusset! By looking at the hole, it appears to be have done bike shop to accommodate a kickstand (or someone wanted to make his ‘goose look like a Cook Bros) It’s hard to say.

Most builders would probably pass this one by, I kind of like the story. There is no reason to trash it because it has ben tampered with or wrecked. That fact is, it is a survivor! Great bones with a twist is much more interesting.

I have been scouring the internet and my contacts to resource the parts I need to start putting this together.
