1987 Mongoose Decade

A bike I had built long before I was aware of the Museum

In 2013 my family and I had went to a flea market and had set up to sell some of our own items and there this bike was looking like it just crawled out of a junk yard the lady who had it across from us wanted $50 all day but the bike looked so bad nobody wanted it once the day was almost over I offered $40 and she took it this here was my first restore needless to say I was very proud of it even though it had mix and match parts here and there I even fabricated my own pegs from scratch, I didn't know or care at the time what was what, was just happy to bring back a bike like that from that era, these photos were the end result I will try to find the photos of what it looked like before I got my hands on it, after enjoying it for over a year I had sold it to a friend of mine who loved it but as I did, he sold it to a friend of his and that person had moved from Mass. to California and brought the bike with him, and yes I am searching for this particular one I had painted it that greenish color in a body shop but the finish came out in a really cool crinkle look, and yes I was able to peel off each decal without damaging a single one and re installed without issue that was one of the coolest parts
