Ok I never thought I would ever own one and after years of asking this guy about his bike that has been hanging in his garage for years. You see when I walk in to a shop and see people around my age I always ask " do you have any old BMX stuff sitting around" now 95% of the time I get no leads.
How ever a few years ago I met the owner of this bike and have been asking since "what up with that bike ?" So finally here it is. The frame set came with an 81 mongoose with all of the parts on it from BITD when he raced other then the OG rims " he's diggin for them now "
Any way I am stocked about this I got the JMC registration card never filled out and he is even finding the receipt.
Any way persistence pays off so don't stop the hunt !!!! Lol my way enjoy
The pics are of how I got it all the way to me outing it together last night lolimage.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

The last owner is even going to dig out some old photos of him racing the bike BITD at Waterford for me.


All the parts on the goose were from the JMC he said when he got bigger he was afraid he would bust the frame of the JMC so they went on the goose F/F
