Ever find a freebee that you know you will use "someday"? Well these followed me home from the motorcycle shop's take off pile. Now to find a few stingrays to cut up. :mrgreen:

I still have a pair of Harley whitewalls that I was planning for a chopper trike build someday.
 
Hmmm a trike... They did have a third whitewall there but these were the best two, maybe I should go back and get it.... :idea: :mrgreen:

What bike rims will those fit?
OCC stingray 20 x 4 1/4 rear. Have you seen Kingfish's Fugsley? He did the same thing. just without the whitewalls.

A buddy of mine who lives in an apartment just told me about this little gem, belonged to his neighbor who moved out and left it behind so he asked if I wanted it. I had no idea Mongoose made a bike with a front disk brake!?! :shock: Needs a back rim but otherwise in decent shape. And it's aluminum so I might have a new trail bike.

That needs a coaster-brake!
I don't think the chain would allow for articulation of the rear suspention if it had a coaster brake. I think I have a 7 speed rear mountain bike rim laying around so I'll probably fix it the way it was.

Or the fork and wheel might go on my '53 Schwinn Klunker. :idea: :?

Now you are talkin! Is that goose fork a 1" threaded????
 
Mongoose has made some decent bikes in the past, not sure if that is one of them or not, but it could be. I had a Mongoose Hilltopper that was a nice bike, not a Walgoose.

They sell Mongoose outside of Walmart? Are they a bike shop bikes or just a different retailer?

They used to, I don't know if they do anymore or not, but there are definitely two levels of Mongoose bikes out there. Back in the day, Mongoose used to be a well respected name in BMX, which I think helps Walmart peddle them today. Less informed people the same age as me remember wanting a Mongoose back when they were in middle school. All the good names are being bought up and put on cheap bikes.
 
Yeah and that's really disappointing, I remember my old Mongoose Expert and Californian. That was back when Mongoose was good...before everything got sold to China. :roll: They still make some cool parts to chop off and re-purpose though. :mrgreen:
 
Just got off the phone with a guy who's got 4 bikes for $X DELIVERED! He said one is a 24" Huffy Super Thunder! A Haro, and two kids bikes. Pics to come. Hoping I can flip these for some fast cash.
 
Re: 4 bikes for $40

Ok lets start with the veggies, a Tonka kids bike and a speed racer, nothing to go crazy over.



Next up is the one that will be sold to pay for the lot. Haro BMX bike with 3 piece crank.





And the goods! 24" Huffy Super Thunder original, unmolested, and barn fresh! WITH all the pads!



 
Re: 4 bikes for $40

After a little cleaning the Super Thunder Pro 24 is looking good!
