    Mongoose, I am about 90% sure. Mid to late 1970's

    bmx

    thats an old mongoose motomag from what looks like the early 80's. I've got one that's from 78 I am working on right now. Cool bike, with some good oldschool components, where did you get it? Also what is the serial number?
    Bikes are cool, even the dumb ones.

    Yeah, that's a later Mongoose. The MX seat, v-bars, and fluted seatpost are similar to what I rode about 1982. I don't recall what cranks those are, (Takagi?) but they sucked. The grips appear to be Grab-On, and the tires are possibly Snake Belly. Dia Compe brakes? Araya rims? The earlier frames didn't have a bridge for a handbrake, they were strictly coaster.

    Hey look, here's one in action, around 1981! Note the v-bar and still rockin' the moto mags. An easy 40+ pound bike.
