Try your luck on the Classic and vintage forum. They're more in to this kind of stuff over there.

We're more ecumenical here on the mechanics forum and help fix without caring about the pedigree..

You going to have to do your homework to find out the info you seek.

Since you are not even sure if its a Mongoose which it may not be unless it as a name plate.

You can start Here to narrow down the manufacturer/brand first.

Based on that number you gave it does not look like a Mongoose at least not a vintage.

Vintage mongoose: Serial #

Photos are often useful for identifying a frame.
