That brand dates back to the vintage era of mountain bikes that included Fisher, Diamond Back, Stumpjumper that I think of as being before frame shocks and even fork shocks--early 80s.

Old mountain bikes usually aren't worth much, probably 50-100 bucks at most even if it's in great condition. If it has any good parts on it you are probably better off stripping it.

He said BMX, not mountain bike.

I don’t keep track of BMX prices, but if it’s a 1970s or early ‘80s American-made Mongoose BMX, it has some value.

All the early early Mongoose BMX bikes I've seen have the date right on the frame. I think it's on the seatube on a sticker if I recall.
