    A friend emailed me this week and asked if I was interested in a bike he picked up. We met up this evening to do a little horse tradin'. :D

    He had picked this bike up at a swap meet this past weekend and he isn't into the Mongoose stuff so I traded him for a bike I had for it.

    Not totally sure what my plans are for it, but it will get a cleaning first. Not diggin' the stem so that will be swapped out with a Pro Class stem eventually.

    I think it is a Hutch stem, but I know squat about them...other than the fact that I don't like them. :lol:

    I would be shocked if DoubleNickle has not pmed you about the stem yet. Great pick up. What makes this different the the TwoFour?

    Sweetness. Man the BMX gods are loving you lately. I am feeling more and more BMX . Even trying to build a little pump-track in my yard. There is a 87 or 88 Mongoose Stylist for sale near me I am being tortured by. It was only made for 2 years or less, but there is so little info out there on them I am not sure if it is worth the $300 asking price? But it is missing the original mags, and has at a minimum, a swapped seatpost.

    I am more interested in the quality of it rather than the scarcity. I actually want to ride the thing! But for $300 we are getting near Skyway Streatbeat territory on a good day.

    Cool find. I jsut picked up an early supergoose yesterday that had a Hutch western H stem on it. Hutch stems must have been the stem to have back then. I then saw that it is worth almost more then the supergoose so that made me feel better about the bike not being all orignal. :D Matt

    Made a few changes...still some work to do though. The chrome is shot. Contemplating having this F/F set powder coated.

    Okay...think I got this one dialed in like I want it now...rides smooth as buttah.

    Seriously thinking about having Jacob at Ideal Coatings giving this F/F the treatment in light blue. Repop decals are available too. :D

    Awesome bike. If you're taking votes, please don't powder it, it's great the way it is. 8)

    I've gone back and forth with the idea.

    The chrome is really trashed on this F/F. Lots of abuse over the years.

    It's definitely a RRBMX. :lol:
