    Picked this one up this evening. Seller has had it since 88 and has carried it around with him from Wisconsin to Arizona to Nevada to Iceland to Texas.

    It's in nice crusty survivor condition.

    Got to love the seat customization.

    Only bummer is the "ACS Z-Rims" logo was wiped off the rear rim by brake rub. :mad:

    My best friend had one of these back in the 80's. He loved that bike. It was a fun ride for sure!.

    Motomags really make a Mongoose, even though Z rims are a lot lighter.
    And nobody wants Motomags so they are practically free these days...

    No way, is that silver paint pen (and with the red outline, I hope)? Totally rad, man.
