FOR SALE:   NOS Old School Mongoose KOS Kruiser...Lower Price posted by: Mark on 4/14/2000 at 4:10:07 PM
Hello,
I have an NOS old school Mongoose Kos Kruiser for sale. It is chromoly in color, and it is mint, NOS. The frame and fork are original Mongoose, and the all of the other parts are quality slightly newer NOS parts (including never used Mongoose items from a few years ago). $300 delivered. I am helping an old bike store by selling off his old inventory. He hooked me up with some great old BMX stuff, so I am returning the favor. Originally, the owner wanted more money, but I told him to lower the price if he wants to move the bike. Here are the parts on the KOS Kruiser: NOS chromoly Mongoose KOS Kruiser f/f (1980), newer NOS Mongoose stem, Mongoose cruiser bars, Mongoose grips, Mongoose chainwheel, bullet proof one piece crank, black ATB pedals, 26 inch rims with Kenda 26 inch tires. This bike is chrome with black trim. It dates from 1980, has all original stickers, and the bike is MINT, never used. It was built up from the original f/f set which cost $240 back in 1980. Again, $300 delivered. For references, look on e-Bay under user name HutchBMXusa (me). I have a lot of feedback, and it is all positive. Also, I can e-mail you the names of some wonderful people I have dealt with on this discussion page. I no longer have access to a digital camera, so I have no pics. If you know what this cruiser looks like, you will receive a mint, NOS beautiful bike. E-mail me if interested.

AGE / VALUE:   Shimano DX crankset in the box. posted by: Geoff on 4/13/2000 at 9:17:55 PM
NOS Early Shimano DX crankset in the box with instructions.

Want to trade for old School pre 1980.
Want Cook Bros., Redline, other high end early stuff.

One more thing. This crank set is missing the left crank arm, and the spindle is slightly bent. Other than that, this crank set is perfect. In all honesty, I was looking for around two hundred dollars for this crank set. I would also be open to trading toward Ross freestyle bikes.

Here is the picture, the post about the bent spindle
and missing arm is bogus.
Please e-mail me directly.

Thanks,

AGE / VALUE:   Mongoose 2x4 cruiser. near mint posted by: Geoff on 4/13/2000 at 9:16:17 PM
Extremely nice old school cruiser
frame and forks for trade. This a super clean Mongoose 24"
2x4 frameset from the very early 80's.
I also have an NOS decal set for it.


Looking to trade for older stuff. Before 1980.
Cook bros.,redline, parts, ?????.







AGE / VALUE:   Old PK Ripper posted by: Geoff on 4/13/2000 at 9:14:21 PM
Thought somebody might wanna trade...

Have an old PK and early Landing Gear forks
for trade. Frame is structurally sound and
fork is in good shape. Frame dropouts have
some gouges from use but no cracks.
Frame was natural finish but has been sprayed.
Frame and forks will need to be repainted.
Would be a cool project.

Looking for cook bros. and old redline.
Other stuff before 1980.

Thanks,

Geoff

have the Genuine Red Line Parts sticker on them. Let me
know if you're interested.

WANTED:   desoto posted by: pat on 4/12/2000 at 5:28:33 AM
Any old school gatherings going down at Desoto TX nationals ???? Also need straight legged GJS fork and old straight legged Robinson fork.{no leading axle} Need many, many rear hubs. The Taiwan made Mongoose in posting earlier sounded like one of the freestyle bikes made in Taiwan so it probably wasn't a good one like a Decade Pro, but I don't collect freestyle.







WANTED:   Redline Flight Cranks posted by: Skitch on 4/11/2000 at 8:02:08 PM
Does anyone have any chrome 175 or 180mm 401 Flight Cranks with a Techmatic sealed BB for sale. They can be in great to mint condition. I can only offer $$$$$.

Thanks







MISC:   What was it? posted by: Joe on 4/11/2000 at 6:19:53 AM
This weekend at the dump I saw a mongoose with a unique frame (if you can call any of this BMX stuff unique!). It had an extra loop which started where the top tube attaches to the seat post and continued parallel to the ground and out over the back wheel for maybe 6". It was painted the same color as the frame and definately a stock setup. The bike was made in Taiwan, so I left it there.

Should I have grabbed it?







AGE / VALUE:   Hutch stuff for sale posted by: Todd on 4/9/2000 at 3:36:42 PM
USA made Hutch expert frame (1/2" shorter than Pro) in white. I took it in trade, was told nos, am not sure if it is. It has been built, but is in excellent condition. There are no stickers on it. I'm not gonna call it nos, BUT it would be the best looking used frame you've ever seen. I also have a pro Hutch fork for it. Originally black. Well the black started to peel, so I removed the rest of the paint down to the chrome underneath. It is brand new, nos. I have original Hutch stickers for it. I left the steerer tube black (with Hutch sticker on it). I also have some nos Hutch bars in chrome. I think they must be from overseas, 'cause the welds are not as nice as the frame and fork. I'm looking to sell it here first, rather than hassle with ebay. I figure it's worth at least $150 for everything. If you agree, then contact me. I'd consider partial trades for 80's race stuff. I am especially looking for a 1" Landing Gear fork, Auburn fork, various ODI signature series grips, STING COMP. FRAME DECALS, GHP pads/jersey/stickers, SE stickers, and a Haro series 2 #plate. Thanks.

Hello,
I have located a couple of NOS Cooks Bros stems. I believe they are silver in color, and they are the double clamp type (like old Mongoose stems). I can get them cheap, and they are NOS. E-mail me if interested.
