AGE / VALUE:   Mongoose Minigoose Question posted by: DC Wilson on 9/9/2005 at 8:24:00 PM
I'm an old roadie rider/collector. To completely date me, old school BMXs came after my youth. Anyway, I'm trying to learn about old school BMXs as my young son has developed an interest. I have an opportunity to buy an old "cosmetically challenged" Mongoose Minigoose complete, original, in good riding condition for $10. The bike is blue on chrome with most badges and bar pads intact. What grade of BMX was the Minigoose? Would it be worth rehabilitating in dollar terms? Are any decals available for these old BMXs? It needs a new "BMX" head tube decal. I've picked up an old Kuwahara with oval tubing, too, but this Minigoose intrigues me more right now. Thanks in advance for any schooling you can share with me.

Okay, so I cracked and bought it. More details on my new old cosmentically challnenged Minigoose.

Wheels: Front--Blue Araya with blue hub.
Back--chrome rear with Bendix brake (replacement?)

Crank: Tioga and Mongoose with spiral swirl chain wheel

Pedals: black plastic, four heart logo, recessed reflectors.

Frame: blue on chrome.

Decals: BMX on head tube, Team Minigoose and All Tubes Chromoly on top tube; "BMX Products the winners choice" and "Bike Factory Custom Designed/Bellvue Lynnwood Olympia" on seat tube;

Fork: chrome, Tange 1200 Champion stickers on both stanchions.

Handlebar/stem: Mini ape hangers with a "v" shaped reinforcement bar; an unimpressive looking single bolt stem.

Seat/stem: stem blue, seat blue.

Any way to find an old blue Araya wheel for the rear wheel? What hub/brake would be appropriate.

Also there's no front brake though it appears to have had one. What kind of fron brake and lever set would be period correct for this Minigoose?

I have a Race Inc cruiser that had been relabled, I believe, by SE Racing as a Mauler with a Landing Gear fork. I actually sold it to a friend's son about 9 years ago, it was never ridden during that time and just got it back! It is an aluminum unpainted frame, vector bars, araya rims with comp 3 tires and is in very good condition. All it needs is a seat and number plate and it is ready to race. Any interest?
