hey steve, could it be a "mototrac"? i have and still ride mine. i got it new when i was 12 and i'm 34 now, so that could help you date it back to 1983 if it's the same bike. looks just like a mongoose but has at "T" near the headset?

Actually MOTOTRACs were made by BMX Products.They are similar to a Mongoose but have looptail dropouts and solid front gussetts with T's stamped in them.

If you check the BB shell on your frame the serial # gives away when it was made.There should be 2 rows of digits and the top one will tell you when the frame was made.The first nmeral is the year.IE 0=1980,9=1979 and so on.The serial # usually looks like this:


In my example this would be a 1979 frame.If the serial # starts with a T you have a full chromo frame (Team mongoose,Supergoose) and if there is no T it is only half chromo (Mongoose).

Good luck!
