I was wondering if anyone could tell me how parts have changed on bmx bikes since the time that bmx started to present. I am mainly interested in flatland but other kinds of bmx is fine. Also, does anybody know of any good "old school" bmx sites that give info about bike parts?

General made a frame called the R.L. Osborn Pro. It's probably a General. The Osborn Pro was all 4130 cromo.

   RE:RE:AGE / VALUE:   Who made this Frame posted by harry on 4/16/2002 at 3:56:06 AM
The Osborn Pro was produced by General Bicycle. Named and designed by RL Osborn, paid rider for General. Frame graphics by Heidi Wisdom, friend of RL. 4130 crmly. I was co founder of General Bicycle and
Moped from 1981-1990, an designed most of the bikes.

FOR SALE:   mongoose-"two four" posted by: eric on 2/19/2002 at 6:55:18 AM
Hey people, I have been riding 24" bmx for about twenty years now and over the years have acquired two exact sets of frame and forks that I would consider of collector quality .They are called" Mongoose two four" .Does anyone out there know of this model?I believe they are pretty rare and of high quality.Anyone have any info on this bike or interested in purchasing for a good price?

   RE:FOR SALE:   mongoose- posted by Troy Palmer on 2/19/2002 at 8:55:26 PM
I would be interested in one of the Mongoose 2/4 frame and fork sets you have. How much do you want for it? What condition is the chrome/Nickel and decals? Can you please send a photo?

FOR SALE:   Mongoose Pro Class posted by: C. King on 2/15/2002 at 5:25:15 PM
I have a first edition Mongoose Pro Class with all original parts. I had to have the frame warrantied about 2 months after I bought it and recieved a team frame to replace it, so its actually better than what could be bought at your local shop at the time. The bike was originally black chrome but has since been painted white. For a bike from the early eighties it is in overall good condition. My son still actually rides it every now and then. I'm looking to trade it for a set of Flight or Profile SS cranks, and maybe a couple of 24" mags or rims. I'm building a cruiser and need good parts. If you have anything you may want to trade let me know.

What do Tough Neck stems look like?
Did they used to be on old Mongoose?

   RE:AGE / VALUE:    posted by Wings on 2/23/2002 at 5:28:57 AM
I will try this: Can anyone describe Tuff Neck BMX quil hadlebar stems? Did they have two raised platforms with space in between and each platform had two bolts to secure the handlebar? l have seen this on MONGOOSE.
Or is Tuff Neck another style?

   RE:AGE / VALUE: posted by Alan on 4/7/2002 at 12:39:02 PM
Tuff Neck were an aftermarket stem that had 4 8mm allen head
bolts which I think were 5/16 Dia the top piece of the clamp
was one piece.I regarded these as one of the strongest on the
Australian market in the early 80/s.Would like to purchase
if you come by any,
rebuilding Team Mongoose to my old specs
