I think three pc cranks were correct for team gooses I have a red anodized set. Pm me.if interested. Not cheap
Agree, correct on the complete bike, but Mongoose Team frames were also available as frame only purchase which accepted one piece cranks as well. Three piece were out of my price range as a kid!

One of the prettiest vintage BMX I have ever seen. Funny thing is that when I opened the thread I was the first picture and I was like , what??? Carbon??? Then I realized this is a sticker that just looks like carbon a bit =)
Good catch.

That is a sweet Red Team. You aren't based in Colorado are you? I tried to buy a super nice Red frame once on ebay & the guy who beat me on bidding was in Colorado. Red Team always eluded me but I did have a complete NOS blue as well as several other blue one.
Great bike! Be careful with that finish, it will come off walking past it too fast.

Thank you! Not Colorado, but North Carolina. Yep, the finish is not great, still a lot of color left though.

Here is my old motomag from 79. It sat rusty for twenty years. My ten year old helped after we got it powder coated. Very pleased with the results is very close to how I had it setup.

Hooray, you did it! The bike turned out great. Glad the decal kits are still available. Looks like a happy boy too. Congrats.

You say its not cheap? How much is not cheap? Is it for sale

QUOTE=pedal_junky;307889]Tried to duplicate the build from when I was a kid. (Just like many of you I would guess) After locating the correct frame and fork, the build began.

I think you are talking about the 3 piece crank that rearfacingdropout offered me. But to clarify, my Goose is not for sale.
