Title: menace by name...
Post by: Smidsy on March 09, 2019, 09:04 PM
Picked up a ratty 25th anniversary mongoose menace and thought i would play with it a bit. Was lime green but i have sprayed it white and put some old school team decals on. Just a bit of fun. Will use it when caravanning. [attachment=1]

Forks, bars, stem, chainring and cranks will all be the og menace stuff. Chrome mostly.

Have some green mags to go on it with all black tyres.

Then blue AME grips, blue Kashi seat and blue chain.

Sounds awful but its to go with this.

A word of warning on those mags, if they're not OGKs and are the cheapo ones off the bay, they have a bad tendency to shatter or snap extremely easily.

Thanks.

Absolutely the 1980 Motomag is the best of my bikes.

This menace is just a mode of transport that is essentially disposable as it will be used and abused in all weathers and transported around on a bike rack mounted to the a frame of my caravan.

3rd ride and the rear wheel hub/bearings just collapsed!!!.  :10_2_12:

Looks like the faded green Skyway Tuffs will have to go on for now.
