Hey

My name is Mish, living in Northampton UK and I have just joined the site properly.  I have finally bought my dream bike as kid, a Mongoose Californian.  I had a Grand Prix as a kids but this is what I really wanted.

I am not a newbie to bikes and resto... I am n+7, a mix of road, mtbs, inc 2 retro mtbs that I built up 
.
Looking forward to chatting and getting advice on how to tweak my Mongoose to how I want it

Cheers

Thanks!  I've got about 9 different builds going on at the moment but the last one I put my hands on is a 1984 1st gen Haro Master I'm building to replace the last one I had that I sold back about 10 years ago (which I've been regretting ever since, as I sold my 1st gen Sport then too  :idiot2: :idiot2: ).

Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. Miss you loads Dad

Most of them are project bikes that I've had on the back burner anywhere from 2 to over 20 years! I've been downsizing since around 2012 as my first 15 years of collecting got WAAAAY out of control!  None of them are anywhere close to completion.  The closest is the 1st gen Master as I've had parts sitting around waiting to build another for some time. I'll post pics of some of them here soon. Here's what I'm currently working on at any given moment:

1983 Mongoose Californian
1984 1st gen Haro Master
1984 3rd gen Haro Sport
1984 GT Pro Performer
1984 GT Mach One
1984 GJS Freestyler
1985 SE Quadangle Freestyler
1985 MCS Styler
1986 Vector Freeplay
1989 Haro Master

Thanks, mate.  My ADD and the fact of trying to find all the right parts without taking a mortgage out on the house keeps me rotating through builds!  :2funny:

Seems like the best way to play it, especially with todays Bmx market. Grab bits as they pop up which are affordable and eventually you will get them finished. Good luck with the builds  fistblump

Thanks.  In the meantime, here's the Master as it sits now.  Some of the bits are just placeholders until I can source the right parts like the stem, bars, grips, and headset. Labor of love they are!
