  • You should include at least two pictures to help us identify the frame. – mtdp Jun 22 '17 at 15:32

  • Any and all help will be greatly appreciated. I've had this frame since about 1996. – Rusty Jun 22 '17 at 22:19
  • Its a BMX. You need wheels, BB, cranks, chainring, chain, pedals, rear cog, and to be street-legal you need brakes and possibly reflectors depending on your location in the world. – Criggie Jun 23 '17 at 0:43

    Not much point in storing a bike for nearly 20 years if you're not going to ride it. Usual comment: If you got a sweet and loving mongrel bitser dog from the pound, knowing the parents won't change the dog one little bit. – Criggie Jun 23 '17 at 6:59

You can easily identify the maker of this bike thanks to the gusset on the frame, it is a Mongoose.

  • The serial number starts with A, which tells you it was made in January (A : January, B : February, C : March, etc.).
  • Then the second character is a 2, which means it was made in 1982 (last number of the year).

So your bike is a 1982 Mongoose. According to the manufacturing date, it can either be a Supergoose I or II, or a California Special, but I can't really tell with these picture. You would also need to know the frame material to help figuring this out.

  • Great work - Do hang around because BMX identification questions are not uncommon here. – Criggie Jun 23 '17 at 12:44
  • Thanks mtdp's I thought it was a goose I couldn't remember. It's nickel plated. I've had it for many many years . Started to put it together long ago got side tracked by getting a 67 Mustang convertible and restored it. Now my son wants to put the bike together. So again thank you for your help. When we finish the bike I'll post some pics of it . – Rusty Jun 23 '17 at 13:56
