Grips say it’s a Mongoose. Crank says Tourney Tuf-neck USA. Only other markings I see are ‘112 83’ and ‘WALD 20’. Found it in the rafters of the garage I just bought. TIA!

  • Why do you want to know this?

  • Because I want to know if it’s worth trying to save, or if it belongs in the scrap pile?

    Depends on how much you want to spend restoring it. I don't think there's any monetary value however

Here are four things about your frame that make it distinctive.

  1. The rear dropout is horizontal rather than the track type as most double diamond BMX bikes have
  2. The seat stay bend connecting to the dropout. enter image description here
  3. There seems to be a brace at the seat tube/top tube/seat stay junction. Not sure what that is but it is unusual.

  4. The gusset design, while similar to other BMX bikes it is unique in the details

I've done some searching but have not found a match yet. One of the best references is bmxmuseum.com.
Maybe these observations will help you find a match.

There is a Chainring tuf necks cranks 3 piece sugino tourney ano blue big, looks to have either redline or race Inc v bars big and a cheap Troxell vintage seat. (Everything described except the seat are really expensive parts.) Frame throws me, it looks like parts could be copied from a old vintage mongoose looptail. Wheels look steel with coaster brake but look for stamp near valve stem hole. I actually have a good set of ukai steel wheels (FE) blue off s very early goose with a bendix coaster.

    What's with the "$$$" and "$$$$;" are you trying to indicate "pricey" or "expensive?" You could improve this post by writing more clearly.
