I like the look of the old Mongoose bikes with the chain/seat stays made from one piece of tubing bent round at the dropout.

Greets everyone, I'm Jussa (Justin) been lurking over on the MTB side of the forum for some time now, just getting the bug for BMX's yes at 43 years young too :D

My cycling background heralds from working in a local cycle shop back in the 80's (Cutmoore Cycles, Rushden, Northants) before joining HM Flying club back in 1988. Still in uniform and currently increasing my fleet of retro MTB's. Previous BMX's owned range from Mongoose Supergoose, DP Firebird Freestyler, Redline, Falcon Pro to name but a few, usual story at 16/17 years old, interests changed and sold them on for beer money and to entertain the ladies ;) and to fund my then Motorbike/Scooter passion. Just sourced my lad a 2012 Mongoose Logo elcheapo which was good fun to tinker with albeit very low slung compared to the old geometry of BMX's BITD, just touched base with Bendycat and soon to be the owner of a nice piece of chrome :D I am really excited about this too. and looking forward to getting involved in this side of the forum :)
