New ones with 'SN' starting however can have 'SN' (Serial No) 'MNG' (factory) 00(numbers, usually year) A (letter, usually corresponding to the month) then 5-6 frame numbers, wrapped around the BB.

So if it reads SNMNG09D20100, then it's a Pacific Mongoose made by Pacific (rather than for Walmart, etc) in April 2009. It's possible however that it could have been sold as a GT or as a Wethepeople, both other brands of Pacific cycle that use some of the same frames.

Okay, so that looks like Mongoose, made in October(J) 2011 - so probably for the 2012 model range by that stage. But it does look genuine.

Pacific/Mongoose website might still have it, it's not that old after all.
Alternatively, they won't have pics, but Bikepedia.com should have specs for it.

Try Chainreactioncycles.com - they have a good selection of BMX spares & parts - at least for an idea of what you're looking for. BMX's aren't my speciality tbh, but I think you need a freehub spacer set.
An MTB single-speed conversion kit is like this http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/uc/e ... -prod17774
but it's likely you need a driver which fits into the hub like a freehub does, but is BMX single-speed specific http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/uc/e ... prod136185, but I'm about at the limit of my BMX knowledge, as I say!
