I had previously completed complete rebuilds on a few roadies, but seeing as how I am really an off road guy these days, I wanted to find an old mtb to restore.
This Amp/Mongoose showed up in the local classifieds last fall and I grabbed it quick. Frame and fork, never built, in storage for the last 20+ years.
Will be a bit before I locate all the necessary bits, but its slowly coming together.
I will try and document the build as it progresses.
93’ Mongoose Amplifier w/ Amp B1 Fork
Ritchey logic headset
Ritchey OCR and Rock pro rims on Ritchey hubs
Flite ti gel saddle
Control tech cantis
Control tech 130 5° stem
Xtr m900 drive train
Panaracer Smoke and Dart

Still looking for some appropriate bars, having a hard time finding 25.4’s in anything over 580mm

Lol - that’s what great a out this place, I’m sitting on the fence about the bold electric blue and keen to see this built and see which way I go

Lovely frame and forks BTW and cranks, brakes etc are spot on


Keep the build updates flowing :D

The blue might clash with the red outline of the decals... But it's looking good anyway, lots of polishing been done there!
