Since the weather has gotten nice and warm around here my kids have been biking alot. My two boys have outgrown their BMX bike's and have been fighting with each other over who gets to ride mom's bike. So I hit Craigslist and searched for used bikes, didn't want to get some department store POS for them. Found a Raleigh MT 400 for my oldest and a Mongoose Hilltopper for my youngest son. I found the Mongoose in a package deal, I had to buy both bikes to get it. Here she is. I couldn't pass it up, she's a 18.5", a tad bit too big but oh well.
She needs a new rear shifter, the other one is broke but other than that she's in good shape. She's been used thats for sure. I'll probably set her up for commuting to the office.

wow--i had that exact same year/ model tho a size smaller--hammered it and loved riding it--those DB tange tubesets of the mid 90's (or in the iboc's case, "custom drawn" ) were like the bread and butter cromo frame used by alot of companies, but i think they were a good combination of weight, durability, and affordability. i put some good dents in mine but it never failed me---hope you enjoy yours
