Got this off RAFBikes. I used to drool over one exactly the same in a mag Bitd.

Anyway have just started putting it together, most of the parts have come off my '97 Hahanna the frame of which i sold on here to fund this.

It will be a Green & Gold theme bar the yellow hubs.

I'm not sure what year it is, maybe '95 or '96 if anyone can help with info that would be cool. Bikepedia only lists them as coming in black & has no pics.

Don't know much about Mongoose at all. I bet the twin down tubes look cool. Although they would have to be quite small :?:

It looks really good apart from the forks. For some reason the colour just doesn't quite work for me. If they are particularly good forks could you get them recoloured to match something? Either green or yellow I'm thinking
