And yesterday i won on ebay.de with bidding a retro syncros crankset in the color polished alloy(NOS) for the Amplifier.
From the State`s are coming White Industries Wheelset.
And i got allready NOS shimano XTR M900,M901 and M910
And the tire`s i bought are the Tioga Kevlar Psycho-K skinwall

So it will be a nice looking upgraded Mongoose Amplifier over a couple weeks :D

This is the first Amplifier, 1993.
The 1994 had the same decals as the black and silver one. (red outlines, metalic white letters)
Edit: Also stick a propper amp fork on it :)

But i like the Manitou answer three fork and maybe if i got more money saved,than maybe i will buy me a amp fork but one with the mongoose decall`s on it.

Are you shore that this mongoose amp frame is from 1993,i thought from 1994.

Thit some one have a brochure from the mongoose from 1993 or 1994?
