I never noticed before, that car is actually in BMX products corporate colors.
The mongoose character is not exact, but it's awfully close.
That's not my supergoose, mine was very similar, but had been a nickel plated "team" model in red epoxy, and had the epoxy stripped off.
I only raced as a "sanctioned" rider the one season, but managed to get a state ranking.
Couldn't afford to go to the nationals, or even the finals, but was fun to have the number plate.
I agree about the GT seat tube, it's really too high for me. I should have looked around longer for a shorter one, they made them ,but hard to find.
Most of my height is in my spine (?). Maybe I need a 24"?
I sure do miss "throwin' them around". Not as easy to do with a 26".
Not a lot of dry creek beds in FL, either.
Seems like there's one 5 min in any direction up in OH.
I once borrowed a friends PK ripper, and torqued the top tube(s) so bad that the head tube and seat post tube were no longer parallel
boy was he pissed.
Remember "Roger DeCoster"s? - almost a Mongoose, but only front triangle cr-mo.
Broke one of those too- seperated rear triangle from bottom bracket.
