I agree.. i would say dont fake it, build it for what it is.. A retro so use mostly new school / style parts.

Yeh i agree , all my Mongoose`s are era correct and i was going to use this one as a rider , then i started putting some really nice parts on it and then i saw the frame in person which is flawless and i thought , maybe i wont ride it , then i said stuff it ill ride it .
I like the retro style but new school doesnt really do it for me , i like all the re-releases but overall i don`t think I`ve got the interest in them .
Im ordering a Ruf Neck too i like the retro look and don`t think ill feel as bad as burning around on it as a complete one of my old schools.
Ill see how it turns out. I really appreciate the talk and advice Im finding a whole new world of sizes , threadless , and so forth burhh , learning , just don`t want to buy 3 headsets , three cranks and so forth before i get the right one as i initially did with Old School Stuff

I personally wouldn't put any 'old' bits on it such as the wheels.

It's retro not old school.

I was born in 88 too.

I just wouldn't put genuine old school bits on, I'd put a mix of modern bits on with some retro/new bits.

Retro bits as in the ruff neck stem.

I'd put
Chrome sun envy rims
Profile mini hubs
Redline cranks
S&m bars
Ruff neck stem
Shimano brakes
Supercross/s&m fork

I have a white industries and the engagement is second to none, even better than my profile mini cassette but nothing compares to the sound of the profiles
