  1. I have 3 Mongoose bikes (Brawler 24, Motivator 20, Motivator 24 i think) all made around 2000 give or take a few years. I'm trying to find out how to read the serial numbers. First digits are: HAMI HAMJ HAMK Do you read the second, third or 4th letter as the year? Thanks all....

  3. Saw this and think this is the best and safest way to get up to speed. Especially for older guys wanting to do retro. Wyndham BMX club in Hoppers Crossing. Starts this Thursday. Every club should try this.
  4. Trying to relive my youth I picked up one of these frames from John across in the states. Its a XXL #004 from the recent batch he made up (13 series) I used to race a Lil Holeshot back in the '80s so have good memories of racing on a Hutch and oddly I didnt want to go down the track of building a Pro Racer from that era but rather liked the look of the retro frames in 'larger guy' sizing. Chrome and gold is the plan.
  5. After seeing another forum members new school Hutch build I decided I wanted to relive past glories and build one up myself. Used to race a Holeshot back in the mid 80's here in WA. So my #004 frame and forks arrived just after Christmas along with a set of pro bars. I have a set of gold Sinz cranks ready to go and a few parts on their way. Going to take me a while sadly as the Wife's Ford excreted an air con system to the tune of $3800 but will happen sooner than later.
  6. Got back into all things BMX restoring/building a Hoffman EK (my grail mid-school bike) as a carpet Queen, then built myself a Skyway TA 24" cruiser/rider and suddenly found myself with 3 potential old-school builds on the boil that I would probably never ride ... so was really keen on a new-school rider build that I might be able to attempt some of the old moves on. Maybe even a few new ones. Being originally from the UK and having become slightly Hoffman-obsessed I decided I wanted one of these Ben Hennon signature Lady Luck frames. I really liked the decal scheme, how light they were, how cool they looked. But it was impossible to get hold of one here in Australia, so I found a clear coated one on AceBMX in the U.S. and paid the $$ to have it shipped. I opted for Hoffman Bama (Seth Kimbrough signature) forks and then slowly set about building the rest of it with a preference towards Demolition components. Here's how it ended up. At the moment it's got a set of blue Weinemann rims on it that I had lying around, which do the job but will eventually change these once these get bashed-up. I've also replaced the cool blue Tioga Spyder Pivotal Seat with a much more leg-and-ass friendly Hoffman Black-Ops padded pivotal. Also, it turns out this is either a fairly rare frame or no-body else wants one because BMX Museum had to create a new 'Model' indexing thingo on the site to accommodate my bike. It's still the only one on there a couple of months later. So either: a ... everyone thinks it's a s**t frame or b ... Hennon's rep on the BMX scene means no-one wants to ride his signature frame. This extract from an article about him in a UK magazine might explain why: "Ben is an outspoken and intimidating personality [he] has experienced popularity and rejection in equal measure. For a time his interaction with the majority of the UK scene could be summed up in a single word – hate. Dressed all in black and flipping off the crowd, he was the pantomime villain ... credible sponsors ignored him, he was an outsider, an outcast." I actually liked the sound of him. Anyway, I'm stoked at this little BMX project. it's nice and light, which is helping me get some of the moves back from yesteryear (and pull off a 360 for the first time ever at 44-years of age ... I was way too weedy to do 'em as a 15 year old on my beloved DB Pro-Star) and I've given it a go at the local skate-park and it's manoeuvrability is awesome.
