Guys

The pads have been sized from the most common size of mongoose pads.

I have 200+ NOS mongoose pads and the sizings varied over 50mm from pads to pads.

The printing varies and so does the placements.

These were made by more than one company in the 80's

Note we also had to decide to use TM or R for the pads as there was those thing to consider.

We cant make every different length of pad for every model. so we used the most common size.

Also mongoose did NOT make Vbar pads at all.

Mongoose frame pads were very short compared to Redline ones.


If you fine real long mongoose frame pads, then they will not be geniuine
