Depends on how much the buyer wants them.

Got offered $200 for the Mongoose Expert. Should I take that? Not sure the year, anyone know by looking at it?

I looked on the Bicycle Blue book and a Complete 1998 Expert goes for between $35-40 bucks...the whole bike. In excellent condition. That frame looks like it was made in the 80's. Are you sure it is an Expert? What is the serial number on the bottom bracket.

If it is an older frame, it could be worth more than $200, so I would wait on it.
If it is a newer frame, I would take the $200 offer ASAP!!!

The serial number would help a lot. I always check BMX museum : http://bmxmuseum.com/

or Vintage Mongoose: http://www.vintagemongoose.com/index.php

it might be worth a look...AND these sites are just some great history as well

looks like via the dropouts and stickers the Mongoose frame is from 1983, as I thought. Damn...I want that frame!! I love old Mongeese....http://bmxmuseum.com/bikes/mongoose/8241

I think it's an early 80's frame, but I will check the serial number. Mongoose really went downhill in the early 90's, as did Diamond Back.

yeah. I originally had an 81 Supergoose. that got stolen, and then years later I got an 88 Californian Pro, which is what I still have now.

It is a shame that they sold out and lost their way through the 90's etc.

here is more info about the expert....first advertised in the 1984 catalog: http://www.vintagemongoose.com/pdfs/mongoose_cat84.pdf

The Mongoose is a 1983, the yellow Mach One is a 1987, and the chrome Mach One is an 89.

Is it true the Mach Ones with the bent up bottom bar weren't made till 93'?
