I want to add some cool stuff to a old mongoose i have, i am going to by some chrome cranks, chrome bars, and maybe a new stem but i am not entirely sure if its worth keeping the old mongoose logo frame.

eventually i will replace the entire bike but i am trying to save some money and i just want to do the upgrade slowly

replace parts that are broken but keep the ones that are not then just upgrade it slowly that way

Save and buy a new one.
I don't even recommend learning on a mongoose. No offense, but your life is at risk while riding one of those.
Some friends and myself have bought 3 haros in the past month on craigslist for under $75 a piece.
Granted, they aren't they greatest bike, and they weigh more than a dump truck. They are solid though, and decent bikes to learn on.
If you don't mind saying, where are you located? I'll browse around your local craigslist and see if I find anything worth looking into.
