that is not a skyway , anything.

it's a mid 90's kids bike, is my guess. super shiny though so it does have that going for it.

Welds are super nice resembles a skyway streetstyler almost to a tee and judging by my experience with serial numbers and bikes it most likely an 87 I am a collector of old and mid school bikes and have 28 at the moment I'm super knowledgeable on em it is a very well built frame maybe overseas or custom build but I'm not sure but it has an awesome feel riding it reminds me of my old school dyno air or my mid to old-school performer performer minus mag wheels by feel but not by looks and for tube size it's lightweight for its era I'd sure like to know what it is just for curiosity I'll probably keep it and restore it with original parts whatever those may be

I mean try asking those guys on the forum. Not many people on this forum are interested in old school stuff. If you post pics and the serial # they might be able to help you a lot more than anyone here can.

It was spray painted red and after hours of carefully scraping the chrome is beautiful

i owned ( and broke) a skyway in the late 80's.

I'd bet a single dollar that the bike in question is not a skyway from 87. Didn't skyway go out of business late 80's? Or at least stop making / selling frames....

My guess is that bike is a department store, mid to late 90's childs bike.

Cool I own two skyways from the late 80s currently very similar welds I don't believe it's a skyway but is very possible defiantly not a department store bike I buy restore and sell bmx bikes and have for a long time now I don't buy department store bikes and judging by the quality of chrome and it's weight it's a top notch bike from a good maker defiantly costed some dough you can tell by welds and chrome,and back tangs it looks like if a late 80's skyway streetstyler or street beat had sex with a oldschool gt pro performer you'd end up with this but the lower rear bars that go to the tangs are shaped different than any thing I've ever seen and I've personally owned over 600 bmx bikes in my bike flipping adventures and this one makes me kinda excited to find out what it is and they changed the composition of chrome in 1992 so I guarantee it's older than that plus it is pre v brake and feels very good riding it wheelies awesome and feels awesome on big jumps and landing after catching some air I even flat landed it off a 6ft ledge just to test it and I'm 170 lbs felt better than most bikes it's a beast I don't plan on selling it if it's a department store bike than it's the best one ever made hands down

Please, dude, the word is "definitely", not "defiantly".

Holy hell bud, didn't realize y'all talked like that up in Washington

I don't crash, I do random gravity checks...

It’s a mongoose pro sniper. Easily worth $1000 to the right buyer. Just don’t dip it in shit first.

I didn't realize people talked like that in real life.

It's true people make jokes in real life by talking funny mainly clowning on southern people's choice of words.. think of it with a hillbilly accent saying it and then tell me you don't think it's funny too...nothing against southern people y'all crack me up

You’re about as ‘super knowledgeable’ when it comes to bikes as you are about the use of punctuation.

2/7/2019 2:26 AM

I still can't find a chrome one of those and the serial numbers dont come up on mongoose website and I didn't know this site was full of people who find punctuation and spelling so damn important I had a bike I wasn't sure on squirrel nuts answered my question on it I'm into old-school bikes got 20+ in my shop at all times I go through more bikes in a month or two than most people own thier whole life id say I'm knowledgeable I've been building, selling and most importantly riding them for over 20 yrs now and I've worked in multiple bicycle shops with over ten yrs under my belt professionally working with bikes this one still puzzles me on how nice it is for a mongoose and must be a pro model is guess plus I personally havent liked a mongoose since 1985 when they looptailed thier bikes I don't pay attention to them after that so that being said go ride your bike with no seat like you do some more and enjoy that seat post like you do smart ass if I wanted to talk shit to someone I would go visit your mom again son

For a start, it's not a spelling error; you're using a completely different word. It's important that things are easily readable so that we're not having to guess what you meant. It's not entirely unreasonable to ask that you use the correct word(s) correctly or even, to some extent, punctuation. You realise your entire previous post is just one long ass sentence?

The "Mongoose Pro Sniper" thing is just a running joke here. You can probably ignore it.

Why might anyone ride their bike with no seat? I'm not even going to question the "enjoy that seat post" part; it makes me wonder what kind of weird shit you're into...

Lastly, I fail to understand why you brought Spongeworthy's mother into this. It just seems like a lack of creativity...

Would you take $850 for your MONGOOSE PRO sniper?

|

2/7/2019 4:07 AM

you should be able to tell it's a low end bike by the components that are on it.

just. look. at. it.

He’s owned over 600 bmx bikes though, and can appreciate quality back tangs.
