Gym Ed's Bike Shop builds a 1983 Mongoose Californian bicycle ("The Frankengoose") as a tribute to the greatest band in the history of rock 'n roll... Van Halen! Watch the video and get tips on retro bicycle builds and inspiration for your next rad project.
GEBS has taken a '83 Mongoose Californian frame and designed another epic bike. This custom build is a tribute to the greatest band in the history of rock 'n roll... VAN HALEN!! It's called "The Frankengoose" and we're completely stoked about how amazing this bike turned out.
In addition to several custom features in the bicycle design, we added a rad surprise in the video. Northern California artist, graphic designer, and fellow bike junkie, Kevin Reynolds (kr design), contributed his insane drawing skills to the project. His contribution helped make the build a successful, collaborative effort. Check out his "Eddie and The Frankengoose" drawing by watching the video. Thanks Kevin!!
