I had the itch a couple years ago to build up a JMC and decided a Black Shadow was my first choice. Thanks to Jim Melton I found out it was sold to Bicycle Warehouse of Bakersfield, CA on 11/21/1980 so I built it up to 1981 specs.
The only repro items on this bike are the pads and some of the decals--the crank decals, seat post decal (over the OG decal) and I assume the frame and fork decals as well. The non-drive crank arm and pedals are refinished. The stem was partially stripped when I picked it up from the original owner so I finished the job and hand polished it.
