JMC XL

Recommended Posts

Here is a JMC XL that I just finished for my Nephew. Not sure about the year, and have not seen many of these out there. I did a old/new school build and think it came out cool.

Looks ready to hit the dirt and go racin!

 

Nice JMC!

 

Thanks! He may still be a bit too small, but I'm sure he will dig it!

Killer little whip - the xl basically replaced the st'd short, looks to be a late 80/81 model.

 

That's a mighty nice build you built him, hope he can appreciate it.

Nice little bike. What will it be used for? Hopefully not just beating on. Too nice a frame set for that. Personally, I would trade out the frame set for something that isn't so desirable so he can beat on it. I'm just having visions of that bike laying out in the driveway or locked on a bike rack somewhere. Very few kids respect vintage bikes. Perhaps he is different. Is it original finish?

Thanks all for the cool words! I plan on explaining the bike and history to him. I also plan to build him a beater to learn on and maybe if he starts racing he can take it to the track and show it off. Dad is going to get a history lesson as well.... The bike needs to be well protected and taken care of. I would hate to see this go the way of many bikes back in the day (Stolen)! The powder coat is not original and the headtube has had some work done.

I like it.

 

JMC has a lot going on, with the tubing, top tube penetration, and looptail.

 

The thin tubing is just something else.

 

:cheers:

Thanks Man! I agree and it was cool to build a short/mini as this is the first. I remember the smaller kid running sewups, but I had a hard time finding them.
