As much as I love pre-84 BMX, I always had a soft spot for JAD's. Seems like you won the lottery right there.

Congratulations on the win. It’s not the era I would normally collect but I would love to find one someday.

Well I tossed on a set of old dirty grayish white tuff II’s on her just to see. Kind of looks cool.

Not really feeling the Tuff’s. Maybe try some 48 hole rims like in the old pic.

I'm digging the music wall more than the bike I think.

I like the bike AND the wall posters etc.

 

I am intrigued about those fork drop outs. I am thinking very lazy steering but this is a race frame?????

 

Please explain.

So much better with the rims. That’ll be one cool ride.

Agree on the spokes and like I posted when looking at the frame I didn’t know how it would feel because of the style of frame lol

It looks way better with the spoked rimes.  I'm sooo confused as to what is happening on the dropouts on those forks.  LOL

All done and this rig will not be ridden. The crank arms are so wore out they move quite a bit on the spindle. Oh well like I said I ain’t riding it lolD7DE69A5-716C-4EEE-98BB-EAB3E68A1492.jpeg

I remember seeing that bike first time in the magazines and loved the fork design.

As i'm a home made man i created this fork...
