1979 JMC Long Standard
I've been wanting a 1979 JMC for a long, long time. I wanted OG paint, but this one was amazingly clean even though it had been painted at least five times.
I had big plans for this one. First to get it back to its original color--white. Parts are all 1979ish/era-correct. It's in great shape other than the finish. Nothing is crushed, no ugly nut/washer marks, no dings or dents, round headtube, seat tube and BB shell, nothing bent. And the welds are the tiniest I've ever seen. So clean.
