1978 JMC Racing Short Standard

JMC surviver through the years.

This bike has had a rough life.  I have come across it in its final years to see if I could revive it.  It was broken and gussets welded to it and just overall beaten up.  I straightened it, rewelded some parts back on it and gave it a paint job.  The forks are from 1984, but they looked good on it, so there you have it.  Through on some 1 1/8 wheels-Shimano Hubs, Araya Rims, Durace cranks, Custom BB, DY Bars, DiaComp Brakes, KKT Lightning Pedals, & a Haro Plate.  All good for looking at.  One of my few that Are just for show.  Not going to take this one to the track.

Me and my 2 bros each had JMC racers in the late 70's. I think all 3 cracked at the bottom of the teardrop were it meets the head tube. Handled good and light as hell, but didn't hold-up. Awesome looking bike, glad you saved it.

The colors were special blends that can be reproduced by some auto paint companies if you have a sample.  But other than that, there is no color code for them.  I'm lucky enough to have them on the shelf.  Tommy

I think thats mis labeled. It looks like a Long (18.5 TT) versus the short (17.5 TT). The short top tube anlges almost even with the seat stays.
Yours looks like a Standard Long.
