This is the sickest JMC I've ever seen. I normally don't like the ones from the 70s but this thing is nicer than my ducati. Props to you bro. I would die for a bike like this.

It was actually the product of a lot of parts laying around from other builds. I would say a few months casually or one month aggresively. Thanks!

What a beaut!  lollolcool


Always looking for Cook Bros. stuff, vintage SE stuff,  MCS 6 bolt Super stems,  and Race Inc. Leading Edge/Cycle Pro/BMX innovations 20" forks.  All NOS or in very nice condition.
