Production Numbers JMC, Nomura etc.

What other companies did low production numbers on some of their models?

I know JMC produced 330'ish AP's and Nomura produced 310'ish 20" Aluminium Frames (even less cro-mo 20")

So besides the above, who else did small runs of bikes pre 1985?

Input welcomed....

Re: Production Numbers JMC, Nomura etc.

Prodyne  There is only 9-26" accounted for and 2-24" accounted for

I am sure they made more but they are SUPER low numbers

Re: Production Numbers JMC, Nomura etc.

Hey Ben..... what about the "Sunshine" alloy frame, made out of Victoria..... huge 2" down tube with a "square back" style rear end and if my memory is correct "thruster" style rear drops.

I'm not sure of production numbers but they woud be less than 100, I've only ever seen 1 that a mate of mine had bitd. Its too bad the pic I have has no detail to it.

This is truly one of the rarest and lowest quantity Australian BMX frames ever made.

Re: Production Numbers JMC, Nomura etc.

ESP  bikes   they were titanium frame and  fork  for most part . early  80"s  welded in  texas ,  not sure how many  built  at beginning  but  my  mini  is the  only  2nd  one known on this  site  and  the other mini  doesnt have original fork and  downtube  snapped . it was rewelded  and  added  a  gusset , so mine is  only known still intact original. but imagine  asking  mom and dad  for a  titanium race frame and fork in early  80's  . you prolly could  have  bought a decent  used  car for  what the  frame set  costed  new

Re: Production Numbers JMC, Nomura etc.

GJS starting 1983.

The Gen4 A-Frame based on SN was 100 or less.
The Gen5 A-Frame based on SN was 500 or less.
The Big Tube was probably 100 or less.
The Freestylers was probably 500 or less. Maybe 1000 or less.

The Gen1, 2 and 3 bikes all were in the 1000 quantity.

Re: Production Numbers JMC, Nomura etc.

Think your numbers might be a little bit out John, Reach BMX systems made less than 200 Direct Link's  and less that 100 A.I.R frames.


Looking for Hawk gear, let me no what you got.

Re: Production Numbers JMC, Nomura etc.

I was told 200 F&F 250 just frames...i could be mistaken though. I also know that Direct Links were used as loaner bikes at Woodward.  I have a Woodward program/magazine and I see pics of ALOT of racers using them on the test tracks.  I will have to dig around and find it!
