1976 FMF JR Pro

Spirit of '76

I purchased this frame off the museum months ago, sporting the OG finish, still in very nice shape.  By chance, I already owned a perfect set of 500b's from the era and happened to be the exact same red/orange as the "FMF" logo.  This became my color sceme and so I went from there.  This was my first build old enough to require a coaster brake, finally a true 1976. 
I found a nice pair of chrome Femco's with the Bendix brake and added a pair of OPC's and some rat traps.  It was also by chance, that a bent seat post, made from old set of handlebars would fall in my drawer [according to some history on the museum, that was the original origin of lay back seat posts in the 70's, cool stuff].  It took awhile to find some decent parts that would do this build justice and the last peice was found a few weeks ago when a 70's Matthews double stem came up for sale.
I'm hoping to aquire a pair of Carlisle MX tires someday but for now, these knobby's will do just fine and still capture that 70's look.

Nice built  I totally understand the seat post...cool story.  However, if you move down a bit the seat it will look a lot cooler...jmho.

Very cool bike and build. I have a 76 Race Inc frame non brake bridge non serial, waiting patiently. Frame has a small crack I need to repair. Very cool color combo you went with.

Don't confuse effort with results!
