1979 Jag

1979 Jag

Banana Jag

Here is the Banana Jag I've been working on for a while.  I remember a local guy racing his Banana yellow Jag BITD and many off us lusted after it.  I can't remember what components he had but another local from around here (Johnny Chopper) reckons that bike was yellow with blue components.  So here is my tribute.  Like most of my builds this one is a combo of refinished components matched with nice survivor parts, the occasional NOS or even repop bit (shh .... don't tell anyone).

Many thanks once again to Roberto from Roberto Custom Powder for another sensational finish.  The colour is a match for the Mongoose yellow from this era as we were not able to source an example of original Jag Banana yellow.
I can't decide whether I like the yellow pedals or blue so I've posted pics of both.  What do you guys think?   Decided on blue.

Re: 1979 Jag

Banana Jag! Awesome! I reckon you must have got the inspiration from Brad P's Jag. Probably my favorite bike from BITD. I remember Peter Wert riding the gold team Jag and thought that the sand color team Jag would be cool but nothing impressed me as much as Brad's banana Jag.

Re: 1979 Jag

Appreciate the great comments fellas.  I'm still undecided about the pedals but will be keeping them blue for now as I'm sick of changing them lol.  Maybe one blue one yellow roll

Sweet mother of one pound baby jesus! smile

I know this is over two years old of a thread but i was thinking if you could have a yellow body pedal with blue cages.
Or vice-a-versa if that combo doesn't appeal to you


I'm looking for the following frames, frame & forks or completes by BMX products:
MotoTrac (nickle or chrome), Racer-X or a Super-X (with the double gussets).
Thanks wink
I'm also johnng23604 at "Retro-goose", "VintageBMX" & "RADbmx"
