1984 JMC Racing Darrell Young

Fresh out of the grandparents attic

I just dug my old JMC out of it's 20+ year hibernation from my grandparents attic this week and thought I'd share. It's an 84 JMC Darrell Young and was the last bike I raced. I bought the frame, fork and 20 X 1 3/8 Ukai rims in 1984 at Action Wheels in NJ. The handlebars and stem are MCS. It also has Red Line flight cranks, Pete's Precision sprocket, Shimano DX's, Grab-On's and a Uni seat. Right now it sits just as I last rode it (around 1986). I plan on disassembling it this winter, polishing and reassembling as is. Thanks for the great site! Chris

I recently talked to the shop where I got the bike (Action Wheels in NJ) it's still run my the same family who at the time, played a major part of BMX racing in South Jersey. I was curious about the skinny rims... they claimed they were pushing the 1 3/8 back then trying to start a new trend, at least with the smaller riders. I guess I bought into it, LOL. These rims were carried over from my MCS I had before the DY. I agree though, they do kinda look out of place now.

Re: 1984 JMC Racing Darrell Young

We had the same trend over here about 1985..We called them "skinnys" A lot of people used to raid there mothers shopper bikes' wheels to get the look! Then bend them first time out and put some arayas back on!! I think it looks great as it is! excellent work mate!! Cheers! Aaron97


It's better to say I'm glad I did...than I wish i had!

Re: 1984 JMC Racing Darrell Young

Wow, thanks! I actually changed up a few more things on it....  Araya 7X's with a set of Bullseye hubs, layback seat post and Aero seat. It's much more rider friendly now. And I DO ride it around Philly!

Here it is as she sits now.

Re: 1984 JMC Racing Darrell Young

Yeah, that look is pretty sick there. Just the JMC is so legendary... Man, that is some good stuff there... Darrell Young is the man..  I met him before and was down to earth and very cool.. Just like I hoped he'd be.. Be proud of that bike,

Re: 1984 JMC Racing Darrell Young

Awesome!  Glad to see you upgraded the wheels to something you could ride on now.  No sense in having a bike that nice that you cant enjoy a ride on.

Re: 1984 JMC Racing Darrell Young

i think your bike looks killer with the 1 3/8ths on. i use to run those in 83/84 and they made the bikes looks faster and they felt faster too. the bikes also sat taller with those 1 3/8ths. its really good to see you kept your bike all these years and remember dont ever get rid of it.

Re: 1984 JMC Racing Darrell Young

Bike looks great all shined up.

FWIW a lot of racers used the bigger rims in my area until the bulked up too much for them. I did for a time. They were nice and... zippy.
