1981 JMC Racing Short Standard

81' JMC Flea Market Find

Probably my best find so far. Found this JMC at a flea market in Georgia about 4 years ago. The guy had a bunch of bikes (mainly cheapies) asking $10 a piece. I spotted this one and didn't have any cash! I asked if he would hold it until I found my wife and came back with cash, to which he replied "I can't make any promises." I don't think I've ever ran so fast in my life. Well, obviously, it was still there when I got back. Parts include UKAI 1 3/8" dark blue rims, Blue/Silver Sunshine flip-flop hubs, Uni seat and seat cover w/ACS seatclamp, Suntour VX cranks w/Sugino chainring and sealed cartridge BB, MKS pedals, Tioga headset w/Tange lock, Blue Dirt Skirt, and Tuf-Neck mini stem. F/F Blue powdercoat is a pretty good match to original color. Added a set of Win chromoly bars and finished off with white/blue pads from Jim Melton.

I added a pic with the Frame pad installed, still working on the stem and bar pads in white w/blue.

Re: 1981 JMC Racing Short Standard

Yes, I paid $10 originally, but it did not have the current parts on it when I bought it. I basically stripped it down to the F/F and rebuilt it. It originally had Araya 7B 1.75 with Suzue HF, Torker six bolt stem (which is on my 79 Team Mongoose), Gold alloy V-bars, and thrashed Sugino 3 pc cranks.
