1980 Jag

1980 Jag

Here is my latest restoration - 1980 Jag with era correct parts.

This Jag frame was recued from the dump only a few short months ago. It was thrown out with a heap of other modern bikes on top of each other and stacked on an old couch. This frame was on the bottom and was a very lucky save. It had three coats of paint on it when found and had a fluted aluminium seat pole stuck well down in the tube. It took me many hours of cleaning, a trip to a fitter and turner to have the pole drilled out and now here we have it...Parts include - gold annodized aluminium handlebars and seat pole, Nitto MX2 goose neck, Tange front forks, Sugino snow flake chain wheel, Takagi cranks, KKT pedals, OGK red tuffs, Comp. 3 look a like tyres and old school bling checkered grips. The decals are reproductions and I'm happy with the result.

Re: 1980 Jag

I'm so glad you saved this one, I regretfully sold my jag in the Reno Nevada area in 1986, a year or two later when I wanted to buy her back I found out she was stolen from the kid I sold it to.
I shiver to think that my old jag might of been stripped of her parts and the frame thrown out as junk. If I could never find her, I'd at least hope she fell into the hands of a collector.  My dad and I built her from the frame up when I was ten or twelve years old, she was black with gold parts except for red tourney cranks and red KKT's.  GREAT JOB!
