NOS JMC find....yes....NOS!!!

This is by far the best find I have ever had, and probably the best find I ever will have.  The seller knew it was valuable, but we came to a price that we were both happy with.  NOS 1984 Black Shadow Frame, NOS straight seatpost, NOS D. Young forks, NOS JMC racing plate, NOS JMC brakeguard.  The decals for the frame and forks are in the bags, and the tag is the last pic was in the box with the frame.  I'm still somewhat shocked about it, so I'm not sure what else to say, but I'll let the pics do the talking, and I hope you enjoy looking at this as much as I do  big_smile big_smile

yikes WoW, Simply STUNNING!!! Beautiful!! Congrats on the find. But build it, what is the sense of having a bike as beautiful as that and have it in pieces. Build it and display it so it could shine as its glory for all to admire. big_smile

Re: NOS JMC find....yes....NOS!!!

Possibly the last NOS JMC out there, building it would be moronic IMO. Sell it for profit to someone that will preserve it before you build it. There are plenty of other ones out there that have been built already.

I wouldn't build that either.  That's an awesome piece of history right there.  Congrats.

Re: NOS JMC find....yes....NOS!!!

Thanks for the kind comments guys!!!  I'm so stoked to own a piece of history like this.  As far as building it goes, there's no debate, it will never be built by me.  I've never been a fan of unbuild NOS items, but I think it's important to preserve a little bit of history.  For example, I'm a carnivore and love eating dead animals, and while I'm sure that a panda steak grilled on an open fire would be very tasty, I would not kill a panda and eat one unless they were at least off of the endangered species list tongue   What I'm saying is, NOS JMC's are probably an endangered species, and I'm not going to eat it......or something like that......you know what I mean... lol cool
