2018 Jayhawk Racing Pro XL

I call her Grape Speed

Here’s my custom built 20" Jay Hawk with the 1st Jay Hawk frame made for a rear disc brake application with the 1st Jay Hawk custom made caliper bracket / mount.
I met up with Jim (JayHawk owner) to discuss all the many options he was able to build the frame. Options included top tube length, rivets showing or flush, with or without gussets, hand brushed or machine polished finish... He got me thinking hard and after a while I thought why not go with a modern rear disc brake setup?! I ran the idea through him and it didn’t take long for him to agree. I told him what I wanted it to look like and from there it was off to the drawing board. I had to do some research to find which hub would fit and made to take a disc the same time being able fit the space around the dropouts without having to compromise the geometry of the frame. After several discussions, researching parts that had the correct size and clear the dropout we were getting closer. Weeks go by deciding which route to go about then finally Jim was able to make it a reality for me. So after hours of thinking, Jim drew up the prototype piece while I gathered up parts. Once he got the design down he began fabricating the prototype, test fitting, and modifying the piece until it worked. Here’s the end result..
* Almost done but still a few more tweaks need to be done like tucking in the brakeline maybe cutting it shorter too, decals, valve caps and other minor stuff..

Thanks Jim for the patience, believing in my idea and willingness to make this bike one of my most exciting projects to date!! If any of you are looking for a bmx race bike that looks different, a specific size,a variety of finishing options and made with pride locally than a Jay Hawk is worth looking into. I highly recommended it!!
