1984 JMC Shadow
« on: April 25, 2020, 10:06 AM »
A little something that I have been working on, fook it, in reality it is my grail bike.

I rode for JMC bitd and always said that one day I would build one, so when JJ was selling this I couldn't say no.

I rode for JMC bitd and the frame I used was a Shadow so at some stage I had to build one. I have been putting it together with stuff I used bitd and using a bit of artistic licence on other parts (i.e. using stuff I already had in my possession).

I also got the certificate from JMC.com, which says it was shipped to Hot Wheels in 84 with the original shipping notes that Jim Melton wrote.

I hope you all like it as much as I do.

Stidds, you're building some quality bikes at the moment, and this is right up there with your best  :4_17_5:  :smitten:

Love JMC's, actually bought an early Black Shadow about 12 years ago in the states. Had it shipped to my father-in-law in Key West as the seller wouldn't ship international, and it's still sitting in his garage till this day, arse just never got around to shipping it  :tickedoff: :'(
**** WANTED: Early black Comp ST's, Mint Black Shotgun 2 or OG Suede Kashi Aero, Titrons, Black-White/White-Black RadKaps. Thank You ****

I thought I was happy with the parts but I just had to upgrade the bars, I managed to find a set of JMC Darrell Young bars so they had to grace the bike.
