Thanks for the photo out of Pancake magazine a few days ago Mick, good day that one first time i ever tripled, 13 x, 13-14 open and 13-14 criuser, winter 1982 at Woodlands track.
Hey Glenn not the pinchless cranks in that photo, had got the new cranks as soon as they came out and sold you the duds !

Beautiful Bike Martin.

Are you running both MX 900?, It looks like you need to swap the MX1000 from the front with the MX 900 in the back (Looks long in the front, and short in the back)... This is a minor detail, the bike is truly AWESOME!!!!
www.martin-bike.com
Thanks Juan.

The brake choice was intentional to make the bike look as close as possible to the black and white July 1981 Aero ad with RL and John Crews.

They are both MX1000s.

Thanks Martin

love that blue JMC by the way.

Also I want to add here, I am done with all australian forums as of right now.
Rather than take sides I am giving them all a miss.
I will visit both but thats it.
If you guys want to find me, call or find me here or Society.
Cheers
ps I am really tired so this is just a rant. I think.

i'll be around with Jacksparrow and a couple of others. staying with a friend in Morningside, but will probably head into Brisbane for some food and beers sat night. will pm my number Christian, or anyone else who might be around.
Fulltilt


Yeah Kurt , my 4th one actually . I think I had the same problem as Craig , I did get a password reset from a mod but it didn't work . This was easier .
The Mustang was a rental and you know they are much more fun than any car you actually own , just ask Waz . Next ride for me is a 2010 Camaro ...

It's all good.

Glenn - I know what u mean mate.

Hmm...my VBMX senses tell me someone scored BIG TIME Today in QLD....damn, wasnt me though! wink.gif
I wish they would post some pics!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



All I got today was these stickers....

Brisben
Ok Mick

you twisted my arm


Who would have thought that this pile of junk





What the hell, I thought - that might be a Proline frame - for $100 I could always pass it on to someone, and besides, there might be some neat spares in all that old junk!


Hit BIN


After a bit of wrangling organised to get the gear collected today

My mate who picked it up for me was as excited as I was and made the drive to Brisbane from near Gatton (about an hour and a half), he was afraid I might not sleep tonight after he told me what was in the box....


But first

Is this a Proline - the fella reckons it was bought in 83 - he said he put new stickers on it for his step son





It had some cranks and pedals on it




Some Bars in the box




oh










and I nearly forgot









this stem was rolling around in the box too









bunch of other stuff too that I'll clean up a little and take pics of


Not Bad for $100 really





I'm stoked !!!
COASTY
OH My Friggin GOD!!! You lucky $#%&@.
Seriously awsome score mate. Sometimes you just have to hit that BIN.
I did a similar thing 5 years ago. $40 BIN turned out to be a damn nice haul.
Love that Proline mate.
COASTY
Also where is everyone staying on Sat night? If theres a group thing goin on somewhere I'm in for a party.
QuicksilverBMX

Faaaaaarrrrrrrrkkkkkkkkkk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Makes my parts score look like I wiped my ass with $80 and flushed it down the toilet!
Brisben
It was complete speculation



At the front is also a fairly nice set of SR Cranks too

There is a Chair Hub and a Suzue flip flop





Another crazy thing is that the fella told me "it doesn't have the original forks on it, my brother crashed it"

Which made me think it wasn't a Proline

BUT

it has TX 500's on it - that suit the 5" steerer


What was the TT measurement on Proline ?


Those bars are stamped too!

Must be a Proline then - 19 1/2 Centre to centre


Better rip those rubbish cranks off it and put some single pinch on

Chrome is shot - so some Roberto magic is in order

With that TT length and those huge V Bars I reckon I've got myself another 20" rider when it's completed!!!

Better dig my Suntour hubs out of the vault



Is it ok to have a few beers tonight to celebrate?

Volcano
Yes...have a few beers after THAT Score!!! wink.gif

Nevermind. False alarm.

Well so much for my stealth plan of flying under the radar, I was gonna just go down to the airport, buy a ticket and board the plane. But it seems the mrs wont take tomorrow off as she wont get paid (no sick leave left, shes a casual)

And believe me or not, I was actually serious this year. I wanted to surprise everyone. F**k it

Next year Reece. I'll meet you there.

Well over 200 complete bikes

Fantastic weather

Just nuts!!!

Wow, looks like a great turnout. Man oh man, I wish we had those kind of gatherings in NZ. There might be more enthusiasm for vintage stuff then smile.gif

I've had this built for about three weeks, but I needed to make a few minor adjustments. It still isn't quite right, but other than getting better fitting foam for the pads, trimming the brake cable end, and capping it, and maybe (way in the future), getting a genuine JMC seatpost (I struggle with the concept of paying a small fortune for a tube of 4130 with a cap on it smile.gif ). I may chase down some blue Shimano DX pedals for it, as I think they will look better. This is the first time I have put a layback seatpost on a 24. Even though it is a minimal layback (it is actually a trimmed GT seatpost), I'm not yet convinced. I may go back to a straight post.

I have to admit, when I built this, it just didn't make me fire on all cylinders. I have been wanting one of these for so long, and once I had finally got one, and got it built, it was kind of an anticlimax. Dont get me wrong, it rides beautifully, just like one would expect from a JMC cruiser. But I wasn't driven to post up photos, like I normally am. Kind of weird I guess.

This is it for me, for now. Other than a Patterson PR240 redux, which should happen in the next few weeks or so. I dont have the drive, or space anymore.

1982 JMC 24.













I have to thank my good friend Clint. Without him, I would never have ended up owning one of the nicest race 24's out there. JMC 24's to me are one of the nicest balanced 24's I have ever ridden.
Kurt.
Looks like another great day in Brissy. Looking forward to more pics.

Love your JMC 24 Mike - we are always gonna be the biggest critics of our own bikes. I could find a place in my garage for that! Subtle red, white and blue always just works on a JMC. Love it.

Thanks smile.gif. Actually, I forgot to add, that the inspiration for the colour scheme for this, came from Martins white JMC Shadow that he has on his site. I kept going back and looking at that while this 24 was on its way, and even once I had it, I still kept looking at it, envisaging what the 24 would look like in white with a bit of red and blue.

I had an alternative scheme lined up, of white, with black and chrome. I'm pleased I went with the red/blue.

I knew I wanted an early 24, with the bladed forks. Thankfully this one was available.

Hi guys. Reece, hopefully I'll get to meet you next year.
Man what a weekend. I still have a sore arse. The ride on Sat was huge fun. I had a ball and so did Tobes. I have some pics but I imagine Andrew has a million. I saw him with his camera all day taking pics.
The quality and quantity is absolutely massive now. We've come a long way us Aussies in 5 years. I know Roberto is still wondering how much bigger next years is going to be. 200 + bikes. All of them were 100% class. Well done boys.
I have to say a huge thanks to Roberto and his family and friends. You guys are so good at this. I look forward to this every year and you guys didn't disappoint .
Thanks.
Finally thanks to my wife and family for making the trip a great time. Even the keys locked in my car, thanks Tobes. laugh.gif

Oh and Mike the JMC is hot mate. Looks great. I really want an old school cruiser now. With a padded seat! LOL
Kurt.
LOL Kashi's get more comfy as you bum wears in!!!

Looks like a fantastic weekend guys. Props!

Here's a few from Sat ride from my phone before the card filled up.

Great weekend guys. congrats Roberto on a fantastic Sunday. Ill be back next year. Oh and btw dont book a 29 dollar tiger airways flight home at 1030 at night. I didnt get to melbourne till 3am lol.
troyboy66
Cracking way to spend a Sunday, my only disapointment was old mate didn't turn up with the Helium (from last year), cause I has a few serious $$$ in a envelope ready to entice him to part with it, but all in all the sheer number of bikes & oh my god the standard of builds, JUST BRILLIANT.
Roberto. congrats to youself, family & friends, I'll be there next year.
