Ok so I’m more of a pre 83 and older Bmx guy with that said there is a page over on FB that gives people the opportunity to put up some cool stuff for raffle at x amount a spot for x amounting spots. Any way this frame was put up before new years and the story is it was found in the crawl space of Mike DeMartino the founder of JAD as used at interbike show. Where he had 50lb weights hanging off of race crank, one on the head tube and one on seat post and showed people how much abuse it could take with out snapping on a Machine that beat the bell out of it. I payed for a spot and wound up winning it and man I tell ya I’m kind of geeked after all this is the 1st Jad frame and fork made in 1991 3 years before the company started production on the frames, forks and all the other things they made.i have decided to build it with late 80’s parts the fit the over all condition of the frame set. Top end stuff but beat up 🤕. Any way if you have any ideas on a good parts list to help me out I would appreciate it lol so far I have a old Shimano 600 head set with ceramic races a 89-90 S&M redneck stem, a larger seat post and a shorter bb. 9B997BEA-0CD6-4D54-AFF2-38D9383C8DEC.jpeg 860D1DD4-BFC7-45FA-896E-4E9AE7334571.jpeg A9916253-376A-42AB-BA89-49840164A4F6.jpeg 57B653CB-4A9F-46DE-BE31-205A2C03EBEE.jpeg 3BB90AB2-6B4B-47A5-9DF3-70BB20E2BBD0.jpeg 308F0EB4-3BF0-45CA-BE7D-095B2F9D7D07.jpeg 57798304-36FC-4AFF-8107-BFB5A6CF6A5B.jpeg DAE85FE7-C629-4E60-9ADB-D3E3825F0062.jpeg

As much as I love pre-84 BMX, I always had a soft spot for JAD's. Seems like you won the lottery right there.

Congratulations on the win. It’s not the era I would normally collect but I would love to find one someday.

Well I tossed on a set of old dirty grayish white tuff II’s on her just to see. Kind of looks cool.

Not really feeling the Tuff’s. Maybe try some 48 hole rims like in the old pic.

I'm digging the music wall more than the bike I think.

I like the bike AND the wall posters etc.

 

I am intrigued about those fork drop outs. I am thinking very lazy steering but this is a race frame?????

 

Please explain.

Agree on the spokes and like I posted when looking at the frame I didn’t know how it would feel because of the style of frame lol

It looks way better with the spoked rimes.  I'm sooo confused as to what is happening on the dropouts on those forks.  LOL

That is a trippy looking frameset. Lean towards spokes on it.

All done and this rig will not be ridden. The crank arms are so wore out they move quite a bit on the spindle. Oh well like I said I ain’t riding it lolD7DE69A5-716C-4EEE-98BB-EAB3E68A1492.jpeg
