Add to that the parts hunt and I'm in the exact same boat as you. My garage is packed with bikes, parts, and tools.

I'm, definitely, down with that...and was hoping someone would suggest it.

I'll try to throw-in a "P.K. Ripper" build/resto, along the way.



Thanks for all the great pics; Keep 'em comin...

Oh, hell. There's that white JMC again. So cool. I have a blue one, 475th ever built.

Here's a pair of DG's I picked up locally a few years back. Love the MX---BMX crossover companies.

Nice DG's man, I know the 26" looptails are a hot commodity, are those 20's hard to come by?

Is it built up?

I know Schwinn serial numbers but not JMC, would this be the 677 one made then? It is a long standard.

Heavy frames on those DG's. I traded mine to a guy, so he could add a sidehack to it.

Okay, Gentlemen, let's get this party started...


For those of you who have read all the posts, Mr. Perterra has offered to hook-me-up with a reputable, professional welding outfit (for repairing the dropouts). If you saw my post, you know that I have ordered the Helix dropout savers.

I have a feeling that the arrival of the dropout savers will answer any questions I might have. However, as it stands right now, I would rather reserve welding repair, of the inner radiuses of the dropouts, as a last ditch bid.


Here are inner radiuses of the dropouts...


Left/bottom-side


Left/top-side


Right/bottom-side


Right/top-side




At this point, I'm thinkin' some smoothing, with a rotary/"Dremel"-style tool, will do the trick.

Every Christmas, my loving Father (RIP) would stock my toolboxes. So, I have this...






But (as with most of the tools he gave me), just because I have it, doesn't mean I know how to use it.
***I love and miss you, Dad.***



What says the collective?...

Welding?...or smoothing?

I ride my shit, so I would clean it up and move on with some chain adjusters.



If this project is a show queen by all means have it welded up.

I've never used him but have read good things about the FRAME DOCTOR. Kinda far for that small repair but info for the collective nonetheless.

Was it the thief's who thought it a better idea to drill the dropouts as apposed to adding a link or 2.

I have a feeling it is gonna' wind-up being more of a "show queen". However, despite that, I would like to do the least amount of repair as possible. Nonetheless, thanks for the link. It may come in handy.

As far as the extra link or two, on the chain, that was probably me. As a kid, I didn't have anyone standing over me telling me, "Don't do that, son", or "Don't do it like that, son". My Dad was very busy with his job(s)...making sure that he gave my Mom, my Brother, and I everything we ever wanted. So, I didn't really start to learn mechanical and metallurgical things until later in life.


I'll tell y'all, if you don't think that ADV is the greatest site in the world, and don't believe that it has something for everyone, I would strongly disagree.

A coupla' days ago, I asked a simple question about a "P.K. Ripper". Today, I have the link to the "Frame Doctor", and...y'all will never believe this shit...the name of the folks who did the original finishing work for SE Racing! (Thank you, z-man99!!!)

Here we are, on a motorcycle site, beginning the resto on my 30-year-old bicycle. Crazy...


Once again, thanks to all who are helping me.

+1 on the chain adjusters. Smooth out the dropouts carefully, but stay away from welding, imo.

I recently picked up a Mongoose Expert Pro cruiser. It needed a few things, and I"m getting close to being done after cleaning it up, polishing, new grips, seat and just found some Mongoose branded pedals.

Oh man, when I was a kid my best friend won a Redline just like that in a raffle at the mall. I was seething with jealousy. All of a sudden he had a Mongoose AND a Redline!
