Re: 1994 ELF Pro XL

Nice!! cool  Like you, I didn't know about ELF bitd (though I had moved onto cars by the 90s) but the more I see, the more I want one. As and when I ever get round to a mid-school build, I think it's going to be an ELF!!


Check out my 1983 VDC-built Trident, 1983 Kuwi Laserlite, 2010 GT Ultrabox 2, 2011 Crupi race rig and prototype Quamen, plus the all things Crupi & old school scene in Japan threads. Always interested in buying used, mid-school race plates and pads - UGP, Knucklebone, Lizard Skins, Pryme and the like, me like!!

Re: 1994 ELF Pro XL

The earlier Elfs were ok, but never really caught my eye until I was in a bike shop & saw one of these. You've got a really cool bike there.....it just looks like a race bike!  cool

Re: 1994 ELF Pro XL

Thanks for the comments guys (and the feedback B-R).  For me, it's just one of those perception things, where I now have it in my mind that everything coming from them is quality.

Nice thing about a bike like this is that it has an old school look, but is big.

Re: 1994 ELF Pro XL

I like this elf the best on here.Two thumbs up! I'm building one a lot like this one. I never had a kashimax bitd (1986-1990) but am puting a new paded suede on my elf build. Thanks for the inspiration!
