1986 ELF Junior Cruiser 24

Ride #7, Gigantic Hummingbird - one for Josh & Jordan to share

Stumbled on to this one, and decided it was a keeper.  It's rather unique as the original owner (a racer) hand picked unique parts for light weight and speed.  I only switched the original black MX1000 for a white one, replaced a defective left crank arm, replaced the old original grips, and replaced the original stubby UNI for a UNI Turbo.  The blue is not original, but that's how I received it and it was well done.  The decals are OG (they were taped off for painting).  Specs ("CP" = (Current Production)):

-'86 ELF Junior Cruiser F/F (aka 'mini cruiser')
-CP A'me Tri grips
-'86 CW Aluminum cruiser bars ('mini cruiser bars')
-'86 DK square corner aluminum quilled stem
-'86 Galli headset with Mongoose top nut
-'86 ARAYA 7C 24" x 1-3/8" rims, '86 GT race hubs (hollow axle, sealed cartridge bearings)
-24 x 1-3/8" tires
-'86 Shimano 333 chrome freewheel (17 tooth)
-'84 Sedis 3/32" masterlinkless (Sedis Sport) chain
-'86 Bullseye 1st generation cranks (178 mm)
-'86 Pro Neck chainwheel (39 tooth)
-'86 Hadley BB (I think it is Hadley)
-'86 Suntour XCII braceless pedals
~'86 UNI Turbo seat
-'86 Odessey 1st generation seat clamp
~'86 Dia Compe MX1000 brake calipers
-'86 Dia Compe Tech 3 lever
-'86 Terry Cable brake cable

Re: 1986 ELF Junior Cruiser 24

Great bike Troy - I can see why this is a keeper! Also prefer it with the tanwall'd Pr1mos. cool


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!!
