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

Hutch Fun Facts: All main line Hutch's with digits only S/N (no letters or baseballs) on the rear drop outs were US made and had their dropouts stamped between late '83 and '86.  Obviously the frame manufacture would occur slightly after that, even if they just threw 'em in a bucket randomly.  There is an obvious date code in that the first 2 digits seem to be the month and the 3rd digit is pretty obviously the last digit of the year running from '83-'86.
