ELF THREAD

Let's start a elf thread. I'm thinking about getting a early 90's doublecross! I had this Elf for a bit but ended up selling it. Can't remember why actually I can't even remember where I got it but I do remember it was pretty sweet!!!

Re: ELF THREAD

Love the candy teal ELFs! Here's my '94 as of a few months ago:
http://i47.tinypic.com/1z2zofn.jpg

Since I've put JP cages, black grips, light blue VG frame savers and cable hanger and a silver ELF pad set. Need a light blue or silver VG or 90s Paul lever to finish her off.

Re: ELF THREAD

Hey Ultrahots,  I have seen your teal ELF posted in several threads and it is one awesome bike.  I would like to see it posted in the museum with a full parts list so I can make it a FAV!  Awesome bike man.

Re: ELF THREAD

ELF be popular these days:

http://bmxmuseum.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=453080

I have two, and I really like them...I got them this summer.  One is a '94 XL that I need to put together with a decent parts list.


If you want silver pedal cages....better tell me now....it's all going out for anodizing before long and I then won't have silver...

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.

Re: ELF THREAD

Resurrecting this old thread.

I can't seem to find any technical information of ELF frames.

I just recently picked up 3 and I'm trying to determine sizes.

I know that the my 88 Double Butted is an XL with a 20.5 top tube.
I have another 87 that had a mix of pro and ex parts on it it has an 18.5" TT.

If you have time Measure you top tube and lets get some good info on the awesome rides.

I destroyed my Murray and Huffy bikes as a kid in the 80s while my friends rode nice bikes..  Shitty gear can cause injury and hurt your children. Hurting your children is child abuse...  Don't abuse your children!

Can you measure the top tube when you get a chance.

My 88 xl is 20.5 cen to cen. I wonder if your is an xl and the double butted ones are longer.
I spoke with Brett (3rdgear) He has one of the Brass pro frames. It's 19.5" top tube.
