1977 Gary Littlejohn Fireroad 26

The Original 26" BMX Cruiser *SOLD*

I'd been fired up to find a 1977 Littlejohn Fireroad Cruiser with original paint for a while. During one of my cracked out Sherlock Chromes research nights, I discovered that the earliest advertisement/mention of a 26" cruiser actually made by a BMX company was in June of 1977 when Peddlers West "Introduced" the Gary Littlejohn Fireroad cruiser. The 77's came with 13/16" seat tubes, no brake bridge, thicker rear dropouts, and capped rear stays that have a wider spacing at the top loop. After that the frames got more streamlined along with 7/8" seat tubes, thinner dropouts, and chromoly options.
Being an early frame I wanted to keep this build in the 1977/78 range, before the lightweight and anodized colored parts era. Sort of a tribute to where the 26" bmx cruisers started.
I want to send a thanks out to Mike in San Diego, Larock, Joe Buffardi, Robert Nonamecruiser, Locort, Patxi, Eddie sr505, & MarkMc. These guys helped me with the parts I needed & tipped me off when they found what I was looking for. Thanks fellas!
