That one is nice!  My friend had that ad taped to his wall when we were growing up.

Sick Bikes in this thread.  I imagine how she has sat since about 1985-1986:

Re: High end race survivors

I have 3 contributions to this, especially meeting the definition of survivor.  I'm generally only concerned with factory correct survivors, not some individuals personally selected custom, but I've got one of those that was just too right not to respect.

#1 - 1997 GT Speed Series Team XL As found, virtually factory original survivor:
https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/37108/dsci647959ed3cace1.jpg

#2 - 1988 Robinson Pro As found, virtually factory complete survivor:
https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/37108/dsci399259ed3d2418.jpg
https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/37108/dsci399559ed3d2420.jpg
https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/37108/dsci399659ed3d241f.jpg

#3 - 1986 Elf Mini Cruiser IMO, this is a special survivor.  When I bought it a few years ago, the guy I bought it from was 67 yo, said he raced it in his early-mid 40's.  Sounded like he was real serious about it, and it seemed that he had very carefully hand selected each component for the task.  It sits exactly like it was found, minus a seat change out (had a UNI mini before) and I have the original AM'E grips in good shape, but decided not to ruin them.  Parts list:

-'86 ELF Mini Cruiser F/F
-Bullseye 1st gen cranks, very light
-DK stem with aluminum Quill
-Aluminum CW cruiser bars
-Drilled out seat post
-1st Gen GT hubs hollow axle, or maybe you like Sunlights? 
-Galli road bike headset
-So on so forth

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.

Wow that elf is special. So it came with 2 sets of wheels? I wonder why he didnt get a full size cruiser? He must have been a really lean guy. That wire looks like a old road bike trick or something, i wonder if he was a road bike guy? Very cool

Re: High end race survivors

Here's a great GT survivor I rebuilt for a customer - a true time-machine with really nice parts on it. This was his race bike from the early '80s that he built BITD with chrome Arayas, Bullseye hubs, Profile cranks, Shimano pedals, Hutch pro bars and seat clamp, Kashimax saddle, Oakley O-Wings, DK square-top stem, and Epoch headset. The only repop items I installed during the cleanup-polishing process were the brake cable and tires because he wanted to ride it occasionally.

It came with the GT hubs, which if they ain't nice enough....  I had a CW TFM with the Son-Lite wheels.  Sold the TFM and had to check out the Son-Lites on this ELF for a super high end, very unique race bike.  However, I didn't keep the Son-Lites.  They're now on a ultra exotic bike in OZ.

Oh yeah, said he was like 140# sopping wet and was into road bikes....

Re: High end race survivors

Unsure if this qualifies as high end. But it does as a survivor.

Picked up from the original owner. Still haven’t had a chance to clean/work on it.

Re: High end race survivors

Got this from the original owner, he got into mountain bikes shortly after so it didn’t get much use.

Re: High end race survivors

Just bought and only changed 1 thing so far. Serial #1 D Wholf Hand Painted Lettering. The forks I plan on getting hand lettered as well in the Pro Forx Logo, but to match the frame.
