Old Classic

ELF stands for Extra Light Frame. A company making bmx race bikes in the early 1990s when full chromoly tubing was still popular for pro racing before alloy took over. They were great bikes so if you have one it's quite a treat.

The popular ones seem to be the double cross. Double chain stays. Those bring decent money but are mid school.

As with other bikes, parts are a huge factor of value or desire.

I remember hearing about ELF bikes when I first started riding BMX.. it was always something like "I know this guy who has an ELF" and we would ride over to try and check it out.

Waaaay late to the party, but Elf made great racing frames. High quality brand.

I used to have a ELF cruiser with the double tubes. I ordered my ELF with double thick drop-outs. I won lots of races on that bike.
