Hi everybody,

This is my latest purchase, I got it from great TC member Besty22. Thanks Chris, for parting with this beauty my friend !



Most of you will know that this is very rare, it was a Japanese exclusive spare rollcage available along the green one.


I have been lucky to get the Green one years ago when I started restoring Kyoshos. Then at the time where just TC member Rockthemonkeys had a yellow one I really wanted to find the last one missing in my collection, the elusive Yellow Cage.


A few lucky members found theirs while I didn't, I wasn't jealous at all, nono really why do you say that???

Anyway, fast forward and now my collection is complete. Happy Bunny me is !

I got the car nearly finished and just replaced/added a few NIB parts I had, like front universal joints, antiroll bars, thicker front aluminium guard (bought it new and noticed that it was twice the thickness of all the others I have), ball ends and rods, new screw set etc.


Also it is fitted with a rare motor, the Le Mans 240E. You can see a bit of this Motor behind the Gold motor guard. It has a white sticker but the lettering is grey instead of the black+white+red scheme of the 'E' motors (360, 480)



I will have to make some good pictures on the beach with it and it's sisters.

I love Javelins, I'm Chain Driven after all ;)

Very nice looking javelin. The correct wheels and tires look great. And that chrome wing makes the whole car look fantastic. I Am a huge fan of the javelin. I own several pristine examples. But I do not have a built yellow one. I also still need an NIB green one. To complete my collection of 3 new builds and 3 NIB cages. One day.
