Lookin sweet! I know where to get a sexy JDM taillight for the 87’. I plan on getting one for mine once the 96’ build is done. Im actually considering a full JDM body kit since they look so good. ;)

Nah, that one is for 94-01...the 87’ is a body style only made for one year. Im talking about the CORRECT JDM taillight and bodykit that fits the 87’ only.

PM if you can.


Meatball or anyone for that matter could you please post some info/post on the Af16 in to 87 Elite S.

Ive tried searching but can find anthing besides AF05 into spree etc...

Basically trying to see if the swap is possible without major Cutting/welding


As far as the Elite S, Im 215-220 lbs I hit 40 mph with ease and 45 downhill.

The stock af16 will only give you 40 on flats and 45 downhill just as the AF05 does. In stock form their performance is quite similar. The advantage of the af16 is if you plan to modify.

So my plan was to use the af05 in the 87 spree and have a kick * daily scoot for short commutes etc..and put the af16 in the elite and go crazy (modifying) or as far as my wallet allows. Or should I just leave the elite alone and put the af16 in the spree. I was told the af05 fits under the Spree plastics nice and OEM like.

Couple things to consider...planning to “go crazy” when you think of the finished product. Would you like to go 60-70mph on a tiny Spree or a larger Elite? Ive done both and must say that either one is sketchy at those speeds. The Spree being MUCH more spooky and has the feel of bombing your little sisters bicycle down a big hill with your legs out. I cruise 60 everywhere on my af16’d Se50 and its not bad.

The Af05 swap into a Spree is fairly straight forward with the only required welding is a relocation tab for the shock mount. The motor mount (sourced from the Se50) just needs to be cut (check wiki) with a chopsaw or even a hacksaw in a pinch. Ive used a 4” handheld grinder with a cutting wheel before but that can be inaccurate and dangerous in inexperienced hands...the biggest fitment issue you’ll have is the massive Se50 airbox. It simply will not fit with Spree plastics. A smal UNI pod filter will tuck in there great but then you’ll have a can-o-worms open with tuning the stock carb to run properly with it. It CAN be done but took me weeks of trial/error with trying different restricting methods to the UNI and many main jet swaps. Also, say goodbye to the plastic rear mudflap since the tire rubs it and it must be cut/removed.
