PRICE DROP. Now just $325 for everything shipped anywhere in the 48 US!!!

1979 Diamondback Pro frame and dual drop-out fork set-up with DB bars, DB stem, and Tioga headset.  Frame and fork have been professionally re-powdered blue and look great.  The stem is a Sugino-made blue anodized DB in good shape but not perfect.  The bars are stamped DB, they were NOS before mounting, and they are mediums with some minor chrome "dusting", which is to say there is some mild oxidization that appears like tiny brown dust spots, but overall the chrome is is fine shape.  The frame's rear dropouts have some wear, but this is a really nice set-up.  I am also including the original DB decals purchased from Retrospect in the UK.  These are not copyright infringements, they are the real deal, with the blue prismatic background.  I just put another set of the same ones on my chrome DB and they look amazing. 

This is a great se-up, with no dents, dings, re-welds, rust, or other major issues.  A very clean, straight package.

Offering everything for $325 shipped anywhere in the 48 US.

I have more photos, just PM if you are interested.

Thanks.

Chris

If only this was a senior pro in the same colour !!
Glws bro nice large pro

Whats the TT length?  Thanks

Hi,  is this color a match to the original 79 DB blue ?  Also, was this frame originally blue?

Thanks!

To tube length is about 19", measuring from center of head tube to center of seat tube. OS-DB.net specs for the 1979 Pro suggest this is consistent with their measurement of 18 7/8. And, according to them, the 79s were available in chrome, red and blue frames. I don't know what the original color of this frame was. I bought it re-powdered blue. I would not call it electric blue as the site does, or as DB did, but it's a really nice blue, probably a shade darker than the original, but looks brighter in the light and with the blue prismatic decals I have will really pop.

I have over $500 into this set-up. Great deal here for you DB lovers!

Thanks for the interest.
