1984 Diamondback 24

1984 Diamondback 24

Extremely rare.....Quite possibly the only one left in existance.

This extremely rare Diamond Back cruiser belongs to a friend of mine, The legendary Glenn Rawson. It is in mint condition with the original gold Team stickers. It has no serial number. The ultimate holy grail for all Diamond Back collectors!

Re: 1984 Diamondback 24

Glenn Rawson, The owner of the Diamond Back cruiser was a team rider for Diamond Back Australia and was given this as a replacement for the GT cruiser he was riding at the time...Because he was a Diamond Back team rider his GT was stickered up as a Diamond Back because back then Diamond Back never officially made a cruiser.
To my knowledge it is the only one left (I think there was only ever 3 made) and Glenns one is in mint condition...The drop outs barely have a mark on them and inside the gusset is super clean and has never seen a single bit of rust.
Just knowing it is probably the only one of it's kind left in existence makes seeing it in person such an amazing thing.
