Re: 1999 Diamond Back Venom

If that is a Venom XX it is not a 1999, I owned the 1999 model which had a large gusset connecting the head tube and top and bottom tube but it is possibly a 1998. The Venom XX model is extremely rare and I made a mistake selling my frame back when I was 16 for a measly $50 on ebay.... It retailed for $499, came with 3 piece cranks, 8 piece bars, and araya 7x rims.... The bars instantly began getting copied by another manufacturer who sold the "prison" bars for like $100. I think I still have my bars in storage! lol

If you don't like it, don't buy it...

Old School to New School, ridden it all, but I guess my forte is that Mid School stuff...

I am looking for an orignal Ultra Box build, PM and let me know...

+1 not a 99,  as stated they had a huge gusset at the headtube.  matches my 97/8 venoms decals (have three, two venom x's and one venom xx).  Got a feeling its a db venom x that has been redecaled,  as the venom xx's had slasher hubs (couldn't tell from your pics for sure if you had them or not), and all the db venom xx's I have ever seen have 990 mounts on the front fork. 
will post up pics for reference in a few.
