Re: 1982 Diamond Back Senior Pro

I wish I could keep them all! Thanks for the Feedback, I had fun building it. This is what I remember Diamondbacks looking like in our neighborhood back in the day!!!! The chrome gleamed, ano parts everywhere, Cal Lites and 3 piece cranks...I had to build one!

I have a handful of the chain protectors still NOS in the bag... I was starting to think no one else remembered these things, I knew guys that had them in the 80's and always thought they were kinda cool.
Thanks,
Bri

Re: 1982 Diamond Back Senior Pro

WOW, great looking Bike. The color scheme is well balanced. You did a great job restoring it. Do you have any pic of what it looked like before you re did it?
.Forgot to mention the chainguard.. I forgot about those until I saw it. I had black one on my DB back in 83, although it did last long, but it was cool when they first came out.

Re: 1982 Diamond Back Senior Pro

I sooo want one of these. I have a line on one locally but he is hesitant to give it up.


I get this question often so here it is to save everyone time. I do not have any Mongoose DMC decals left. I was lucky enough to find a small bunch of NOS decal sets in an old bike shop that no longer exists and I have since sold them all. Sorry. I wish you all the best of luck with your DMC builds.

Yeah, It was a really fun project! I thought it turned out really nice! I sold it to fund other projects.
