Mystery Score. Let's see how good you are. Tell me what it is.

Because I have no idea what it is.

Mystery Score. Anybody got any ideas? I looked through 100 pages of bikes and didn't see one that matched. It's really cool though. Everything looks period from maybe late 70's ??? Lots of cool parts, but the frame is ?????

That one has lotsa gussets too but they're different. This one is not a looptail, and the brake bridge is a tube and not flat steel.

Nice parts, ugly welds. Was that paint brushed on?

It looks like an Ashtabula to me (except for the front gusset).

It's a 1976 Sun Cycle Company "Black Diamond". It was built in Astabula Ohio by Ashtabula. The frame weighs 6lb and it's mild steel and MIG welded.  see BMX News article / ad at the bottom of this thread.
