1983 Diamond Back Silver Streak

1983 Diamond Back Silver Streak

My low budget "Mix n Match" bike.

I always wanted a bike that i can just ride without worrying about getting scratches, or breaking something. But most importantly its got to be old school and cheap. So i went on Ebay and won this Diamond Back frame for a great deal. I loved the diamond plate gusset towards the headtube and the looptail back. It became a fun project hunting for parts here and there. So far ive added red dia compe 1000 brakes & lever, some old faded red ukai wheels with chair hubs, Mongoose handlebars, GT layback seatpost, some fresh ame grips & compe 3 style tires. I might be swapping the wheels soon for some red or black tuffs though.

*Updated 10-1-08 with Tuff II wheels, Red Tires & Grips, Diamond Back Padset, & Haro Number Plate. (this bike went from a "beater" to a "head turner" in the streets)

Re: 1983 Diamond Back Silver Streak

this bike reminds me of the time i first french kissed a girl. i had one of these bikes or it was actually similar to it. i bought one that looks like this in fedco in cerritos.

anyways, i was in 4th grade and my classmate who was female at the time wanted to go to her house and play with her brothers nintendo. i was on the minus world in super mario bros then all of a sudden she tried to stick her tongue down my throat. it was the weirdest feeling in the world.

Out of your whole collection this one is my favorite. Especially with the new makeover.


Let's go ride to the store and buy some Cherry clan and Lemon heads. Remember to bring quarters for Gauntlet.
