1988 Diamond Back Strike Zone

1988 Diamond Back Strike Zone

Another one on my list of "Most Wanted"

I got this one off of ebay a while back, wasn't a major score, but I didn't care....I just wanted it. Always loved the design of the seat stays and the Woody Itson cool factor! The bike arrived in a box full of holes and It was in a sad state of neglect. No problem, I like to restore survivors.I'm beyond stoked as it turned out great and it's almost a time capsule with only a few add-ons and replacement parts kept to a minimum.Grips were replaced and as I always do with the parts I replace, I boxed up the OG mushroom type grips along with the spokes. All ball bearings cleaned and re greased, including the one in the pedals.I replaced the grip tape on the fork standers and put on a set of survivor ACS RL Edge tires I had laying around.The chrome spokes were done so I replaced them, but kept the OG nipples. That's about it I think, I like saving parts so with the few exceptions above, everything else is original to the bike.As always, I included a few pics of how it looked before I worked on it.Hope you guys like it as much as I do!
