1983 Diamond Back II Silver Streak

- SOLD

Picked this one up here on the forum. Used to love these bikes...but damn if they weren't tiny. Actually pretty unrideable for me.

Original except for seatpost, seat, tires, and pedals.  Everything else is right like the factory made it.

Re: 1983 Diamond Back II Silver Streak

actually that very smallish frame was the factor that made me love mine in 86, lol, I was 13 and starting out in freestyle, and most fs frames were longer than these db's, so I ended up learning lots of moves on racing frames, forks and bars, which were also lighter, as I was about 5'4 and not that strong. I started riding fs frames after my growth spurt kicked in, around 88, also loved freestyling on kuwahara novas, lazerlites and survivor, as well as the national panasonic hot rod, which had an euro bottom bracket, good times. that db frame is so short, even at my then short height, I liked to run long hutch type stems and laidback posts. they were perfect for cherry pickers since they were so short, and miami hoppers.
