Very nice restore job. I had this model bike when I was 15. I saved up for 6 months to buy it.

Re: 1980 Diamond Back Large Pro

The bike looks cool but it would be nice to see it in front of a different background. The graphiti mural has so much going on and so many colors that the bike seems to get lost in it. The bike itself is pretty cool though. Nice job.
