Kozumi.  It's all there, just got to find my ID sheet... per se

Pretty sure that's 1980

Hutch Fun Facts: All main line Hutch's with digits only S/N (no letters or baseballs) on the rear drop outs were US made and had their dropouts stamped between late '83 and '86.  Obviously the frame manufacture would occur slightly after that, even if they just threw 'em in a bucket randomly.  There is an obvious date code in that the first 2 digits seem to be the month and the 3rd digit is pretty obviously the last digit of the year running from '83-'86.

Re: Diamondback Identifacation ?

Yes, made by Koizumi, Japan (because of the "baseball"-symbol) wink

My suggestion is "April 1980", because of the leading "0" (zero) followed by "D" as the fourth letter of the alphabet.
Just like here:

Or this one:

Maybe a model "Large Pro" smile

Double dropout on the fork, right!?
Like this "Large Pro" out of 1980:

Re: Diamondback Identifacation ?

Unfortunately there is no hint inside the serial relating to the partucular model... 

Think you have to use the museum yourself by comparing the posted Diamond Back models restricted to the year 1980 with your model:

Alternatifely and/or in addition you could provide us with more photos showing the whole bike wink

Re: Diamondback Identifacation ?

Re: Diamondback Identifacation ?

Based on the remaining head tube decal I would say "Large Pro"...

Re: Diamondback Identifacation ?

Well, from the box section, I'd say Large Pro or Silver Streak
