1987 Diamond Back Viper
Another special build entered into my "Friends" collection
Since I have gotten back into BMX, it has been my mission to try and find the bikes that me and my friends rode back in the 1980's. Today, I am lucky enough to enter yet another one into that group. I picked up this viper from a guy semi locally. It was all original and at the time was a coaster wheel bike. I broke it down and gave it a much needed CA bath. The decals were shot so I removed those as well. I found a set of KK hubs I got from a fellow member here on the museum and converted them from coaster to free wheel. I put it back together, but added a set of re-pop tires, AM'E grips and some fresh decals (I used some Cool Streak decals as I could not find Vipers). I am very happy with the way it turned out and hope you all enjoy it too.
