1999 Diamondback Viper
My first thrift store find and the first in my collection of bikes.
So, I started collecting bikes about 2 months ago and I'm up to 3 bikes now. Initially I just bought this one with the idea that it might be worth something or good enough to keep for my 6 year old son when he's a little older down the road. I rode in the 1980's, and although this isn't that old it did take me back. I had a gary turner with plain black stickers and "gary turner" spelled out. I'm thinking this was one of the first and wish I still had it.
So, this is a 1999 Diamondback Viper, just the way I found it minus some dirt. I'm not into restoring them, but I highly respect those who do. I like the fact that it seems to be all stock. It rides nicely for guy in his 40's. From what I can tell it's not the most sought after bike by any means, but I like it and that's what counts. I will be posting my next 2 thrift store finds (which are some of the most sought after).
