1982 Diamond Back II Silver Streak

A great survivor bike

I have just finished restoring this bike. I cleaned up the frame and other chrome parts using just a bit of fine steel wool and machine oil - worked a treat!

You can see more before and after images at my personal site at www.osbmxdb.com.

Original Parts

  • DB bars and stem
  • Takagi 175mm cranks
  • Suzue high flange hubs - spin perfect
  • Black Araya 7x rims in very good condition (original but re-anodised)
  • Dia-compe brakes and frame clips
  • Kashimax Aero seat (with new stickers)
  • SR seat clamp (original but polished as it was scratched)
  • Sugino chainring (original but re-anodised as it was faded)

New parts

  • Repop stickers (decided to go silver instead of the original gold)
  • Repop pads
  • Faun F1 grips
  • New black MKS pedals
  • New black fluted seat post
  • New chrome plated double butted spokes
  • Rainbow label Comp III tyres
I have tried to keep it as original as possible.
