1983 Diamond Back II Silver Streak

My dad bought this for me brand new in '83 and was customized by the bike shop with a GT lay-back seat post, black Johar Cal-Lite pads, and ACS Z-Rims. The only things I added bitd was a front brake and a Haro 1B numberplate.  Kept it in the garage since the 80's and hauled it out in 2009 for a clean-up. Only replaced the tires, frame pads, grips, brake cables and seatpost - everything else is original. Swapped out the layback with a straight version because I never really liked the layback look (on this bike). Still need a stem pad to call it done.
