1979 Diamond Back Senior Pro

Typical Build

I'm sorry for breaking the rules, this bike was part of my exclusive Diamond Back collection, a collection Sandy Finkleman was able to see at Gonzo's right before he passed.  I don't have the serial, but I know from being a Diamond Back fan how to read the Koizumi made Diamond Backs and it was a 79, and it was mine.   Would be a shame not to be able to share this photo.
