1980 Diamond Back Large Pro

Pro Kit

This is one of two, I used to see two almost identical bikes (along with a Turbo and Silver Streak)  at I.Martin imports on Beverly Blvd. when my Dad would occasionally stop by with me while riding in his Langendorf Bakery truck.  Sandy Finkleman said these were called "Pro Kit", a frame and fork set that you built to your heart's desire, but I know that they were sold as complete bikes with gold components.
