1983 Diamond Back Turbo Lite

Built as close to the one in the BMXAction write up.

Can't have a DB collection without their factory mini, loved this one because it had the gold decals available to the general public.  I built this one as close to the one in the September 1983 BMXaction, except for the seat/seatpost combo.  They used a traditional DB Kashimax Saddle and fluted post, I used a Uni-Mini
