1980 Diamond Back Large Pro
Bought this bike from eBay in April 2009 as an "unfinished project."
The seller had "sanded" back the frame and bars, ready for re-chroming.
They had a Diamond Back stamped yellow Kashimax (that I have stashed away now), Tracer cranks, a few levers, and a single gold Araya 7X rim, but no forks.
Seeing the theme was to be going yellow and I had most of the parts, I stayed with that colour.
So I had no choice but to get the frame and bars re-chromed, this is the only bike I own that has been "fully restored" I guess.
This one was my "carpet queen" I guess, started out life with me running gold Araya 7X rims (a set I bought from eBay) and yellow Kenda Comp III's.
Tracer cranks that just "gave up," used the yellow stamped Diamond Back Kashimax for a while, had black and yellow chequered Flite pads on it too.
Found a NOS set of TRX forks from Universe Cycles in Parramatta, NSW, Australia too. Snapped those up quickly.
Bought black Sugino Diamond Back stamped stem from eBay as well.
Rode it a few times but didn't really like the way it was as it was sitting.
Decided to make it more of a "rider" and I switched to Redline Flite cranks and run re-issue Tuff 2's.
This is how it is now.
