This will be my last bump before trying other venues,...this is the last chance to get this at a great price.
I'd also like to remind any interested parties that Paypal does cover your purchases with the same great buyer protection you'd get on ebay,
so buy with confidence after reading my thorough and accurate description. And feel free to ask questions before making any purchasing commitments. Thanks, -Mickie
Freshly overhauled, 1987 Diamondback Cool Streak. This bike has mostly original parts, and is in pretty good condition, there are some chips and scratches in the paint. This frame-set is free of any cracks, dents or repairs. Features Mike Dominguez signature bars, a one year only style with brake cable loops. Real nice stem, with hollow stem bolt. Fork features standing platforms built in. Fork does have a natural rake, it's not bent. Nice chrome on the headset. Seat post chrome is scratchy and hazy, but presentably shiny. Nice DB seat clamp, thing's embossed with 3 logos! The clamps binder bolt could use replacing though, the allen points are not so crisp. Nice clean factory crank assembly. All the bearings in this bike were just cleaned thoroughly and re-packed(including Crank, Fork, Wheels. Excluding pedals.). I also waxed every inch of paint with the Meguire's Deep Crystal wax system, basically it's more like hand buffing than just simply waxing, for the ultimate shine old paint has to offer. Both wheels were just completely re-built, the bike was originally a coaster and now sports a Shimano freewheel and hub, very nice. I even added a few finishing touches, the "smoke" colored chain-guard to utilize the frames tabs, and some rear pegs cut in length to match the front standers. A new fresh white brake cable, Teflon lined housing. The Huffy seat has a few tiny scuffs around the back edge. The plastic bar ends are a little chipped up. Tires have lots of life in them, virtually no signs of wear on them, they are newer and not dry or cracking. In summary,..this is a sweet old school ride that has plenty of 80's era style to it. Love the "Ransom note" decals, they were a very short term thing for DB.
