1983 Diamond Back Harry Leary Turbo

Stolen 2014

This one was found by Jeff Haney at the wheels and things bike shop right before they closed its business op, It was assembled into a complete bike in NOS condition; then exchanged hands on the mid-late 1990's to his brother Richie Haney who sold it to Carlos Ruiz in 2004 (Carlos sold some of the parts to somebody in the OS-DB forum) and then sold the remainder to Juan Mattos in 2007. I purchased the Turbo (not complete)from Juan in August 2009 & completed the build with mostly nos parts in November 2009. (seat, rear tire & bottom bracket are used) still searching for a NOS seat!

Re: 1983 Diamond Back Harry Leary Turbo

Wow, I once had the opportunity to purchase this very bike back in 1993 from Sandy Finkleman while it sat in the back office of Wheels n' Things still in its original box.  Asking price? $1000.  That was a bit of money back then for me, so I passed on it. After reading the history, I know this is the same bike.

Re: 1983 Diamond Back Harry Leary Turbo

Such a shame that the bike was apparently stolen in 2014! mad

Any details on what happened or updates since? Hope there is a reunion and happy ending for it...

Fingers Crossed and Best of Luck! hmm
