1983 Diamond Back Silver Streak

1983 Diamondback Silver Streak

Year/model is a guess based on forum feedback and serial #. Dressed in Senior Pro decals. I bought this years ago on eBay as a near-complete bike (minus wheels & chain) for under $50 with the frame being the only Diamondback part. I've changed out many of the parts which came with it but kept the fork, cranks/pedals, seat post/clamp, and rear brake caliper.

Re: 1983 Diamond Back Silver Streak

**UPDATE**

I finally ditched the cheap tires/spokes and added some OGK mags with black gumwalls. Let me know what you all think. Thanks!

Re: 1983 Diamond Back Silver Streak

Thanks, OS4L!

I just bought these custom black/silver decals on eBay. As badly as I wish they were on the bike now, I'm gonna have to leave the blue ones on. They are too new for me to tear off. I wish the black ones would have been around last year!mad

Re: 1983 Diamond Back Silver Streak

Here's a visual evolution of this bike. The wheels/tires took some ugly turns along the way, but everything worked out in the end. cool
