1981 Diamond Back Medium Pro

First ever build. All original or NOS parts except the grips, tires and cables.

Bought the frame off the bay then the search began. It has taken 2 and half months from start to finish and I'm pretty happy with the result.

I love the look of old school Redlines!  Where did you find most of the parts?  Local bike shops?

The " Roll eyes " emoji is from the same 2 guys that hold a grudge and seem to think they are better/smarter than me. They're just bitter. I could post just about anything and them two guys will hate on me. I don't post much these days but if you need anything at all send me a PM. I'm glad to help.

Incredible build, just beautiful!!????


Raced NBL tracks in the 80's East Coast. Boston is home base. Wide ranging love for all things BMX. I have great memories and continue to make them. Faster than greased moose poop.
