1983 Diamond Back Silver Streak

I remember the day I picked this one out........

I believe I was in 5th or 6th grade at the time. This is the third and last bike I owned as a kid. I went with my parents to the local bike shop 3 months before Christmas that year. I picked it out and we put it on lay-away for my Christmas gift. I remember in the following weeks buying a Zeronine number plate and putting it on my shelf, displayed while waiting for (at the time), the best Christmas ever. This bike was raced at several tracks in New Jersey....Washington Park in Pequannock....Oakland....The Tennis Courts in Wayne....Braddock in North Bergen. Fun times.

October 2013 : This bike has been dismantled for a year or so while I collected parts to build it back right. In the process now.
January 2014 : Finishing this up for the Spring build off.
February 2014 : Finished for Spring build off.

It once looked like this. With the Pro Class wheels and more modern stuff for my son to ride over 3 years ago. Check out that cool Orbit headset. I always liked those.

Re: 1983 Diamond Back Silver Streak

Very nice bike. Funny, I had a 83 silver streak new, and mine came with KKT pedals like yours, snake belly tires and the same chain ring. Mine also had silver Suzue high flange hubs and silver Araya rims, but mine just had the regular Aero seat with the diamond back sticker on the back.

I am getting close to finishing mine. Hopefully I can find the chain ring and the Sugino "Diamondback " neck
