1983 Diamond Back Turbo Lite

1983 Diamondback Turbolite

Found this as a NOS kit in the UK - came with the frame, fork, bars, headset, stem and brakes.
Sourced as much NOS stuff as I could get. Always seem to miss the Suntour XCII's so just polished up a very nice set until I jag some NOS bangers.
The wheels are as NOS as you can get and still have the original Diamondback factory price tag .....$39.95!!!
Not sure what it is about this bike, but it is one of my all time fav's....probably the bike I really wanted BITD but just couldn't afford!!
