Re: 1978 Diamond Back MX

Damn!!!  Love it!  Where did you find those whitewalls?  I love how you incorporated red, but not too much red.  Hope you don't mind if I use a few of your ideas on a project in the future. This is one of the first bikes i've seen here that really has inspired me.  Thanks for posting this.
