1999 Diamondback Viper

1999 Diamondback Viper

My first thrift store find and the first in my collection of bikes.

So, I started collecting bikes about 2 months ago and I'm up to 3 bikes now. Initially I just bought  this one with the idea that it might be worth something or good enough to keep for my 6 year old son when he's a little older down the road. I rode in the 1980's, and although this isn't that old it did take me back. I had a gary turner with plain black stickers and "gary turner" spelled out. I'm thinking this was one of the first and wish I still had it.
So, this is a 1999 Diamondback Viper, just the way I found it minus some dirt. I'm not into restoring them, but I highly respect those who do. I like the fact that it seems to be all stock. It rides nicely for guy in his 40's. From what I can tell it's not the most sought after bike by any means, but I like it and that's what counts. I will be posting my next 2 thrift store finds (which are some of the most sought after).
*SOLD*

Re: 1999 Diamondback Viper

would you be able to snap some pics of the wheels... the hubs and rims, specifically. I'm trying to find out as much as I can about these rims...

Re: 1999 Diamondback Viper

These are not the same rims and hubs you have based on your photos and what I see on the bike. Do you still want pics?

sorry, it's up in the attic at the moment- keep checking back or keep asking and I'll try to get it

I assume you're asking about the top tube length , right?

Re: 1999 Diamondback Viper

I'm not sure kind of confuse about the hold tube length and the size of the headsets. Any info will really help me out because my headset won't fit and i don't know why. lol But i want it to have threadless fork on my DB like yours.
If you can help me out.
thanks-david
