1983 Diamond Back Turbo Lite

Built as close to the one in the BMXAction write up.

Can't have a DB collection without their factory mini, loved this one because it had the gold decals available to the general public.  I built this one as close to the one in the September 1983 BMXaction, except for the seat/seatpost combo.  They used a traditional DB Kashimax Saddle and fluted post, I used a Uni-Mini

Awesome little bike! I bought one NOS out of a shop in 1990. Had to sell it a few years ago. It's listed on here in the DB section. Wish I still had it, but there you go...

Killer build dude.


I never log off and I had to disable my screen saver because it was causing problems , making me have to restart my computer every time it kicked on. Please keep that in mind if you message me and I don't reply back right away. Thanks.

When I die, I want to go peacefully like my grandfather did–in his sleep. Not yelling and screaming like the passengers in his car.

Re: 1983 Diamond Back Turbo Lite

Anyone here that has the decals as a Photoshop file?
