1983 Diamond Back Harry Leary Turbo

My Holy Grail

Here we have a 1983 Harry Leary Turbo in Survivor condition, I have just received a set of HLT cranks which I will be putting on in due course. I have always wanted one of these and now I have it, will be building it up very soon but finding nos parts for a HLT is near enough impossible, so if anybody has any please drop us an e-mail.

Suprised that you haven't got one in your awesome collection. Taken me 25years to get hold of one, now just need the parts to build it up

Re: 1983 Diamond Back Harry Leary Turbo

Do you have the turbo dust caps for the cranks? I have 1. The cranks and the neck show up on ebay, the seat and seatpost is another story....

Awesome.  That is my grail as well.  However I am not willing to sell every other bike I own to build one:o

Re: 1983 Diamond Back Harry Leary Turbo

that is definitely the holy grail of DB's, can't wait to see the progress on this bike.  If you need new decals they have a set on retrospect. The turbo cranks find is just as amazing! Good luck and thanks for help

Man, this is such a sweet set-up.

A good friend of mine BITD had one of these decked out with VERY chrome parts. It was blow-away cool and drew stares whenever he cruised by.

I am looking forward to seeing this complete. WOW! Lucky man.
