1980 Diamond Back Large Pro

Restored Diamond Back Large Pro

Purchased this frame nearly two years ago and wasn't sure what to do with it. Liked the larger geometry of the frame but the chrome was in poor shape and even after an acid bath was clearly beyond saving. Decided to go for a white/black colour scheme. Used etch primer to help the paint stick to the chrome which was sand papered down to remove as much as possible and get a smooth finish. Still looking for a few more diamond back bits, pedals and cranks but happy with current look.  Now sold.

Well well well!  Another quality build to add to the Bilton stable!
I love the B/W colour way.  It reminds me of the DP Firebird that I had in the eighties!
As per all your builds,  top quality finish and magnificent attention to detail.
A sympathetic restoration project that has done the Diamond Back Large Pro proud!!
Roll on the next project! Well done!!
