Sir, it would be a disservice to not use those decals, if decals are to be used. I like it with the blue, personally preference, just like the seat yeah. Blue and ano blue was where it was at back in the bay imo


had a couple dreams, turned into reality

Little clean up on the chrome with some nice parts would work for me. If looking to totally redo it just to change it big time ,Turbo tribute is one option.  But some of the early candy red and blue DB's look awesome with the right parts.
Candy red and chrome would be my pick.

That's sounds sweet

It looks pretty good the way it is. I would lose the seat, tires and grips. Go with a black suede Kashimax Aero seat, Black Comp 3 skinwall tires (big / small combo), a chrome or black Dia-Compe MX-1000 rear brake, and some black grips.

Its the less expensive way, as I already have a set if black brakes, tires & grips, will just need the seat

Killer chrome all the way around. Vector cruiser bars , suede seat , Oakley B1B grips in gray and black , MX 1000 brake and tech 3 lever. Dia compe 2 pc seat clamp black. HL cranks with Hutch pedals. Chromed out Araya rims with son lite hubs.

Try and find what decals it would have had on it or go with the prismatic ones.

This is a bike that is worth the cash and effort.

I like it, it will be a hunt for parts & Cash Lol but like you said the bike is worth it

If it was mine:
I'd leave the chrome as it is (NO re-chroming), just clean up the chrome as best as it can get with elbow grease.
Switch the blue tires to black, throw some re-isssue F-1's on it, any DB stamped stem in black, or gold, to match the rims.
Maybe put a DB seat clamp on it too, seat option is personal preference for comfort.
Bloody nice ride there, totally RARE those ones! cool
I'm a big fan of survivors, love this one. cool

Thanks, yes it's a sweet bike & Rare, just seen Only one in here

Formula 1 decals with gold parts like King Stinger was suggesting.  Snakebellies are a must on this snake.

Re: Time to Redo this 1984 Diamondback = Rare 24"

Thanks to all who helped out with ideas. I've done a bit of homework on it & spoke to Mr. DB himself Harry Leary back in Dec but what he told me was basically the same I've been told by many, that these were made for team members and less than a dozen were made and only 7-9 were given to the team riders.
These one has the baseball stamp and was the 2nd or 3rd one made in production, but believe that ONLY less of a hand full exist. cool
