Re: 1980 Diamond Back Large Pro

What a great looking example. Excellent color combo


Newbie...
No front brakes, except for freestyle.
Adjust your seat and bars, so it looks like you actually ride.
Use cruiser bars on cruisers.
No laybacks on cruisers either, jeez.

Re: 1980 Diamond Back Large Pro

Actually super wild how I found this.  A good friend that Id known for a few years through seeing a buncha live shows (concerts.  Im a live music junkie) together was finally at my house one day for the first time and he saw the bikes in my shed.  He was like: "hey I have my childhood bike and Id rather have a beach cruiser".....we made an instant deal.
