1983 Diamond Back Silver Streak

1983 Diamond Back Silver Streak

one of my childhood bikes that was nabbed BITD is finally recreated!

found a complete survivor on ebay. it was all there with the exception of updated brakes (had newer chrome dia-compe MX 901).
my old bike had the DB 3 piece suginos. this one had the one piecers but i found a pair of the 3 piece (thanks polanco). also added GT pro bars, GT laid back post, tuf-neck stem, haro flex fighter, mitsuboshi comp IIIs, ame rounds, black dia-compe MX 900 caliper, tech2 lever, kool stop continental brake pads and suntor XCIIs.
still looking for a  black zeronine plate.
UPDATE I decided to make a proper expert racer. The laidback seatpost was starting to bug me on such a small frame. Since I had pics of it with GT pro bars and laidback post (like when I was a kid) I decided to change it up. Cut the flex fighter down to 1", added CW expert bars, Ame bubble font tris, Robinson straight seatpost, and Unicanitor saddle.

Re: 1983 Diamond Back Silver Streak

sorry to hear about that.
maybe that's why nobody bid on it...
i guess he didn't want to ship it to France.
if it makes you feel any better he took forever to ship to me.
