Re: 82 Diamondback "Eddy King" Replica

Thanks guys..... you can imagine lining up next to this on the gate in 1982!!

Also this is my Spring Build-off submission so if you'd like to throw a vote it's way when voting opens that'd be awesome too!!

Cheers!

Re: 82 Diamondback "Eddy King" Replica

You got my vote Kurt. The one thing that sets this bike OFF are those tires. Im telling you vintage Comp 3 yellow labels are waaaaay harder to find then Comp 2's... But there are MANY awesome and hard to find parts on your build. Big CONGRATS goes to you.

Kurt, Ill keep an eye out for the Haro "1" but what color is the outline? Is it black with the blue outline (I couldnt tell from the pic).
