My Diamondback Viper 84'

Bought the frame & forks from the US with the intention of building it using all the other parts i had lying around (then ended up buying a load of DB parts for it!). I know it's not a HLT but i love it!  :)

Personally think it needs a chrome spider but other than mate it looks sweet.  :daumenhoch:

Great looking bike matey. I normally don't like a black spider and didn't even notice till Nick mentioned it, but I think it looks ok on this.

Stunning build.  :coolsmiley:

Don't see that many DB around. Even though shed loads would have been sold BITD.  :-\  :daumenhoch:

Gorgeous bike.

I had a 84 First Gen. Found it way too small to ride though

I'm not very tall and i found it difficult to ride comfortably until i changed the seat post to a layback, now it's okay (bars are still a bit on the small side though) but these diamondbacks are definitely not great if your six foot something!  :LolLolLolLol:
