There are some vintage BMX sites for people that are looking to restore or have old bikes and such, but i dont know of the links to them...

You are mistaken. That is FAR from the best mongoose on the market, but it is better than your shoddy diamondback.

If it has the frame gusset and is not a loop tail, its around 1980, later they lost the gusset and had loop tails.
