how old is this diamondback








its a diamondback nini viper serial kw015985 and has a california sticker on it, as well as a sticker from the bike shop it was purchased at, it also has team racing decals as well, is this anything more than the standard mini viper from the 80's ?

I'm guessing 1985, right before the day-glo colours kicked in, and the logo reminds me of that era also.

i was thinking the same, but the early ones and proto-types sierals are marked under the crank, this one has two numbers bi0262 and kw015985 it has race team and bmx tube stickers, it has the diamond cutout on the drop outs, the old style pedals, yet it has a coster brake, a lun-chi sprocket, a orange neck cap, a bike shop sticker from pre 90's and the angle and style of the front of the frame by the forks seems newer than 80's I'm confused
