1983 Diamond Back "Meanstreak" MTB
I salvaged a Diamond Back MTB "Meanstreak" frame and fork and headset. Don't have pictures yet of it.
Couldn't save much of the bike. Salvaged the frame with fork and headset together, the brakes, shifters and front and rear derailleur (very good quality Shimano "mountech").
As a beginner I researched and found out that this is a 1983 bike approx. One of the earliest MTB's I guess.
It's all made in Japan. The frame is built completely lugged and CroMo. The frame is in good condition mechanically. Nice piece to look at and think it is one of the early MTB's.
I was thinking if I should turn it back into a MTB or make a roadbike style single speed out of it.......
The chain stays are kind of MTB'ish, wide.
Will post pix soon.
Anyone interested in the LA area in this frame? I would be happy to sell it to a MTB enthusiast. I am more a Road Bike enthusiast.
The rear drop outs are sugino "plated" (let's name it this way). The headset is Tange sealed. The frame is black and the lugging has white lines. Looks really great. The meanstreak logo is scratched off kinda.
What do you think about this bike?
