In 1981 the Diamond Cruiser came in one size and one color, men's 21" in black. The price written in my catalog is $174.95. I don't know if that's retail or what the bike shop was charging for them.

Wheel/Tire size: 26x2.125 Gumwall - 36 x 105 spokes
Braking System: Alloy side-pull caliper
Gears: 5sp dérailleur w/stem shifter 14 - 28T cluster
Crankset: One piece 6 1/2" hot forged 48T

The 1984 catalog shows the Black basic model plus a 'deluxe' Concord Blue model with chrome fenders. Sizes were men's 21" and 23", plus ladies 19".
Frame is 1020 steel
Shifter: 5 sp thumb
Brakes: Alloy side pull
Cluster" 14 - 32
Crankset: 46T
Stem: Ross 4 bolt
Handlebar: Cruiser ('81 had risers)
Hubs: Heavy duty BMX
Rims: Heavy duty steel
Same tires
Cushion grips
Sorry, no prices in this catalog
