Thanks don't think I'd seen this one before-- someday I'll come across a Diamond Road to join my DT & DFDs!

I have a Diamond Formula that I bought new and I still ride it quite a bit. Mine came in a Peach Pearl that I didnít really care for, it is red now. It is light for a 25Ē frame and just rides perfectly. Of course it was my first serious road bike after riding a Schwinn Varsity for years, it will always be close to my heart even though now I can afford much higher end bikes. I saved all the Japanese components when I changed it over to Campagnolo. It was my first Eroica bike . I have thousands of miles on my Kabuki and it was my transportation for more than a couple of years in the late seventies to early eighties. Thank you for posting this, Kabuki Joe

The Kabuki head badge draws me in every time.
One of my favorites.
