I am new to 'forums' so hopefully this is in the right place!!

I have a Diamondback Arrival which I had from new and raced in the early 90's. Unfortunately I had it re-sprayed in a different finish. I now wish to restore the bike back to original, or as close as, but I am struggling to find any catalogues or pictures. The bike was a superb ride and I felt better geometry than the later Axis bikes I raced.

I am sure it is the 1990 one as I have a couple of the 1991 catalogues which show a different range.

The 1990 Arrival was only available in limited numbers and sizes and hence I think they are a bit of a rarety. The bike was originally black with the white spangle paint runs over it. (looked a bit like marble)

Any pictures of a 1990 Apex or Axis would also help so I can work out the style of the decals.

I think the rims were originally black RM-20's

Can anyone help?
Many thanks, I look forward to receiving any replies.....
