After starting to ride my Alpinestars Cro-mega LX, I've been more and more interested in retro bikes. Last week I came home to my parents place for winter break and remembered this old Diamond Back bmx bike I used to have as a kid. I spent some time digging it out of the garage and this is what I found:

I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out what year/model it is? It's got a bit of rust on the back of it but I'm thinking of cleaning it up. I saw a similar thread and I just dont know the quality of the hardware on the bike right now, etc. Anyways, hope it's something good.

Thanks!

I haven't really decided yet. I've had this bike since I was about 5, and I'm 21 now. I'm also 6' tall and it's a bit small to ride around right now. I might clean it up and keep it but I'm considering selling it (my dad is encouraging me to clean out the garage). It's got a lot of memories though and just riding it yesterday was a blast. The thing is incredibly light!

Thanks for the info on that other site, I'll snoop around and maybe post my bike on there.

Yeah totally. I'm in the US though. How much you think this is worth?
