Very early Alu mtb - Diamondback's first (unless it's the 88! Frames appear the same and this has been resprayed) and equivalent to the 87 Apex.

I'm going with 87 as there's a 7 at the start of the serial number. (edit: see below, deffo 87)

No idea what it's worth, I'll go with £55 plus post

*edit - I thought that seemed a fair price and have said offers considered but I just want a fair price for it and maybe I was out on that. How about half that - £22.50 plus post? :-) *

** edit - now £10!!!

Comments on the price welcome. It seems to be very rare and it has a mombat entry so I thought that seemed fair. I really like these early diamondbacks - steel ones mainly but this is a bit special.

Cheers mate! One to strip back to bare metal and restore fully I reckon, given the paint's not original and is a bit of a mess

That's nice, nice to see the original colours too, the mombat photos are a bit too professional to get a real idea.

I'm just after whatever mine's worth, it's quite hard to price, offers considered.

Mine's definitely the 87, I've just noticed there's yellow paint around the head tube and in the bottom bracket shell
