Can anybody help me out with the original specs for the Diamondback Silver Streak circa 1983? Also, does anyone have, or know where get hold of some (at least close to) original Silver Streak frame decals?
Thanks

See HERE for the Silver Streak test from December '82 BMX Plus.

The Silver Streak stickers appear on e:bay from time to time. That's the only place you are likely to see them - though an ad in the Wanted section might flush out a set.

This is the sticker set. (This is Smokin' Endo's sweet SS).

The set is good - but uses the old snake head sticker instead of the DB on a black diamond background. The set only comes with one fork sticker too. Who knows why???!!!

That actually isn't the right stickers for an 83. The 83 silver streaks downtube decal said DIAMONDBACK II on it. I've been watching ebay for 2 years for a set of those and when they do pop up they are pretty rediculous in price.

See what I mean about the DB II on the downtube?
