    Diamond not rough

    Came across this fillet brazed beauty in Berkeley over the weekend. Nice Bontrager comp fork that could use a bit of shining/buffing IMO. I can't recall if I've ever seen one of these, from the slack'ish head and seat tube I'd say late 80's? Anyone know of the bike and/or builder? In any case thought a couple pics would brighten these bizarre times, and Monday to boot. Cheers Diamond not rough-d1.jpgDiamond not rough-d.jpg
    hmmm appears MTBR has altered the pic insert?

    Damn, would be worth the bike just for that fork. Unfortunate you acquired 2 gems...

    Thanks for the information, from that link Greg Diamond passed away in 1990, looks like he mainly made road bikes. So this bike is likely mid-late 80's and likely quite rare, she's not mine, just an pleasant sighting in Berkeley, though it is my no, currently I'm in saving mode for a different type of build (one I can live in). Best to you all
