    looking for red '85 diamondback apex

    celebrating 20 years of mt biking this summer and (seven bikes later) had the idea to try to find my very first mt bike: a red 1985 red diamondback apex?

    any ideas where to find one?

    anybody have one collecting dust in the corner of their garage?

    thanks!!

    Spent well over 10 years myself looking for a 1984 Ross Mt. Hood.
    Finding one in good shape, original parts, not on Budget Bicycle Center pricing can be a bit of a struggle.
