1984 Diamond Back Harry Leary Turbo

My Grail

Here is my 95% OG Harry Leary Turbo. I say 95% because when I got it someone had replaced the Oakleys with Ame Tris. I was lucky enough to find a NOS set of black/grey B1B's. The only thing I have done to it is relace the wheels with correct asahi spokes (the originals were corroded), and replace the seat with a new suede Kashi (OG one was torn and now in the closet). Pads are OG also, and the finishing touch was finding the series one Haro plate to complete the Harry Leary look.

+1 on the "Grail for sure..." comment! Truly stunning bike back then and jaw dropping in that condition now!
