1987 Diamond Back Hot Streak

Survivor, barely

Same bike I received for Christmas of '87. Lot of work and elbow grease to get it to this point. Was going to finish it in stock form but have decided to upgrade it a little. Full growler part of the purchase!

My folks took me to the local bike shop and I picked out the same color and model for my bday in 87’.  This bike is what started it all for me. I jumped many o’ curb getting my confidence in the air with this same bike. Glad to see one is still out there that looks this good. Nice work man!


Put a glide in yo stride, a dip in yo hip, and c’mon to tha mothership.

Awesome. I was at my LBS weekly back in the day checking out all the freestyle rides...was the best. I didn't get get the pro performer I had my eye on but my hot streak I got for Christmas was still the raddest bike in the neighborhood.

Thanks for the kind words!

I've looked at this bike over and over since I bought my frameset this summer. a great example and it has been an inspiration in my build too.
