1998 Diamond Back Joker

1998 Joker with some different parts

Found this Joker dirt cheap. I knew nothing about these bikes when I bought it. Got it, cleaned it up, was impressed by how solid it is. It was missing a front brake so I put an old Odyssey 2000 on it. I replaced it's unbranded rear 990 brake with a Tektro. It's got new cables too. Yes it rocks a Bell chain. I left the original tires because they seem ok. Re-greased the whole thing, replaced the chain and it was done. Until I realized it was missing decals. It was missing the top tube Joker decal and the Joker himself on the seat post tube. I searched and surfed, until I found a '97 Joker with a set of NOS '97 decals included. Yes I bought the '97 Joker just to get the decal set. The decals are a bit different but better than nothing. You can see in the pictures the top tube decal is brighter and different than the bottom main tube. I don't care. Also I'm not going to try and remove the old decals because I'm a bull in a China shop when it comes to that. Removing old decals from painted surfaces has proved catastrophic in my world. I took the bike shop sticker off my '96 Dyno Air and took some paint too. I've tried heat, Goof Off, fingernail, whatever. If there's a trick to it and you've read this far, hit me up. Otherwise it is what it is. The bars are a bit short for my taste but I really like the bike. Maybe it'll get some taller bars one day. Thanks for looking.
