Diamant 35 708

This frame was built in 1987 by VEB Elite Diamant in former GDR and was owned and ridden by Betriebssportgemeinschaft (BSG) Turbine Peitz, an east german cycling club. The clubs name was changed to Radsportverein Peitz e.V. after the fall of the GDR. They sold a bunch of frames in June 2016 and I got lucky finding on in my size. I was painted over a few times and I think I´ll repaint it someday in it´s original silver/grey colour. The frame is really heavy and it doesn´t seems as if there is any form of conification of the tubes at all. The chrome plated steel fork is a piece of beauty. I really love it but it needs some other, more classy parts.

Hast du die Decals entfernt oder drauf geklebt? Bin zwar mehr der "Originalteile"-Typ, aber dieser Fixie-Look steht dem Diamant auch gut :-)

Danke :) Ich hab den Rahmen von einem Verein ohne Aufkleber gekauft und diese nachträglich angebracht. Ich habe gerade nur diese Teile zur Verfügung von meinem alten Bike, dessen Rahmen kaputt ist. Ziel ist es daraus einen klassischen Aufbau zu machen. Wird noch bisl dauern ;)
