Diamondback Interval Townie

I got this bike for free, sprayed in grey primer with a rusted chain and bad wheels. I stripped it down through layers of grey and blue paint to the original, added wheels and other used parts to get it where it is today (pic is from an early evening test ride the night I finished it). These bikes are 'sleepers' with responsive geometry and pleasant ride. They are often overlooked and sold cheap. This is the second one I've owned as I sold off my first and wished I hadn't.
