Well a friend of mine asked me to look for an old bmx for him (he was into it big in the late 70s early 80s) as a reminder of the old days. Well we grabbed bike on auction for $5 but not sure what it is.
The crank arm says team schwinn, wheels are son lite racing.

Any id help would be great thanks.

Diamond Back for sure, but not necessarily a Silver Streak. DBs were almost all looptails from the beginning (77) to the early 80s...around 83/84. There should be a serial number that you can post on BMXmuseum to figure out the exact year.

Congrats...love looptails!

Glad everything worked out, but even at $150, you, -in the parlance of our time-"left alot of meat on that bone".

I'm sure we could have gotten more but seeing as it was a $145 profit in 2 days we were happy.

Yep, Silver Streak or Viper depending on the box section behind BB. Also forks are not original.
