    Diamondback that is! Was out cruising over to my storage unit to install the new radio in my Sunfire and I spotted a yard sale sign. Turns out it was a fundraiser for our local humane society (animal shelter). I see a few bikes and stuff so I stopped. Bought this awesome chrome Diamondback bmx...

    Skyrider 2

    Well I was bored waiting on parts for the Skyrider/ American Gentleman build so I thought I'd go check out Studio Black Antiques again and show off my progress. He loved seeing the bike totally transformed. I saw another Skyrider and I couldn't stop myself. He said he'd part with it for $40 so...

I asked how much and he started...
