Also, take special note of the schedule for submission, cut off and voting 



Please note that due to low turnout, the lone PIT BIKE entry as well as the lone FREESTYLE entry have been merged into this class.  We will now refer to this as "the 80's 20" and under open class".

My first post and first entry to the BOTY 2015:

I always wanted a PK when I was young, so when I had the chance to grab the f/f I jumped on it. Pretty much built it up the way I would loved to have back then. Hope everybody likes it at least half as much as I do.

This year's entry is my 1984 GJS A-84. A-84's were the last generation for the GJS A-frames. This is the bike I built for and take locally on rides. Vintage representation. So, some of you may not like the tires, but, I'll roll those dice - street tires for street riding. Original finish across the board.


Frame/Fork: GJS A-84 and GJS fork. Original finish. Pre-acquisition decal replacement.

Wheels: Shimano cassettes with Ukai 7C/Box rims. Street tires.

Bars: Redline STR Series V-Bars with Ourys

Stem: Tuf Neck Square corner

HS: Tange 125 (New, sealed model)

Brake: Shimano Quick Release with Mathauser pads

Drivetrain: Takagi OPC and spider. Sugino Chainwheel. DID chain.

Pedals: KKT K-MX.

Seat: Kashimax MX.

Bonus: Original bikeshop sticker, Conway Bicycle Center, Orlando, FL

1982 Diamondback Harry Leary Turbo


Found at a local bike pile near where I live. 

Can't call it a survivor since the wheels were on the same area but not on the bike.


hlt find.jpg


I left the "Port Hueneme" Navy base decal on for a mind-narrative. I can see some hot-shot military dependent bmx kid getting this for Christmas 1982 (Serial indicates later 82 build) and racing the many tracks that were available around that time.

I can picture the family being reassigned to Kitsap Bangor Naval base (Close to where I found the bike) and as the kid grew up, slowly turning away from BMX and finally just selling or abandoning the bike as he became an adult and moved away.

Finally, I can Imagine the now adult browsing through the Society page and seeing the bike.

















Diamondback HLT frame, fork, crank, seatpost, stem and handlebars.

Araya Chrome 7X rims
Asahi spokes (from a new box)
Black nipples
IRC Tird
Chrome Suzue hubs
Tange headset (original finish)
Fuan grips
Dia-Compe chrome brake (switched front to back)
Dia-Compe lever
Sedisport chain
Suntour freewheel
MKS "Diamondback" pedals (Not HLTs)
Haro plate
Ariake saddle
All items original finish. Except for saddle which was faded grey and I used some "heel and sole" to give it the "right" look.
