Two pictures showing David Clinton’s bikes from late ’78 and early 1980. Note the lack of large seat tube decal even on the early ’80 bike. It does have a Mongoose like ring decal.

Picture appeared in the Jan. ’79 issue meaning it must have been taken in late ’78.

Second picture shows it in early 1980. It appears in the May 80 issue but unclear when picture was actually taken. May have been early 80 or late 79. Note the lack of large seat tube decal, but ring decal on seat stay. It is my opinion that on the 79’s that decal was used either on the seat tube or seat stays. I have a 1980 with original decals and the first batch “A” and it has no such decal and does have the large seat tube decal. However sometime in ’80 they added a decal to the chain stays saying “Chromoly”. My batch A bike doesn’t have one.

Here are a bunch of Pictures from various magazines of David Clinton, Diamond Backs first rider. All pictures from 1978 show he used a Candy Blue DB. At one point he was using Cooks Bros. forks. All pictures on my Bloq’s from “Bicycle Motocross Action” are used courtesy of Bob Osborn. Do Not use or reproduce without his expressed written permission.

1978, shows David running the Cooks Bros. forks early on.

Oldest advertisement I have found so far. December 1978. So pictures were probably from fall of ’78
