Don't have a picture to post yet but can anyone tell me what this bike is/might-be.
bmx stlye bike given to me, mostly everything on the bike is redline:rims,tires,headset,cranks,pedals,sprocket.
bike has two pins/bolts that hold the frame together. pins are on back of crank area and other is about 3-4 in. behind seat post. pins/bolts definitely done by manufacture or proffesional. bolts/pin lies flat, looks like might bend so more tricks or when taken apart would store in small space.Back half of bike is aluminum.More square then round on body from here on. has sticker saying Works Link 6061 alloy.
Can't find any marks/stamps yet on frame. Forks have a v or checkmark on them. I don't know who these are from either?
Thanks so much for any help on this. Will get a pict. posted when have more time.
Two people have seen this bike besides me & giver,both have made offers to purchase but don't tell me anything about what they might know about it. Offers are good, last one was for $1,100.00 makes me really want to know more of what it is before I part with bike or decide to keep.

Sounds like an Auburn, mid-to-late 80's. Nice find if it is. That bike could be worth 1000-4500. I had one in 1988, that I paid 650 bucks for. It had two different "rear-ends", one squared and the other round. The "pegs" you're talking about allowed you to change the rear-ends(for what reason I still don't know) Mine was red(with flames) with the rear-ends chromoly.

I have come across a Diamondback Viper from 1982 or 1983 with all original equipment, no dents, no rust, there is a few scratches on 1 decal. I am thinking of giving it to my daughter (9) but wondering what it is worth. Can somebody give me any info?
