    Just an update on this bike. Project almost done. Haven’t sanded it down to look for any hidden numbers or Illuminati symbols. It’s my sons (14 years) ride now. I found someone selling an upgraded Dyno. They didn’t know it was a coaster:banana:!! I have a Roadster frame (2004) for sale along with a Electra straight8 in NorCal for sale.

    Looks overpriced to me, but I'm not a collector.

    Agree with Wildcat.
    Both are Kustom Kruisers and not Dyno's if I am being very critical.

    Blue bike was called Cobra 5 or similar, l believe. I find little cosmetic differences between the GT Dyno Kustom Kruisers of the "Questor Partners" era or the Kustom Kruisers of the "Pacific Cycles" era after GT and then its successor companies went bankrupt. The later bikes did have different seats without web springs. 2000 and later bikes have better kick stands. After GT died, it was a few years before they stopped using the GT and Dyno names on new bikes. When a company goes bankrupt, often it loses control of things like production and product naming.

    Looked for almost a year for a premo OG Mooneyes w/disks. Finally found what I'd been looking for about a month ago, approx. 100 miles north of me.

    Okay, now a real tough one for Dyno bike experts out there!
    How many of 2007 Kustom Kruiser Glides were ever made?

    They went bankrupt the very same year, so they did not manage to produce a lot of them, but how rare those bikes actually are?

    It is! Especially considering the way the joint is designed.

    As you see the tubes are really thick there. I have never taken one like this apart, but it might have bearings inside.

    Overall the attention to details and a quality of parts on this bike is amazing. Above most of the cruisers produced in 21st century.

    Neat Aluminum (or Aluminium-A) bike.
    Who went bankrupt in 2007; Dorel Industries (parent company), of Canada, EH; or Pacific Cycles, of Madison, WI.

    That's a nice looking bike! How expensive were these when new?

    Oh, okay. I did not quite realized that. So seems they just have stopped producing KK?
