My son outgrew his 16 inch bike so I've been looking for something to replace it. Had to make a business trip 250 miles from home and checked CL and found this flashy 18 inch Dyno Fireball. Chinese made, I think, but good for a 7 year old. And picked it up the day before his birthday party! Hawthorne showed up this week. No idea on date, but I like this style frame so I couldn't resist it. Decent ride, considering the tires are dry rotted and have some sort of strange solid tube.
