Dyno Bike Details

Come back soon for pics of the following details that help to identify particular Dyno models.

Frames
The frames are probably 1018 carbon steel with a 1″ head tube and a 2″ American style eccentric bottom bracket shell. The rear dropouts are horizontal. Both the chain stays and seat stays have a characteristic curve that sets the Dyno frames apart from other cruiser type bicycles.

The Dyno Glide does not have the head tube gusset. All other Dyno variants have a gusset at the head tube on both sides of the frame with the characterized “D” for Dyno, incised on the gusset.
There is the characterized “D” for Dyno incised on the end of the top tube behind the seat tube.

The kickstand may be the typical cruiser type that fits into a tube with a triangular end that attaches to the formed part that connects the chain stays to the bottom bracket shell. The other type of kickstand attaches to the bottom of the bottom bracket shell.

Forks
The Dyno Glide and the Roadster have a simple springer type fork.
The Dyno Deuce and Mooneyes have a triple tree or crown 1″ threadless non-suspension fork.

Handlebars
The Dyno Glide and the Roadster that have the simple springer type fork have a wide swept back handlebar with a D incised onto the bar.
The others with the triple tree or crown 1″ threadless non-suspension fork have more ape hanger type bar with the D incised onto the bar.

Kickstands
There are 2 types:
One attaches to a tube welded to a formed part that attaches the bottom bracket shell with the chainstays. The other, more recent and flimsier of the two, attaches to some thin brackets welded to the bottom bracket shell.

Wheels
Very well made steel 26″ rims with 36 spokes for most front and some back wheels.
Some back wheels are 24″ by 3″ with the fatty tire.
