    Hi guys
    I live in the UK and have just bought a Dyno Roadster. I knew nothing about them when I bought it and to be honest I don't know much more now, I need some help on trying to find out when it was made. I've been reading some stuff on the net about the company going out of business and being taken over by Pacific and to look at the frame for marks to see if its a real Dyno. I've looked all over the frame and I have got a D stamped and the bottom of the seat tube, a D stamped on the chain guard and stamped on the handle bars with Dyno written under that. It also has a D on the crank but I can't see a serial number anywhere. Can anyone help ?
    Thanks Garry

    Your pics from Google + dont' show up here. Best to try uploading to Photobucket. http://www.ratrodbikes.com/forum/index.php?threads/how-to-post-photos.80238/

    On a few Dynos I've had, the number is on the bottom bracket, but it is hard to see, it's along the edge, not across the bottom.

    Good morning all. New here. I have a small collection of bikes ranging from an Elgin, Roadmaster Luxury Liner, Schwinn Rolling Rock (and other Schwinns) to one that I can't identify. Any help in identifying it will be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you

    Looks to be a Rollfast bike, at least Snyder made, going by the BB hardware. The pics are too small to know for sure 50's or 60's.

    Welcome aboard!

    Thanks for responding. Sorry about the size of the pictures! I realized that after I posted and hoped they wouldn't be too small to identify. Still getting the hang of things. The bottom bracket is stamped A13947 EE. Thanks again.

    I also believe that the blue double bar frame in post #30 is a Rollfast, or at least a Homer-built (H.P. Snyder). Not sure, but I believe it was a 1937 frame design that bends the top tube to align with the seat stays. Also note that the down tube is straight; in 1942 Rollfast switched to a streamlined (curvy) down tube. Earlier motorbikes were derivatives of the frame safety bicycle, and had corners (like in a diamond) at the seat post cluster.

    Sorry for late response, trying to figure out if my A or W serial number bikes might be pre-37 rollfast/snyders. Oops, I replied to a hijacked thread again!
