Definitely a Dyno or else a bootleg Dyno. You can tell by the way the top tube bends down right before the seat post at the frame stand. Looks like it's in good shape. When you get it, there should be some "D" stamps in the frame and/or fork somewhere. I'm sure it's probably mid-school (I'm an old school guy) but we should be able to help you out trying to ID it better when you have it in hand.

http://www.bmxmuseum.com is a great place to check out bikes. They've got a lot of Dynos up there.

thanks for the help you two :) , it seems you're both right about it being a dyno. i've been saying to my wife that i'm going to start restoring a bmx for each of us but she steamrollered ahead and bought this 'on a whim' :roll: oh well, it means i can focus on mine now :wink:

thanks again.
