I was curious to know if there's any info out there about this bike. Most markings are worn off. I plan on fixing the rear wheel up and rehabbing it for my son, who will fit it in a year or two.

the stem seemed unique to me-- any idea on the year at least?

The Piston was on pretty much every decent GT and Dyno complete for a long time. I'm going to make a rough guess of '97, based on the headset, cranks, and pedals.

GT Interceptor, 1994.
Exact same bike.

Wait, it's not the exact bike.... the dropouts are different, as is the TT/ST/Seat Stay area. Same color and sticker color scheme though, so I bet it is more like a 97 as you suggest.

To help in narrowing down the model of the bike in the first post, it's a Dyno, not a GT. (Dyno was one of GT's brands) I just noticed the Dyno "D" stamped into the dropout.

ha- maybe that's why the previous owner must have taken off the main brand sticker, to try and make it look like a GT. But that would have to be stamped upside down on that dropout-- I still think it's a mid/low-range GT.

That bike is veryyyy similar to my bike. i have a 1997 DYNO VFR. your frame is just a little thicker than mine.

I have a 97 dyno vfr and the rear doesnt look like that *haha i too removed the dyno decals in exchange for GT and replaced alot of the dyno parts lol*
That is probably the later VFR, maybe 99?
