    Dahom Mariner 26" Wheels - What year is this bike??

    My wife just picked up a Dahon Mariner with 26" wheels for my son. It looks brand new and she bought it for $34 at the Salvation Army store. My wife rocks!!!! I've spent the last couple of hours trying to pin down the age of the bike with no success. I searched this forum and found out about Wayback. Unfortunately, Wayback only goes to 1998 on the Dahon site. I'm confident that this bike is older but I would really like to determine how old this bike is. I haven't been able to find a single picture on the internet of a Mariner that looks like this one. There are some numbers on the frame underneath the crank: DH93040457.

    Thank you in advance for any information.

    Erich

    P.S. Other bikes owned: 1966 Sears Spyder 20", 1939 Elgin, 2007 Scott Speedster.

    Does that one fold?

    I have a Rolling Rock Promo bike that is from around 96 or so, don't recall the exact age. AFAIK mine is based on the Mariner of that era.
