right on. it'll be an awesome bike for an 8-11 year old depending on how much he sprouts up! back in the good old days it was a big deal to save up your lunch money to upgrade to redline flights with the techmatic bottem bracket! now days kids can get decent bikes for around 350 bucks that they can hammer. you still see guys building up bikes, but kids just getting started can get alot more for 300 bucks then that sst you got your hands on that probably sold for just a hair under 300 in its day! also most american made frames these days go for about 250-350 just for the frame where as i remember when framesets sold for 130-180 bucks for the frame and fork! oh and the sst first showed its face around 12 years ago. if it has the robinson sticker that went from blue with lines into white with lines into red then its an older one that probably had diacompe bulldog brakes, later sst's came with canti's and threadless forks.
