Bike ID?

The green one. It's a single speed. I got nothing on the white V/red triangle logo.

No words, letters, numbers or symbols on the bike itself?

Alexander, that's impressive that you could grok that. I figure: bright green spokes that match a bright green frame = walmart

Indeed. The bike in the foreground is decidedly not a "single speed" the OP refers to, and the bike in the background is poorly visualized.

Don't buy it man.
Department store bikes are notoriously dangerous.
You are likely to be seriously injured riding one.
'Likely to be seriously injured' is quite a stretch. As long as the bike is thoroughly checked over and properly adjusted the likely worst outcome will be that he will be disappointed with the fit/performance or durability. I don't see any reason he would be more likely to be hurt on a Walmart bike compared to any other.

Millions of people ride bikes form big box retailers. I hardly ever hear about anyone being injured on one, unless there is contact with a motor vehicle.

Speaking in generalities about big box store bikes... They're cheap in both senses of the word -- both price and quality. They're heavy. They're built with poor-quality components that are sometimes difficult or impossible to adjust precisely. They're poorly assembled. They're not typically unsafe, though, if they're put together properly. ...with a possible exception for poor brakes on freewheel/freehub-equipped bikes.
