Yes it was the cheaper end of the market and sold in places just for the new person who wanted a cheap bmx ( or mum and dad )
Some people like them as they had them as there first bmx back in the day

If I remember rightly they don't have a strengthened seat stay to seat tube. I got given one about 20 years ago that I built from the parts I had on my dyno while it was in for a respray. I took it off a small drop and bent the frame so badly the chainring hit the floor and I couldn't pedal it. Was quite funny at the time. But if your a big bloke don't try and ride it hard. Trust me ;)
