I'd go with October 1965 and it is the 118th SuperSport off the production line.

Cruisers are CHEAP. They don’t need adjustments to a shifter. The brakes last forever. No cables to adjust. Just get on pedal forward to go, backwards to stop. There are a million videos to fix...

look up Porkchop BMX.
