This bike test appeared in the March 1988 issue of BMX Action. Auburns first bike test ever. The photos taken during the day including the color shot below of the bike were taken just off the 57 Freeway in Diamond Bar, California. I was at this photo shoot.

It clearly states that this was a Prototype bike.  Since the issue was in March of 1988, these photos were probably taken late in 87. That means Auburn was born in 1987 with production probably beginning at the end of 1987 also or the start of 1988.
