What is it?

Fox...thanks! Maybe the fox / dynamark thunderbolt 125 pictured in this ad? Same fenders and adjustable bars?

The fenders and front fender mounts (with holes) look very similar to Manco/Sears bikes (screamer/orange crush)...same supplier maybe?

Yes, Manco seems to have taken over what was left of the Fox line by 1978, which at that point Manco was supplying Sears too so the bikes kinda stem off those. Just like they took over the Bird recreational line roughly 10 years later (thunderbird, etc..) 1973 appears to be the first year for the plastic fenders and also a change to bolt on bars, my 1972 literature for both the Dynamark and Fox bike shows them like what Tom posted up. Grants Dept. store was a big seller of those bikes as well at that time.
