Hi Pickers,
I found this pre war Rollfast at an estate sale. In the basement covered in dust. $30.00, I did offer 20.
First thing I did was air up the tires. To my suprise, the back tire held air. 4 weeks still holding. Nice.
Im more of a bannana seat guy, as you can see from the 1970s Sears Spyder 10 speed find (winter project). Check out the ram horns handlebars, too cool.
Thanks for looking.
Jeff
P.S. no bicycle category?

    Hey,, nice bike,, but I believe it was made post war due to the sprockets not being skip tooth, and the chain guard,,. Things do get changed, but it looks pretty original. I have postwar bikes with the chain adjusters still used. That said,, its a nice survivor. Keep on posting as you find more stuff.

    Thank you for the eye opener Vontrike. What year did rollfast change the head badge, and did this bike have a head light?
    Thank,

    Not sure on the badges, but yours is cool. Are there two holes on the top of the fender for a light ? If not,, I would find a old vintage handlebar light. Love the curved rear rack braces too.
