    wow, you're flying on this rebuild. Only 10 coats of stripper eh? :shock:

    Well, I'm glad it arrived in good order and it looks to have gone to a good home, looking forward to seeing what you do with it!

    Re: LATE 30'S ROLLFAST

    SO I WAS THINKING THAT EVERY BIKE SHOULD HAVE A STORY. SO I DECIDED TO MAKE ONE UP. HERE IT GOES:

    IT WAS 1930; THE YEAR FASTWIDE RATKUST WAS BORN IN NEW YORK CITY. HIS FAMILY WAS POOR BUT HAPPY. ON HIS FIFTH BIRTHDAY HE ASKED HIS FATHER FOR A BIKE SINCE HE WORKED AT A BICYCLE COMPANY CALLED DP HARRIS, BUT HIS FATHER COULD NOT AFFORD IT. SENIOR RATKUST WAS VERY MAD SINCE HE WOULD NOT BUY HIS KID A BIKE. HE MADE HIS SON A PROMISE AND HE SAID “JUNIOR, I SWEAR YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE A BIKE, IT’S GOING TO TAKE ME SOME TIME BUT YOU WILL HAVE YOUR BIKE”.


    TO BE CONTINUED…

    Re: LATE 30'S ROLLFAST

    SO 4 MORE YEARS HAD GONE BY AND SENIOR RATKUST HAD NOT BEEN ABLE TO BUY HIS KID A BIKE AND HIS BIRTHDAY WAS COMING UP. SO IT WAS 1939 AND FASTWIDE HAD JUST TURNED 9 YEARS OLD. HIS FATHER DESPERATE TO GET HIM A BIKE DECIDE TO STEAL THE BIKE FROM THE COMPANY. WHEN HE GOT HOME HE GAVE HIS SON HIS FIRST BIKE AND TOLD HIM TO TAKE GOOD CARE OF IT. THEY TOOK THE BIKE TO A FRIENDS HOUSE SINCE THEY DIDN'T HAVE ROOM FOR THE BIKE. A FEW HOURS LATER POLICE ARRIVED AND ARRESTED HIS FATHER. FASTWIDE LEARNED THAT HIS FATHER HAD STOLEN THE BIKE. THE POLICE SEARCHED FOR THE BIKE BUT COULD NOT FIND IT. HIS FATHER GOT SENTENCED FOR 4 YEARS. FASTWIDE LATER USED THE BIKE TO GET A JOB DELIVERING THE PAPER AND 8 MONTHS LATER HAD ENOUGH MONEY TO PAY THE COMPANY FOR THE BIKE HIS FATHER HAD STOLEN AND THE BICYCLE COMPANY DROPPED THE CHARGES AND HIS FATHER WAS A FREE MAN.

    TO BE CONTINUED

    How did you do the stencils? Vinyl?

    Re: LATE 30'S ROLLFAST

    i have a material that looks and feels like vinyl but the sticky side is not as strong as the vinyl i use for the decals. that way when you remove it the paint will not come off. all you have to do is wait for the paint to really dry before you apply them the exact same thing i didnt do. any way where i had some paint lifting is going to be covered up by the tank so i'm in luck!! :wink:
