    Love the look of this Rollfast. I will clean it up and post another pic. It's a Lil crusty on the frame but is shinning up nice. Will be a combo of shiny and ratty at the same time.

    It just looks like a hot rod cruiser.

    All clean and shiny, yet still ratty. Love the way it turned out. New upholstery and new bars. Everything else just made clean and shiny. The quilted seat with red stitches pulls the hotrod look together. It also has a nice wheel set that cleaned up nice. The crusty marys well with the shiny. Looks like an old rod that's still rollin.

    What yous think about this hotrod rollfast cruiser?[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    So, what happened at D.P. Harris - in the 1960's (or later)? Didn't DPH once make most of their own Rollfast parts; or did they merely assemble parts?
    I see the Murray Ohio drop center rims and the Komet-super hub (also common to Murray and others); was the whole bike a Murray Ohio product?

    By the way, on another website, I see that "the Murray bicycle site has been closed".

    I can't say with any certainty that the wheels are original. They did come with the bike. Interesting history question.
