I made an offer for the Rollfast a few weeks ago and I got the call yesterday that would accept the offer. When I got there, they had a few more bikes, and gave me a great deal on all of them. My youngest immediately claimed the little 20” Apple Kart convertible, and the Western Flyer has already became a parts bike. ;)
The Rollfast is a bike that checks two boxes for me. I’ve never had a Rollfast bike and I’ve always wanted a green bike. I know these aren’t really sought after, but I really like the look of the bike. The frame reminds me of a 40’s Shelby. The color is great and I like the double striped fenders. I initially thought this was a middleweight bike the first saw the picture of it. It was in a dimly lit building and the tires were flat. It has some wide fenders (I especially like the extra long front fender) and some wide rims with old 26 X 2.125’s. I know they made these in tankers, so I’m on the lookout for a tank for it.

Nice cleanup! That must have been their paperboy model, as the frame is different from their cantilever twin tube frame of the era. That chain guard was introduced in '63. -Adam
