1937 Rollfast 26

Classic 70's style 26" cruiser

Realllly old school. A 70+ year old straightbar Rollfast frame (Oct. 1937) given the BMX treatment with a Wald fork, Ashtabula headset, Uni hammerhead seat, Sunshine front hub laced to Araya 7x, Shimano coaster rear laced to a generic chrome steel rim. Mid school redline 1pc cranks, wellgo pedals, poverty stem, and Mongoose bars. This is such a fun old bike. I'd been wanting a Cook Bros, Powerlite, etc.  This is a much cheaper alternative, yet still authentic and arguably cooler. Looks almost identical to a 78-80 Powerlite.

SWEET! 

1937????  That looks more like late 70s/early 80s geometry.  I assume you know what it is, though smile

I might not deliver when I say I will, but when I do it's always right on time.
