Reader Project: Ian's 1936 Rollfast

As promised, here is Ian's 1936 Rollfast, mentioned a couple of posts ago. Ian sent me the full link to his Picasa album, which for some reason was chopped off in his comment the other day. Here's the link, which includes some very helpful text and some nicely labeled parts, including the bits of the bottom bracket and headset. I hope I can encourage Ian to post some more pics, too, especially of that stylish rear reflector. And maybe it's just me, but I actually like those painted black handlebars with the brown grips.


  1. Grips are a faded sparkly red, not brown. That's just a result of being better at taking apart bicycles than taking good pics.

    If the weather clears up this afternoon, I'll get some more pics of the Rollfast (fender included) and add the Schwinn pics.

  2. Ah, well, brown grips would look good, maybe, although I guess they wouldn't go with the rest of the bike.

  3. where do you go to see what these bikes / any old bikes, are worth? is there a NADA or Blue book that will tell you ?
