I'm positive that it is a 1968 Blue Rollfast.

Sir, I know it's hard to post pics for you, but without pictures there's really nothing anyone can do.

On the contrary. It's a 1969.

This forum seems to have lost a bit of its famous geniality.

OP, if you want help, post photos. Middleweight and heavyweight bikes are not a great specialty of the people here, but maybe someone will be able to help you.

Also, it would help to know what you are looking for... just the year of your bike's manufacture?

Also, if you use standard English and avoid saying "lol" unless something is genuinely funny, people here will probably retract their claws.

The bike may LOOK blue but how do you know for sure that it's blue?
