    What happened to Rollfast?

    Hi guys,

    I am new to the website and actually just recently moved to the US from the UK. I have always been a huge fan of Rollfast vintage bikes (so glad to be in America!) but cant find much out there on what happened to them! Its such a cool Americana brand - I wonder who owns it now, if anyone. Any thoughts?

    Thanks
    T

    speaking of Rollfast...

    does anyone have one of those fabulous Rollfast truing stands? they have ornate cast aluminum uprights with the name or initial worked in. got to see one in person about forty years back and have always remembered it.

    aha! found a link:

    That looks more like a piece of metal sculpture!
