My cool old bike

I bought this neat old Rollfast bike in 1990 in upstate New York while on a road trip. It was $18 and I had to buy a $50 bike rack to get it back to California. But it was so awesome and I always meant to restore it. Fast forward 21 years (sheesh) and vintage bikes are hot once again. Of course I never did get around to restoring it back in the 90s. My dad restores vintage cars so I asked him to help me restore my bike. But everytime I go out there I have a million other things to do. So it will probably sit there for another 21 years. Only now it’s in a bunch of pieces!

Anyhow, it’s pretty cool.

It was in need of restoration when I got it and has been outside for the past 21 years so now it REALLY needs help.

I’ll keep you all posted if we get any work done on it! I’d love to be able to ride it around.
