Posted by: Fred A TITLE: AGE / VALUE: 1937 Rollfast
I have the opportunity to purchase a mens 26~~ Rollfast. Its missing its headlight and truss rods, and possibly a tank and rear rack. It~s a straightbar, and has scrapes suggesting a tank was there originally. Burgandy and cream, its really in nice shape. The problem?...my wife...and you know the rest. If I can convince her it~s a good deal, I might get away with buying it. Oh, it also has the brace across the handlebars.
What~s a good price? I know what he wants, and its reasonable(It would match a womans I have that fully equipped) but I need extra voices!

Fred,your on your own on this one! a hundered of us will not change her mind,and she~s right,you don~t need another bike.Like the rest of us , you just want it.Bike collecting is just a hobby.Some guys play golf.And as lone as it~s with in your budget,I see nothing wrong with it.Your never going to convence her you need it,but you might ask her why she would want to take this from you?Like my Mother-in-Law told my wife---some guys collect "girl friends"--at least you know what he~s spending his money on---sam
