Posted by: Michael TITLE: BALLOON:   My Rollfast Year?
Hello, I recently bought an early 1940s Rollfast 26" Boys model ballooner, I believe its from somewhere between ~41 and ~45, but I~d like to figure out the exact year it was built if possible. The serial number is on the seat tube near the top (non drive side) and is ?172011 (the question mark represents a number or letter I cant make out.. doesnt really look like either a letter or number, but its indented into the frame).
On the bottom of bottom bracket I have 74?M (same deal with the question mark, cant figure out what thats supposed to be). It has New Departure Hubs (Model D coaster), The sprocket has Rs on them, the rear reflector is plastic and jeweled. It doesnt have a chainguard on it, rear rack or tank. Also does anyone know if these bicycles were ever sold In Canada? I bought it from somebody in Toronto Ontario.
I took a few photos of it, if others of anything specific are needed just ask.
