Those forks look scary from what I can see in the pictures. I'd take the rack off the back and save it for a 26 inch bike. The wheels will probably need Rebuilt to ride smoothly. If it has original paint i wouldn't paint it. Have fun with it! I'm thinking 50s.

What do you see that's wrong with the forks?

They're bent, to the rear and it looks a little skewed to the right from the head on photo. They also look crimped on the inside.

A favorite accident was a car rollover bending the forks. Damn kids dropped their bike the driveway and dad backs out. . . . Forks can be bent back in a vise but this a caveman task. These forks look flattened for fat tire clearance? Some kind, gentle person will probably stumble on to your thread with period pictures. Rollfast guys quickly sniff out their favorite ride. Good luck

as far as the serial number, check the bottom bracket (hanger bracket) most likely there.

It is a good looking bike, a lot of potential.

Now I'm nervous about the forks. Should try to fix them or get another set?

@Krakatoa does fork repairs, he might be able to fix them, you could ask him.

Or, there is a set on ebay, of a girls bike, you would have to have the steer tube cut down and threaded. @Krakatoa does that also.

I found the serial number. I can't seem to get a picture to show the numbers. But I'm pretty sure that's it.

Also what parts would be interchangeable? Need a new fork.

Probably most parts would interchange, with another Snyder built Rollfast, direct fit.

You could also most likely use a fork from a Murray, or a Huffy or a Schwinn, or anything that would fit, if you don't care about it not being original.
You could put an aftermarket springer on it. The world is your oyster.

You could buy that fork that I showed you on ebay, and send it off to have it cut and threaded, or find someone local to do it for you. The price offered by @Krakatoa to do the work is very fair, probably less than if you had a local bike shop do it.

Good luck whatever way you go.

A modern huffy?

Sent from my G60 using Tapatalk
probably, it will be ugly though.

You could use it as something to hold your front wheel on and ride, until you can get the proper fork.

I have been guilty of that in the past when building a bike and not having the proper fork. They work until something better comes along. However, as I said, they are ugly.

Yup that's a 24" Totally not gonna be an easy find. U could get a 24" Schwinn middleweight fork and make a extended chopper with that one. Just cut em off and slide em over the Schwinn,, drill a few holes.,, to bolt em on, wala! , extended. I mean, that's what I did to those in the 60's and it's prob why they ain't around. :tonguewink: .
