    I knew better than to throw that rusty frame away. Glad you made good use of it Carl. Cool build and the pitted Royal lives again. Gary

    Yes! Thank you so much for this frame. The Rollfast will hopefully show up in the next BIG buildoff...But I do like the way this bike rides. The 2 speed hub is the finishing piece to a good ride.

    Nice build.... just an FYI; that frame ain't fillet-brazed. It's electro-forged.
