Has the "R" sprocket..
Headbadge holes are horizontal.; unfortunately the badge was gone when I got the bike about 17 years ago..I ridden it a few times when I first got it. It has been in storage for probably at least 12 years.

Might be the oldest bike in the buildoff.

Does the "R" sprocket mean it's a Rollfast? That looks like a Snyder frame with the curved fender bracket on the seatstays.

The R stands for Roadmaster. Cleveland Welding Company ... House brand was Roadmaster.

And also became part of Snyder in later years. Along with DP Harris.

Good choice on the forks. On the older frames with a more vertical slant on the head tube, standard BMX style forks leave the front wheel a little bit to the rear of where it should be. My 42 Snyder Hawthorne rode different and I couldn't figure out why at first. Yours looks like it was made for that frame.
