    Something tells me it’s a little bit of both...

    Any thoughts?[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Rollfast used horizontal badge holes; Sears Elgin used vertical badge holes. Snyder frames may have distinctive stepped joints between the BB and main tubes.

    I’ll get a pic of the BB when I get around to the garage today. Thanks for the info.

    After looking through google images of prewar Rolfast & Elgin bicycles for 15min, I think it might be a jumble of parts from all over. fame looks 1920's Elgin but don't quote me on that.

    I did the same. I was also thinking Elgin frame and Rollfast parts. The forks have me stumped. I cannot find a photo of similar forks anywhere.
