1985 Roadmaster 10-Speed Scorcher

Bars from a broken Columbia 3-speed, stock stem


stock wheel / bell tire

stock wheel / bell tire / redished with 17t freewheel

stock cotter crank with new pins, inner chainring removed.


stock / 1/8" chain

before you say anything, this bike was subsequently equipped with a front brake, after I smartened up and admitted to myself that front-brakes are good.


Roadmaster made a lugged frame? Who knew? My dad found this bike at the trash dump. I converted it to single-speed and rode it around for a few months before eventually selling it to my friend Laura. I loved this bike, but it was just slightly too small for me.

People who friended this bike CONDENADO, fastfixie, van, Mtbfixed, per.k

Nice save! Looks like a fun

If you flip those bars, then you've got a real scorcher
