Rollfast bicycles have a long and complex history that has close ties with two different companies. The D.P. Harris Hardware and Manufacturing Company originated the name in the 1890’s, and later teamed up with the H.P. Snyder Manufacturing Company in the early 1900’s. Snyder was the primary manufacturer of the bicycles, while Harris provided some of the parts and marketed them. During the Great Depression, Snyder began manufacturing bicycles for other retailers such as Montgomery Ward who sold them under the Hawthorne name. Some sought after Snyder built Rollfast bicycles are the V-200 model and the Hopalong Cassidy bicycles. Snyder built Rollfast bicycles well into the 1970’s.
