BALLOON:   ID model and age of Roadmaster posted by: Roger Blake on 12/2/2006 at 9:10:18 AM
Help me identify the model name and year of manufacture for this Roadmaster. I suspect it is in the 40’s from the rearward facing dropouts and skip tooth chain. The serial number is Roadmaster G46436 AC, but I could not find a serial database for Roadmaster on the web.

Here is a similar one that sold on eBay but no date or model number was given. The crank sprocket has a different pattern and it has a tank. I wonder if mine did. Mine has holes in the front fender for a light.

There are a bunch of Sears Spyders in the picture database here. You might find one exactly like yours and be able to determine the date.

BALLOON:   Monarch Rocket Info. posted by: Grant on 11/27/2006 at 6:44:59 PM
Hello, I have an early 50's? Monarch Rocket that I picked up at a thrift store some time ago and would like some info on where I could get an accurate picture of this bicycle to help aid in restoration. The bike was mostly intact when bought, but it didn't have a tank on it. It did however have the fender mounted headlight (which was missing) It has a rack in the back, and had white painted rims with red pinstripe on both sides of the spokes. The bike itself was red with the typical white markings on the front of the frame and on the tips of the fenders. The bike also had black rubber mud flaps on the bottom of the fenders. The seat was leather with a chrome grab bar on the back. The chain guard is missing, but is there another model that is similar? I have another Monarch for parts, but not a Rocket. I would like to paint this bike as close to original as it was, any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Pick up a copy of "evolution of the bicycle" volume 1 + 2 and there are plenty of pictures of Monark bicycles to look through.

The Picture Database here has them spelled three ways. Are they all the same brand??
