WANTED:   JC Penney Foremost posted by: Matt on 11/26/2007 at 9:31:14 PM
I have an early 1960's model JC Penney Foremost bike that was my mom's. I have decided to fix it back to original, or as close as possible. I was wondering if there were any sites or stores that I'd be able to get parts for this bicycle from? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

IMO, 1936 ±2.
I looked at some pics on nostalgic.net... seems like that's about as late as they used that chainwheel. Take a look:

There's a few in their list with the balloon tires and recurved fenders from that era. But some of them are only dated as "1930s" so that's a start.

I just found this picture over there today:

so I'd agree with the 1936. I've got a bit of work to do...

AGE / VALUE:   RED & WHITE MENS THUNDERJET posted by: Mark on 11/25/2007 at 1:25:22 AM
Just purchased a RED and WHITE Vintage THUNDERJET Bike.
Looking to see if it is worth restoring.
I bought it as I have never seen one before and the front tag reads THUNDERJET AMERICAN MADE.
It has a brown SADDLE TYPE Seat with springs that says SCHWINN. NOT RIPS OR TEARS. WHITE GRIPS AND RIMS.
HAS A CHRME LIGHT MOUNTED ON THE FRONT RED FENDER. Fenders have Dual white pin stripes. The tank has a real cool ART DECO THNDERJET LOGO painted on it with a small UFO painted below it.. BIKE LOOKS COOL..
TIres say Super Deluxe in black raised rubber lettering
Chain guard reads SUPER DELUXE in White..
Any info would be greatly appreciated..
