I am trying to help my 70 year old uncle find out any information from history to how much his bike is worth.

Here is what we know:

Year: about 1916
Company: Jenkins Cycle Company
Chicago, IL
Make: Napoleon (not sure of spelling)
Tires: 28"

Please email me any information you have on this bike or where I could go to get information. Thank you for all your help in advanced.

Thank you, Cyndi Caverly

Sears sold a Napolean brand bike around that time. That's a possibility.

Try going to the library and looking for info on the company. I have a list of manufacturers as of 1905 that does not list Jenkens (source: the Thomas Regestry).
