    Hi, I am not a bike collector, but would like some information on a bicycle called the "Thunder Jet" made by the Chain Bike Corp of Rockaway Beach NY. It has a picture of a jet in the clouds on the tanks. I have owned it for about 20 years and it has always just sat in my "collections" room. thanks in advance Tony

    It would be helpful to post up some pics of your bike, but in case you can't here is one of the three Thunder jet bikes i have. This is my son's 24" version.

    If you can't post the pics you can send them directly to me and I can get them posted. Having 3 of these bikes I have an affinity for them becasue of the "Jet Age" correlation. As for value, not nearly as popular with collector's as some of the other major brands, but still pretty cool in my eyes. The company later became the Ross Bike Corp.

    I have a 1975 Chain-Bike built Concord with the original manual I'm trying to sell. It was built in Allentown, PA. So when did they change to Ross?
