10~18kustoms

Finally riding a big boys bike
After I found my bike last year I started keeping a registry of all the known Rocket Deluxe Bikes I have been able to find. 9 total so far. From what I can tell (and have been told) this "Deluxe" version of the standard Monark Rocket that includes the metal tank shrouds was only made in 1953. The 9 I have found all are from '53. Model number is #4260, but some have the letter C or D after the number.

The main characteristic that set this bike apart from the basic Rocket is the metal tank shrouds. They all also seem to have the single springer fork, but this fork was also used on other Monark Rockets, and Airman bikes over the years.

As far as I can tell the men's were offered in 2 color options, the Monark Green/Sea Green and Black & Red. They also did a girls version, of which I only know of 2. one is only a tank, and they also feature the metal shrouds. Light blue/Dark blue or black & yellow.

They were also sold and badged as a Super Chief. , and the Super Chief's were model # 67 258.

I will list the 9 I know of. If you are the owner of one of these I list please feel free to ad any info you have on yours.
If you have one or know of one please list it and include serial number, location and picture. ONLY list "Deluxe" bikes WITH the metal shrouds, NO regular Rockets please.
Thanks
Marty
