I haven't heard of this before so I expect it's a store brand for some retail chain. Post pictures of the bike and somebody here can probably tell you who made it.

I'm sorry, the correct name is Thunder Jet bicycle, made by The Chain Bicycle Co. There's a picture in my post on Birds of a Feather.

The Chain Bicycle Co. built bikes for lots of people but their own brand was Ross. Most of their bikes were typical department store bikes but they made some pretty nice mountain bikes in the early 1980's. But then they tried to move production overseas and went out of business. I've heard someone bought the name but no bikes are being built. Here's a thread discussing a bicycle similar to yours: https://thecabe.com/forum/threads/need-your-help-what-is-it.15566/#post-77489

Cool headbadge. With that name, gotta be mid-late 50's atomic age.

I'd say both of those are '56 - '60. At some point, CBC started serials with R, followed by the two digit year.
