It will be hard to get any useful information on a department store bike. Use polishing compound on that paint, and it will probably shine.

The oldroads people will try and tell you that your bike is worth $10,000 absolutely worthless site for getting values.

Foremost was a brand name J.C. Penney applied to their bikes, they sourced bikes from many different manufacturers both domestic and foreign. If you can get a picture of the bike, it may be identifiable though.
