Date a Bike

JCPenny lightweight bike. IS there a way to date the bike or is it just a decade style thing?

Have a look at How Old Is My Bike? That might help you figure out something regarding its vintage. For example, this symbol indicates
that the item was made in June of 1979...

There will be other component numbers that might also suggest a probable vintage. Hope it is all a bit of help.

If you could post a link to some photos, maybe someone can help you with the approximate year.
