Default My '88? Monster/Wicked

Finally getting around to taking photos of my ride. I know it looks a little rough, but I think it looks right when it's dirty.
I believe it is an '88, defineatly a Monster, be cause my brother & I repainted it from the black frame & green forks. (The paint was left over from painting his '68 Impala Wagon!) Color is House of Kolor Kandy Grape.
SN is 13268M.
Traded a Klein Pinnicle with one of my old riding buddies in '94. It still had all the Suntour XCD drivetrain components on it & a Rockshox RS1.
Current build is:
Classic Deore XT (gold lettering) 2x9 with Paul's Thumbies
White Ind. hubs/Mavic rims
Sychros Pro Post/20 year old Turbo saddle
King headset
Conrol Tech stem & Bar Ends RaceFace Deus Riser bar
XT V brakes & Avid levers
Collecting parts to add a suspension fork (Marzoochi Bomber) but I think I might have to make a 1" steerer tube.
On a side note, I remember reading in a magazine (MBA in '88?) an article about the Monster Fat. Their conclusion? A bargin @ $1000. Especially when a Wicked frameset was $800!
