Default Help me ID this bike please

I thought the Monster Fat's only had a wish bone stays? Is this an earlier model? Also the fork looks like the standard Wicked fork rather than the later Monster's thicker legged fork. Serial number is 02319

Any thoughts on the year and model of this ride?





Thanks,
Matt

The first Monsters were rebadged Wickeds. There's a timeline on MOMBAT but I think it was 1991 that it became the wishbone.

Ah, I never knew that about the Monster being a rebadged Wicked. Yeah I guess I always thought the Monster started in 1991 with the wishbone, thanks

By 1991, Monsters were their own bike.

From the decals this says to me 1989. Early ones (88-ish) had chainstay U-brake mounts.

Serial?

Definitely late 80's. Primus truly does suck ... Fugazi on the other hand is great.
