Default serial number

what makes you say that it is a Wicked? It looks like the serial number to an 86 Fat Chance and the Wicked came out after that

1986 Fat Chance. Well before the Wicked ever came out, regardless of the decals on the frame.

So these serial numbers are not able to be decoded past the first two digits, which means the year?

To my knowledge, not that one. Fat had a number of serial number schemes over the years and across models. That one looks like "year-frame number" to me, and not sizing. Tape measure is the easiest way to 'decode' that
