Default Wicked, Kicker, or Team Comp?

General question on 1987 bikes...

I just picked up yet another sled on flea bay, the serial number is 87403. I am assuming it is a wicked, it was sold as a wicked, but i think it has been repainted at some point...

It does not have down tube gusset, and has chain stay U brake/Rollercam brake bosses...

Is this a Wicked, kicker, or team comp? (i thought team comps had rear seat stay canti studs only)

When (what year) were gussets added to the down tube?

It came with a wicked fork and a box crown fork...the seller states he picked the box crown up later.

the color is blue, the fork was rattle can painted black, you can see that it was yellow before...

seems like an interesting bike, how do i identify with certainty?

if you can accurately measure the head tube angle, a Wicked would be steeper
