Default New to me Wicked

Hello. New member here. Just won a Wicked frame off ebay. I can't wait to get it built up. It was listed as a XL size 20. The seller did not know the year. Can anyone help me date the frame? sn#587W19

Ok I may have found my own answer. I think it's a 19.5" frame size from 1991.

Or is it the 5th frame produced in 1987, Wicked 19"? Don't forget to post pics!

The bb is threaded. It has the tange fork and is black. Don't know if it's og paint or not but it does have decal residue on frame.

a threaded BB would not be original on a 91 Wicked

I was curious about that. The bb was listed as 68 English. I bought the bike from pros closet eBay store. I wasn't planning on a resto or anything. I was probably gonna build it single speed or 1x10 kinda bmx cruiser style. I really hope I didn't just but someone else's problem. Any wickeds come with threaded bb?

That really does look like a Fat City serial number (same dies, in the right place), so I don't think you're buying a problem.

Threads may have been cut. BB may have been replaced at the factory and re-stamped. It could have been a factory anomaly, but if it is, it'd be the first I've seen and "the book" would have clues.

So more than likely this was an aftermarket modification? I'm really curious to see what bb works with the bike.
