broken Fat Chance

By the serial number, the broken Fat appears to be an 85.

Not having a gusset at the head tube/down tube is not that unusual for the earlier bikes, I have a few like that, up to and including an 89.
Looking at this bike, perhaps this is the justification for the gusset?

I have not seen many with the cable routing above the BB, but I do have an 86 that is just like that.

Regarding the Monster Fat for sale with "special" decals, it is certainly a Wicked frame and Wicked serial number, but it might really be a Monster. The very early Monster was built with a Wicked frame, Monster decals and lesser components. I guess that you would have to check with Wendyll to confirm if this frame was originally sold as a Monster.

I have one of these frames, can't recall the serial number without looking, also have a magazine article/review that tells the story.
