When did the head tube gussets happen?

Hi all,

I just bought a project Wicked (#05938) - plain jane black with yellow stickers. I believe it's an '88. One of the differences between it and the one that I bought new in '89 is the lack of a head tube gusset. Was 88-89 the transitional year?

Other interesting oddity about this frame - it has seat stay-mounted U brake lugs.
