hello guys i just picked this bike up. Im not firmilier with monarks but i believe this is from the early 40s. Its missing the truss rods girps and headlight. I dont think its a 5 bar because its not a straight bar and it should not of had a tank. From what i saw thebstraight bar ones had tanks. And anyone coupd confirm my findings or correct me that woupd be appreciated.

Prewar Rocket, could possibly have had a tank. Nice uncommon bike. I may have a set of truss rods available. Can you get a picture of the complete serial number?

Im going to start talking this apart and soaking it tomorrow so ill definitely add the rest of the serial number then.

Another question just to put out there Do you know if this is the correct rear rack? Im find very similar bikes but most have different chainguard and rack?

I Think its correct as-is. The Rocket was the budget line for Monark and this bike probably didn't have a tank to start with. I don't think that frame was introduced until either '40 or '41. V/r Shawn

Yep, I think Shawn is right, looks like the narrower bar 40-41 Rocket frame. It basically takes the same tank as the post war Rockets, as apposed to the '39 and earlier Rockets with the wider top bars that took the hanging tank.
