Most Rockets came with the standard Monark double springer, and some came with strut/truss rods. Yours with the single springer is a bit rare. Monark also used a beefed up version of the single springer on the Super Twin, and this version was also found on many of the Monark built Airman bikes. The Rocket Deluxe like yours came with a cast metal shroud on both sides of the tank in the front area where the 3 mounting holes are. Do you have the shrouds for yours? What are your plans for it?

I think most would agree, they are very hard to find. This is what you are looking for! Sorry, I don't have an "after cleanup" photo/
