Good Morning! This is my first post after signing up this morning. I have a bike in my shop that I am told may be a late 40s Monark Trophy. It's an orphan in my shop, I'm a Schwinn and Raleigh guy. I would like to learn more about it and get it into the hands of someone who likes this brand of bike. I have too many projects to add another. My main project at present is paying off my mortgage so I can retire! So, what can you tell me about it?

Stem is wrong/on backwards, guard is likely wrong, and its been house painted. There may be a data plate underneath the bottom bracket with a serial to date it. My guess mid 50s base model=not much money. This is more like a dinner at Applebees than reducing a mortgage. V/r Shawn

I did have a look at the i.d. plate and it is barely legible. It appears to read:
Model: 2009
Serial: A0615658
I had no illusion that it was a rare, collectible, highly valuable piece......just an old bike that landed in my shop and needs another home.

I believe that is a '49 serial number. V/r Shawn
