Fond rememberances of Monarks are still in the minds of those who rode them. Listed below are stories and anecdotes about Monarks both past and present. If you have a story to tell, send it in and we'll get it listed asap.

First Monark in Illinois

     This is the very first Monark to arrive in Illinois from Inter-Trends. The date was the first week of June 1972. It was uncrated and assembled by Wally Wallenberg (pictured above) and Hans Dammstrom at Hans' Volvo repair shop in Illinois. When it was brought home to our house my Dad posed with the bike as shown here in our driveway. I raced it on 6-10-72 and won my very first time on it. The picture of me holding the trophy in the Monark ad was from that day.
