Victor Penner said "If the Monark is a Masi I believe it would be from before he was a Pro riding for Ferretti and Magniflex. A "Monark" for a Swedish amateur makes sense, National Team, National Bike."

This seems correct. Bob Hovey dated the frame as '69 or '70 in responding to Charles Andrew's comment that it was probably a Masi Special. A biography of Pettersson (link below) says "...In the late 60's Gosta Pettersson was the dominating rider on the amateur level in Europe. ..." and says Petterson turned pro in 1970.
