1984 Schwinn Predator Team Alloy

Recent build of my brother's old race bike.

Bike's been in the family since 1983.  My brother raced it back in the day.  It was then given to me in 88 but was pretty beat  and stripped of decals.  So I went through it and made it my own.  It was nice till I got jumped for the bike by three older kids who made off with it.  Eventually we tracked it down, but they had trashed it and put a bunch of crappy pink parts on it.  I brought it back to life after sitting since the early 90's.

Yea, Crosby never got the deserved recognition for his sequel and intro to the bmx world titles "Easy Racer". Hahaha

Every bike should be posted with at least one picture with the owner mounted on it. Yours is currently sitting in first place!cool
