1984 Schwinn Predator Nighthawk

The Dark Night

1984 Schwinn Predator Night Hawk:
The night Hawk is becoming one of my favorite Predators that Schwinn made.  They are light, responsive and the smoked chrome looks pretty cool.  I found this at a garage sale.  It was hung in the rafters and not in the sale but when asked they quickly decide to sell it.  This bike has Dia Comp MX 1000’s and Skyway mags.  When I got it down it was really dirty and greasy so about 7 hours of taking it apart cleaning, replacing the tires (shot), and replacing the seat (missing) and chain (rusty). This bad boy is back on the street.  The only change I plan on making is changing the grips to a set of all black AME’s.  Feel free to leave a comment.

Smoke chrome is always hot! Also mags but I am biased . . . What are the redwalled tires?
