1982 Schwinn Predator Cromo

Rare old Schwinn BMX

I found this bike on CL, took it home and went to work on it. I broke it down and gave the frame, forks, and bars a 24 hour bath. Also cleaned and repacked the bearings.

Items added: Super Maxy 3 piece cranks, pedals, chain wheel, chain, red anodized Nitto stem, Shimano free wheel, new Tuff Wheels, Diacompe brakes w/ stainless steel cables, 4130 layback seat post, post clamp, SE Racing saddle, Kenda tires, and grips.
Looking for period decals to replace whats on it...not much luck so far.
Bike is solid and rolls beautifully!
Thanks for looking!

This is by far the nicest Predator I have seen. Excellent job! Did you do an OA on it? If so what was your ratio? cool


You know, pools are perfect for holding water...

Thank you for the bike compliment too!smile

Love it! I've never seen an '81 Predator like this one but it is definitely a beefed up version of the bike I grew up riding. I plan to build up something like this with one of the remaining '81 Predator frames I have laying around. Thanks for the inspiration! This bike is very nice.

Good job MrOlive!...the cromo is hard to find with the decals being even harder unless you have them made. I wanted some decals for it and put some team schwinn that I got from the chop.
