what is the old school bmx

i just got this old school bmx from the original owner and it is in amazing condition. all the decals were once removed but the original owner thinks it might be a hotfoot but i own a hotfoot like this and the welds on it are crap compared to these, so im thinking its a kuwahara pantera or a schwinn predator (same frames). for the experts i have a pic of the serial number and it starts with an s, maybe schwinn??. the bike has original kenda gumwalls, red mx anodized brakes and levers, red anodized rims, akisu forks and a full set of bmx racing pads. the original owner said it used to have a red plastic seat and red anodized pedals. i hope you can help me out with this one.

thanks michael smile

Looks like a Scorpion ZX to me. I had one of those BITD & remember those dropouts.

Re: what is the old school bmx

i found this 1985 akisu and it is very simular but it has a gusset. look at the chain guard mounts, there almost the same. i still think it looks like an 83 schwinn predator??.

That's not a Schwinn serial and it's in the wrong place to be a Schwinn .

Re: what is the old school bmx

Yea not a Schwinn, don't know for sure. My guess is some kind of Akisu or other dept. store type bike. Very cool though I like it! smile

Re: what is the old school bmx
