1985 Schwinn Predator Ex

My first find since renewing my passion in 80's bmx bikes.




This bike was listed on Craigslist in Mentor, OH.
I saw it and it reminded me of one of the bikes I had, except the one I had was powder blue.
It hasn't been restored by me, I bought it as shown.
Really great bike, it's clean.
It has some of the original parts except for the wheels (which I plan on changing) and the Peregrine handle bars (I like them, think I'll keep them.)
I still need to find brakes and gyro rotor.

Re: 1985 Schwinn Predator Ex

Here is what the Freeform EX looked like. Notice the EX has the brake line running on the down tube and the brake mounted where the kickstand goes.

Re: 1985 Schwinn Predator Ex

Nice.  Funny, I had the white '85 and gave up looking for it and settled on an '86 powder blue.  I'm in the middle of rebuilding it now.  Good luck with yours!
