1987 Schwinn Predator Free Form EX

sweeeeet freestlyer

just completed this bike for my wife and she loves it! special thanks to hobbes12 for parts hook-ups and also to martimagico for tapping his collection for that rare kuwi rotor! I used to walk by the Schwinn shop in Albany Oregon on my way to Bike N Hike to get DB stuff. It was always a no-no to like Schwinn so I never admitted how much I wanted one of these free-forms. Well 20+ years later I see this frame chillin' on hobbes12's infamous "shelf" and I was able to build one for my lovely lady to roll around on!

I believe Jesus would have rode a GT Performer....carpenters can't afford Hutch.

While urinating, Chuck Norris is easily capable of welding titanium.

Driving a fast Honda is like coming out of the closet....sure it surprises you at first, but in the end you`re still gay.

Re: 1987 Schwinn Predator Free Form EX

I had an earlier Freeform BITD, and really liked the way it rode.  Ive never ridden a newer version like yours, and always wondered how they were? 

Looks killer!  Love the color!

Very nice Freeform! I had this bike when I was a kid, so it's one of my favorites!


I forgot how fun it was to build bikes..
