1987 Schwinn Predator Free Form Pro
Bought this right here at the museum. Same bike I had when I was 13, and super stoked to have another, except it's so cool my wife claimed it as hers!
Want to say thanks to Wesley Hall and the Indian Hills Bike Club in Clive Iowa for restoring and selling me my childhood bike. You all did a great job. In 87 when this bike came out, I was 13, and the kid who hit the bike store and comic store everyday to see the newest goods. Im sure the bike store owner sighed everyday I walked in to handle all his merchandise in the display cabinet, and sitting on the new Free Form Pro ( even though it was pink, I couldnt stay away). One evening my father came home, and I told him all about the magnificent bike for sale, so he said he wanted to see it. In the store I pointed it out, he pulled from the rack, and wheeled it to the front of the store and paid on the spot. I was in shock, I now owned the coolest bike I had ever seen. Nothing in life never came that easy again, and as I turned 16 and got into cars, dad sold the bike, and I really didnt notice. So proud to have the same bike again, it resparked a magic inside of me, and as my fathers favorite saying was " You gotta love life". Think Ill take another ride up to the local bike store and comic shop, riding the coolest bike ever, with a big ol grin the entire way, loving life on my sweet ride.
