1981 Schwinn Predator

Electro-Forged steel frame... This thing is HEAVY!!! Custom built from the grave up... Yes, I said grave, as this thing died a long time ago...

I acquired this '81 and an '82 Schwinn Predator from quick2 at the Dodge Park, MI swap and show... Both of them were rusty and crusty... With a little elbow grease, determination and some spare parts, this came together very nicely... I was going to remove the kickstand like we did when we were kids, but I kind of like the idea of a kickstand on this... The bars on this are from the '82 Predator, the forks are from a mid 90's Predator, Dia-Compe center pull brakes, Odyssey Excaliber 175mm Cr-Mo stamped one piece crank, VP pedals, Schwinn XS Scrambler tires size 20x2.125, Kalloy XL stem, unknown black and white grips, unknown blk/wht checkered bar and frame pads, mismatched alloy wheels with matching hubs and Pete's Precision Products 44t chainring... I will post a link to the build thread later... ThanXXX for stopping by... PEACE!!! Edit on 1/11/17... Removed the hand brake and added blue ACS Z-Rims w/coaster brake (SO COOL), blue Team Schwinn V-bar pad, blue MX seat, blue mushroom style grips and a 46t Schwinn chainwheel... I am SUPER happy with this one...
