1987 Schwinn Predator 1/4 Dash

Tried to keep this build CLOSE to og, but as things go, let's just say I have upgraded a few parts...

Got this from museum member "Pauljohnson" in mostly original condition, it was all there except the wheels and seat... With a 20" top tube it makes this Schwinn's first "XL" Predator, although they never promoted it that way... I refurbished a "Dominator" seat for her, which is what originally came on these and added some Araya wheels (dated '85) wearing a set of 1.75 "Competition III" tires... The black chrome finish is in AWESOME condition along with the og decals and I also have the og top tube pad that came with it... I changed the pads to the "FOX RACING" pads she now wears... I also switched out the og powerdisc and 43t chainwheel for a Tioga "Max Flo" spider and a Specialized 45t chainwheel... I added a Tioga "Headlock" and switched out the og stem for a Redline XL stem for a little more reach since I replaced the layback seat post with a straight post... The og MX900 set-up just didn't have enough stopping power for me so I changed that to a Chang-Star "Bulldog" copy caliper with a spring loaded lever and new cable... I replaced the og plastic platform pedals with some VP 550 alloy platforms that I refurbished and added ODI "Longneck" grips... She's VERY roomy and comfortable to ride... My new favorite Predator model... ThanXXX for checking her out...
