1984 Schwinn Predator

1984 Schwinn Predator

My first BMX bike as a child

I picked this up on eBay, it was in terrible condition. Still had almost all of the original parts she came with but they were all rusted. I swapped everything out and used a lot of my spare parts after tearing down two different bikes. When I owned my first Predator I was really young and didn't have the means to put quality parts on her. Gonna eventually give her the respect she deserves and put some top of the line parts on her. In the interim this is what I have done so far. Comments welcome and encouraged.

The Predators are sweet! Super light and affordable... I think there might be-repop decals out there.

GL finishing the build... cool bike

Re: 1984 Schwinn Predator

I have never been a Schwinn fan, but damn that thing is nice!  Great parts on it!  Trade that drinpipe in for a normal layback and get the decals!  Awesome bike bro.  Definitely something to be proud of and something different.  You don't see many hooked up Predators.  I like it!
