1987 Schwinn Predator Free Form Pro

mostly Stock 1987 Schwinn Predator Freeform pro
it has stock Dia-compe Nippon front brake back is Drop Forged Dia-compe rear with springs added to  brake cabel. I swaped out the stock ACS roter for a Odyssey GYRO 2 roter. up graded the brake levers to Odyssey RX.3
stem up graded tio GT meat malet block stem.
the plastic KKT pedals wear swaped for Shimano DX 1/2 pedale
the stock seat post was bent so swaped for this Tioga graber laid back.
cranks stock Schwinn made by SR
BB stock Schwinn
Sprocet stock Schwinn with Tioga crazzy bolts
stock YO rock n ROLL seat
wheels stock YO sealed system 48' with 20.175 torker Grafity tiers by chaing shine
bars stock Schwinn.
pegs front wear stock welded on YO. but they sucked for flat land. + plus you could not do feball grinds with them.they wear a inch and a half round disk. so I took a dia grinder and ground down the welds. to remove the pegs. I saved them just in case I want to put them back. no that there off. I had room to bolt on Haro Fushion grind pegs. the stock back where ok for flat. but I custom ground down a set of standerd industry tight thread pegs to fit on the rear chain stays/drop outs.
well let me know what you think? if you like it make it a fave or leave a coment!

That is got to be the oldest Schwinn ever made? You might want to edit the 1887 Schwinn Predator Freeform pro part? LOL But that is a super nice Freeform Pro.


Looking for an ACS 55 slant stem if anyone has one & possibly a set of Kore Candy bars?

Great work on making pegs work on this frame. I just started building one,and was trying to figure out how I could get pegs to fit on this frame . I looked at the Yo pegs , but I want to ride them. I believe the Yo pegs are for show only.

I agree . eBay has the Yo pegs for 37.00 to 48.00 per set . I am going to try and find aluminum treaded pegs that are 4" plus long. Also, I want ones with good deep knurl, like the old GT ones.I will see if I can have a manchinst mill them down to fit.

I found some cheap and smaller Diameter pegs.     HOME : SHADOWCONSPIRACY
Shadow Conspiracy Little Ones Peg (EACH)
Product #518158
$12.99
They are 34mm / 1.3" . I figure I will have less material to remove. Plus at 12.99 each , I won't free that bad. Also, they are Cr-Mo and stronger then Aluminum. They are not knurled, but I can always put grip tape on them.
