1985 Schwinn Predator Black Shadow. One of my original racebikes from BITD.

I wish I could find a replacement decal set for this.

Re: lets see your schwinn predators

Nice Predators! My evil brother tricked me not to get an 87 Free Form Pro, he turned around and bought it.mad That made me sooooo mad. I wanted one of those ever since my dad got one and my dumb brother tricks me out of it for himself!!mad I have never trusted his judgement since.

Re: lets see your schwinn predators

Here is my brother's 86 Free form EX. He won this in a drawing, BITD. I rescued it from my Dad's garage. It is mostly OG, I have all the parts that are missing, including NOS pads. I just need to get it restored.

Here is my 87 Free Form Pro, YO! It is nearly completely OG at this point. Missing a few parts. (older pic)

Nice thread. I love the Predators, but they seem to get no Love!  The 86 is the first non-department store bike we had.

Re: lets see your schwinn predators

The 1983 Team Alloy is awesome. That's the one my friend had, and looking back, I should have gotten one too.
