1980 Schwinn Predator

My other 1980 Schwinn Predator, very similar to my original childhood bike except  that it had Motomag II wheels.

Bought this from a member here. It's all original with the possible exception of the seat.

Re: 1980 Schwinn Predator

Nice Predator i have the one with blue decals - i think its an 83 . Something about these Predators that they feel just right .

Thanks, MADDAWG!! I agree with you...the Predator is an iconic BMX bike to me. Thanks for faving this one. :cool:

I saw your '81 Scrambler on here.  From what I've heard, it's basically the same bike as this '81 Predator in a different color scheme.

Re: 1980 Schwinn Predator

I feel your pain, Andrews. I grew up riding an '81 Predator that was handed down to me by my older brother. Rode it all through the 80s and early 90s until it was stolen. Now I own 2 of them...they are my favorite bike of all time.
