1987 Schwinn Predator Free Form Pro

80s Freestyle Goodness!  Free From Pro, YO!

I bought this as a f/f and bars at a swap meet. At this point it is almost complete, with a few personal modifications. No serial # on this bike, not sure if it was removed or covered by paint/chrome.  Dyno drainpipe added for comfort. I have found the proper Arraya 7x 48-hole laced to a Yo! hub on front. The rear is a 36 Arraya with an unknown hub. I found a YO! freestyle brake to put in the front in place of a DC Nippon. Kenda Black Claw tires (YO! copies).  YO! Rock'n'Roll seat. ACS stem and rotor.  SR 175mm cranks (Originally would have had Sugino 175mm) with a sealed BB.  YO! AY-bombs on the rear axles.  Tioga pedals.
Just a great rider, and my bike to practice freestyle on.

Cool bike, parts and Motocykes. smile
I've always liked this frame w/ the brace bar, rear top tube standing platform and welded fork pegs.
What's the dome-like rear peg for? Cheers.

Curious if the bombs are 24 tpi and if your axle was 24tpi to begin with... I've got a blue pro and the bombs don't fit.
