Re: 1983 Schwinn Predator

I had one also but with Mags. I rode the crap out of it. Yours looks great.


I was a huge BMX nut in the late 70's, 80's. My first bike was a Murray. In 83 I bought a Schwinn Predator. In 86 I bought a Haro FST. I dropped off the scene in the late 80's. Today I'm back and enjoying restoring older Haro's.

Re: 1983 Schwinn Predator

My good friend growing up when I lived up north had this same bike. His dad bought it for him as a complete from the lbs. I had near same frame / fork I bought from same lbs, that had been a complete, that the shop parted out for some reason. Loved that bike. My friend still has his bike and never changed any parts except for tires, tubes, stuff like that. His kids are off in college, my son (started family way late) is nearing 3yrs old. Talking to my friend about letting me buy the bike off of him, and my son have it once he's old enough for this size bike. Thought it would be cool my son having a bike that was actually one of ours growing up bitd.
