1987 Schwinn Predator Free Form EX

Old school as old as me.

Don't know a ton about the bike yet as I just picked it up for next to nothing, but love the style and look of this bike and a lot of the 87's as the year I was born in. Anyways this is how I got it and planning a full restore. Has the yo pro rock n roll seat dia compe brakes and levers, grips even has original reflectors. This bike is 100% original even the tires although some of the worst looking I've seen lol. Has the ACS rotor and red stone wheel set originally pink. Any additional info on bike would be awesome. Thanks and " where to get a new decal set for this bike, please." Also did this year and model come with or have an option for front fork standers and rear pegs if so can anybody reference me to pictures of or details if any thanks. Ordered a bunch of parts I needed ( all original to this bike) but until they come I felt like doing some stuff to it just to brightin it up. So I added some odyssey cables, turbo pink grips and a little pad set as I needed the foam for my predator pads in the mail hope you like it. In 27 years I can only imagine the life this bike has lived and was told it came from a junkyard. When I got it it looked as it had, so instead of a new powder coating on all the parts I'm going to live the frame and bars alone for a bit and enjoy it as it is. I've set a date and on Jan 1st it will begin the complete restoration process.

Re: 1987 Schwinn Predator Free Form EX

man, these are great bikes.  enjoy it, that one is AWESOME and will clean up great (plus the chrome underneath is AMAZING wink ).  And that you have all the OG parts is fantastic.  I also have an EX, same as yours but stripped, and it's seen 5+ feet of ramp air in recent history (but no by my old ass) and still holds up great.  GL with the clean up!  smile

Thanks for the love and great collection. I was actually checking yours out yesterday love the chrome and raw. Had mine been all chrome I'd do it to spec like yours. Plan on taking my time and keeping it as original as I can.

Re: 1987 Schwinn Predator Free Form EX

Exactly what I plan to do just completely tore it down cleaned, regreased every single piece. As much as I wanna just go crazy on it. I'm going to take as much time as it takes me to completely restore as original as possible. Going to possibly redye these wheels as I did my skyways but as light pink as I can. Hope to start this weekend. First pic is newest.
