I like those snoopy caps. Never saw them before but now will be on the lookout. I just bought a 83 Competition F/F that I am anxious to get delivered. May need to get the Snoopy caps for this new build project.

I can’t even tell you how long I’ve had those caps but I was keeping them in the package, in a storage container, then one day when I was organizing I came across them and thought why am I keeping these in the package? I’m not gonna sell them (I’m a huge Peanuts fan) and I don’t have them on display and probably won’t. Instead of just keeping them in a box I decided it’s best if they were enjoyed how they were meant to...on a bike. My kids love them. They’re on my “Frankenstein” Predator Black Shadow. https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/95057/03a1ac87-a90f-412f-9a3c-477c599793686044dba77f.jpeg

Re: The "Official Unofficial Schwinn Predator" Thread

Does anyone have a streetwise, 1/4 flash, qualifier or night hawk frame and fork that they want to sell? A buddy of mine wants to powder one red for his son so the finish is not important. Actually prefer one that is crusty, just no damage.

Re: The "Official Unofficial Schwinn Predator" Thread

Very cool.  This highlights the one thing I hate about the Freeforms..the tapered forks require standers to be higher up.

Re: The "Official Unofficial Schwinn Predator" Thread

I finally finished my 83 Competition. I bought it as a complete bike last fall but only the frame and fork were OG.  Took a while to find the right parts and the ones I wanted.
  I found a crank that was pretty tough but I polished that and the kkt pedals and they turned out nice.  I wanted some extra legroom so I bought a repro layback post and painted it the way the originals were.  I went with a modern BMX tire as I plan to chase my son around the BMX track with it.
  Anyway I had an 84 as a kid and can’t wait to get out and ride this.  Thought I would share it with everyone.
