This bike is coaster brake... I bought it to replace the same bike I had as a kid... but I swear mine was free wheel. Did the cr mo mag with Redstone wheels ever come as a freewheel?.... or am I remembering wrong?

I’m not finding a Predator with Redstone mags and a freewheel. I looked in Genes catalog collection.

Sick ride!

Not sure about that model..but I can confirm the 86 EX came with either or.  My first one I bought new had coaster brake.  I purchased another one several years ago and it was freewheel.  Therefore, I'd surmise it possible that other models had that choice.

Loving the paint job. I believe it's dated 95, but it's not an anniversary series so it may be a 96 made in 95..I dunno.

Does anyone know who makes the fork decals for a 90's xs predator? I need them for my 97-98 predator.

I actually contacted that dude because it has Black Shadow decals when it’s not a BS. I just didn’t want anyone to be ripped off because of a error thinking they were buying a BS. The description doesn’t mention it so I messaged him and he told me to get a life. :lol:  Ok D bag. Just trying to help you out before you screw over the wrong person. It looks nicely done though. Like the paint job. That silver looks good.

The head tube was what I noticed. Too short for a BS.

I messaged him too. He hasn't gotten back to me yet.lol The paint is stock on the new stings. It supposed to look like the 89 sting with black chrome. I'm sure since he responded to you in that way, he made them changes himself just trying to get over on someone.  It was at $700 with 1 bid. Now it says $600 with 1 bid. 🤔 It actually still has the sting decal by the rear brake Bridge. Lmao

On a slightly related note I thought the Sting repop looked fun to tool around on..
