Re: 1986 Schwinn Predator Free Form EX

Thankyou! it was a dash to the finish line with this one.  It took alot of suppliers to make this one happen being that the bike is 25 years old seems like yesterday I owned this model off the show room floor Now in decending order I would like to thank you for your comment.  Makes me feel like it was all worth it. Also I would like to thank jerseydevil It was he who supplied the frame right here off of bmx museum. Also I would like to thank richy from CA he was a big time suppler of the OG hardware that went into this build and helping me get that idea right.Would like to thank Sammy from NY for the part he played to in making this happen. Like to thank ebay for the misc. stuff that I needed in this build Mainly ebay seller Marcellis. And all the others that played a part in getting this thing off the ground everyone that I have dealt with on Bmx has been outstanding.  It's a classic and parts and bikes are getting harder and harder to find.  I had a idea of this build(Not so simple to put in action). So thank you sir. Thankyou everybody for proving to me that the dream is not over yet.

Re: 1986 Schwinn Predator Free Form EX

I had to change my cover picture due to the obvious features in the background I thought the picture of the bike was good though.  I will post a different cover pic of my bike shortly until then.

Re: 1986 Schwinn Predator Free Form EX

great bike, this inspired me to pull mine (same bike) out of my attic after 20+ years.  my wheels have yellowed a little and still looking for both pads other than that looks great.  If I can figure out how to post pics i will post one.  100% survivor.  I reguard to mushroom grips.  I have been looking as well but mine came with solid white and all I have been able to find is white/black.  I have the originals but bars have poked through the end on one of them.  Great job.  If you know of any blue pads or redstones not yellowed let me know. thanks.
