1983 Schwinn Predator 24

Started as a Schwinn Predator. I always wanted a 24" Diamond Back with a gusset and as most know they are one of the rarest of the rare.

Started as a Schwinn Predator. I always wanted a 24" Diamond Back with a gusset and as most know they are one of the rarest of the rare. I went to Black Sheep Bikes here in Fort Collins and had them make and weld the gussets for me. I think it came out perfect and I love the ride. Wired, here on the Museum made the stickers for me.

Black Sheep does incredible work and it is all still done out of a garage.
