Re: The "Official Unofficial Schwinn Predator" Thread

The newest addition to my little collection, my 2nd 1982 Schwinn Predator Cromo ... Not sure what direction I am going with it just yet... I need some wheels and a cool old brake caliper to get me started... Oh, and the correct forks would be cool too...

Predator Streetwise; can anyone tell me what size frames these are by chance?  Also, tell me about the cmc oval hole rims; did they ever come in aluminum?

Threadless isn't "old school", sorry lol.  Thank you Linn Kastan, Scott Breithaupt, Bob Haro, Eddie Fiola, Martin Aparijo, Kevin Hull, Jose Yanez, Matt Hoffman & the rest for leading the way & keeping the flame lit.  Without you guys we'd have nothing.  (And one more thing; WHATS IT MADE OUT OF?!?! Aluminum? Hi-ten? Cro-mo? Titanium? PUT IT IN THE DESCRIPTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Depends on the year I’d say. And I don’t think cmc ever came in aluminum. But don’t quote me on that. Go to genes BMX catalogs in the Schwinn reference section and pick your year. Should be able to find more info there.

Re: The "Official Unofficial Schwinn Predator" Thread

Well look who's out of "time out"... Nice to see you back brother... big_smile 


OK, so I did the XTC ride my own way... I rode my 20" custom Quarter Dash and got left WAAAAAYY behind... So I did a lot of solo riding and got to stop into Kozy's Cyclery... I caught up with the pack about 3/4's of the way in... They had to wait at Navy Pier for me for about 2 hours... Had a blast!!!


Oh and Aaron, I still have all of your stuff, I'll get it sent out this week... Sorry I missed you at the skatepark...

Cleaned this up and rebuilt it today. New stem, crank, brake lines and levers but other than that it's original. Not a predator I know, but I love promo bikes almost as much.
