Needs love. I’m not sure what I’m gonna do with it yet. Maybe source all the parts to make it stock or switch out the bars with v bars and the cranks with something more era appropriate. Not sure yet.

Re: The "Official Unofficial Schwinn Predator" Thread

Thanks guys, I'm a fan of that blue now. I wasn't sure at first but it went on smooth and dried so nice I'm going to have to try the same brand on my next build.

Re: The "Official Unofficial Schwinn Predator" Thread

BTW, any of you guys have any leads on 90s predators? Post anniversary series, 96, 97 maybe. Still with 1inch head tube? Id take a cheaper 1 1/8 if ones available. I need a project bad, sitting here mostly immobile on pain meds is putting me in a dark place and I need shit to keep me occupied while my kids are asleep or at school. Any help would be appreciated, not asking for handouts, freebies or sympathy deals. Just a legit lead on another affordable frame and fork set.
  Good to see you back Ritchie, I just changed rooms that I had that predator sign you sent me and was wondering how you've been. It's hanging over my loose NECA collection now.

Re: The "Official Unofficial Schwinn Predator" Thread

Can any of you guys get your hands on the 88 predator decals? I can't find an option for them anywhere. I need some for my 88 freeform pro.. getting ready for a refinish on it. Someone tried to paint it up like an 87 instead. I want to go back to the original blue that it once was with the Original style decals. Surely someone knows where to get the decals? Thanks fellas. https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/262687/20211205_15511161d24e9e9c.jpg

Sorry no decals here but that’s a cool bike. I like the geometry of those.

Yeah probably my favorite Predator to ride as a daily. I’ve had 3. First one was all original and rough but I absolutely loved it. Still kinda regret selling it but I couldn’t justify having 2 with not a lot of storage space. Second one I bought and currently in my stable is in great shape. Black chrome is delicate and this one is as good as I’ve come across. I was apprehensive about riding it (figures right?) so I bought another used frame that I paired with a no name fork. It’s my Frankenstein bike that my kids decorated and we hook up the side hack to. I need to change out the seat post from layback to straight. Seems to be more comfortable which is surprising because I like more room when riding.

I'm still riding my anniversary predator. Roomy ride, smooth as butter.
