1985 Schwinn Predator Black Shadow

This was my bike when I raced for Schwinn in 1985. When I got sponsored by Titan I gave this to my cousin. 22 years later he had it still hanging in his parents garage and gave it back to me.

No, I do not. What year did he race for them. I got out of racing in 1987.

Re: 1985 Schwinn Predator Black Shadow

Glad you got you ride back.  There is a Guy here in KC that wants one of those things real bad.  I finally got my Sting and Mark 1 on the site.  The Sting is what I have left from My Days on Schwinn. (National Team)  Never did make the R & D Team.  The Mark was my first diamond shape race bike.  My First one was a Yamaha sock bike.   

Catch ya later.

Re: 1985 Schwinn Predator Black Shadow

Jason, if you find decals please scan them would ya? I will do the same if I find a set. I just bought a frame and fork myself.

I would be definitely interested in some closeups of the decals on your bike!

Re: 1985 Schwinn Predator Black Shadow

I used to have this frame in 21".  it was surprisingly lighter weight then you would think and strong.  I used to rock that same chain ring on it too. Then it got stolen.   One of favs for sure. 

You got it set up real nice here!  Salut
