All My Bikes: 6, Predator

Schwinn Predator Freeform EX BMX drawing

I’ve always had a soft spot for strange looking frames. The Schwinn Predator Free Form EX was no exception. This frame had extra long chainstays that served as a place to stand for flatland tricks. I have to assume the extra crossbar from the seat tube to the downtube served the same purpose.

    toally had this bike in purple. oddly enough, it was one of the best riding bikes i had in the 80′s, more so than my fancy hutches and redlines.

    I had one of these frames, only mine had the platform on the top tube that wrapped around to the loop on the seat stays. I kick myself for not holding on to that frame…. ARG!!!
