Schwinn Predator

This killer Schwinn Predator vintage 1980’s old-school BMX racing freestyle bike was well-loved and ridden on a lot of dirt roads and fields. Originally manufactured in 1988, it was customized with a Skyway Tuff Wheels II black mag wheel on the rear ("which was the style at the time" as Grandpa Simpson would say) and a pair of rear foot pegs (the right front fork is also pre-set to accept another peg). This one was found with a standard ACS rotor and a rear Odyssey brake. Seriously, this thing was obviously was obviously owned by a hardcore rider, and its a classic backwoods ditch-jumper if I ever saw one (and being a former backwoods ditch-jumper, I would know...I once had a bike set up exactly like this one!). As usual, this Schwinn Predator was found in poor condition. After countless hours of cleaning and detailing, it came out looking awesome. The bike's exterior was thoroughly cleaned and polished and was almost free of rust and dirt. The hematite-like shiny gray chrome frame and forks show moderate scuffing and scratches and some decal wear, but still looked awesome after 25 years. It sold, and I cannot remember where this one was shipped to. Scroll down to see the Schwinn Thrasher from 1980!

1980 Schwinn Thrasher Old-School BMX Bike

schwinn thrasher old school bmx

A rare survivor manufactured in December, 1980, this vintage Schwinn Thrasher is REALLY old-school BMX! This was pretty cutting-edge for 1980, as Schwinn's other 20" bike, the Stingray chopper, was still being manufactured at this time. However, besides this Thrasher, the Phantom, and the Scrambler, Schwinn never really bothered much with the booming BMX market until the Predator came out seven years later. This Schwinn Thrasher has classic style, with a very cool gradient paint lob that goes from sparkle metallic silver to minty aqua blue on the forks and original chainguard. As far as original goes, we are not exactly sure what is stock on this bike and what parts are aftermarket. We found it with squishy and comfortable blue OGK Mach grips, front and rear brakes (unmarked), a padded Avocet Condor seat, and the original handlebar pad. The front tire is an original Schwinn Scrambler BX, the rear looks like an old K-Mart replacement. It was well-loved and lightly abused. After our usual complete teardown, a whole bag of steel wool, meticulous cleaning and detailed for hours, it looked great and revealed the years of life left in it. This one sold and shipped to California (as usual!). The Schwinn Thrasher is a pretty rare machine these days, and though it looks totally rad, its a heavy bike and probably better for street riding than real competitions. Man, it sure does look awesome, though!
