Schwinn Predator Free Form EX

Hi I picked up this bike at the thrift store today for $10. Sorry for the lousy pic. It is a Schwinn (Made by Giant) Predator Free Form EX. Serial# G0785. It is all 4130 Chromoly and seems to be completely orignal and ridden very little. I am a road bike person and my bxm experience is from 1977-1981 (I had a black Mongoose with all gold anodized components ), anyway anyone know anything about this bike? Like the year and if it is a decent ride or a POS?

Thanks!

Well, I honestly don't know much about the bike, but it's a nice pickup for $10.

Nothing too rare, or special, but deffinetly worth more than $10. Nor is it a POS.

Some Taiwanese (built by Giant) Schwinns have a date code (on the right rear axle hanger or on the bottom bracket shell) in the format ‘Gmmyy’. The letter “G” followed by a two-digit month code (01 = January etc.) and two more digits for the production year (81 = 1981 etc.). An example would be ‘G0181’ and equates to “Giant, January, 1981”.

It's been almost four years since the OP posted this, by now he must have figured it out. Thank you for your help though.
