Completely out of my league here. These two came with a bundle of bikes I picked yesterday. I've found a little info on the Predator, but the Pinnacle is a mystery. Any info from the experts would be appreciated.




Thanks in advance!

As it says on the badge...the Pinnacle is made in Taiwan. There are a bunch of them on the net, most 12" and 16" versions, all with the same colorway, with claimed manufacture dates from ~'83 to '89. No idea where they were sold...could have been low end bike shop bikes, or department store bikes.

Looks very original, though :thumbsup:
Jason

addendum...looks like year is on bottom of bottom bracket

Pinnacle was sold in department stores. This was my first bmx bike I had as a child. Mine was stolen. I think when new it was 99 dollars at toys r us. Really nice find. I haven't been able to come across one. They came with a padset also on them .Yours appears fairly complete except for the pads.

Thanks for the welcome. I normally am on bmx museum but applied here just for this post. If you ever sell this. Please let me know. I would love to have one simply for nostalgia. I have way nicer ones to ride. :)
