Looks like a 2015 Pro Series.
Killer deal on some awesome wheels! I love mine; I'm almost tempted to start another build just so I can buy them.
I agree with JP's comment; the chainstay gusset is characteristic of the 1982 Trackmaster-fabricated frames. I have two already, but they're both Pros; maybe I should buy a Long model.
Payment sent via PayPal, but with some complications; I received confirmation of payment, but let me know if there were any issues.Thanks,CGS
Sending payment ...
I agree; either a Murray X-20 or the Free Spirit branded version sold at Sears (a Murray X-20 with different stickers). Based on the hole drilled in the down tube for attaching the chainguard, I would guess this is a mild steel model as opposed to the chromoly version X-20.
Look nice; PM sent.
Sorry; like many bikes in its ~$240 price range at the time, the front triangle on the Novas was constructed from 4130, but the rear was high-tensile steel. See links below, including the test from BMX Action (Sept. 1984 issue).

Nonetheless, a seriously sharp looking bike.
Do you know which model Predator this was originally? Thanks.
My memory might have faded, but I believe the aluminum Sugino GTs were 170mm; the chromoly CTs were the 175mm Sugino product.
Just sent payment.
Is the frame still available and, if so, what are you asking for it? Thanks.
Very cool; almost tempted to rebuild this with some parts I still have from my old one.I raced a Predator TA up until I reached about 5'8" (it's an expert size frame) and replaced it with my Patterson, which is actually riding on the Predator's old wheels (Araya 7Xs with Sunshine hubs).
