Haro

1986 Haro Master Frame, Forks and Forkstanders.

Tyres... Blue Panaracers.
Stem...  Blue Hutch Western Freestyle.
Brakes 880/880 in Blue with Blue DC Cables and Tech 4 Levers.
Pedals Shimano SX in Blue.
Grips Blue Ame Rounds.
Seat Clamp Blue Hutch.
Sugino Chainring on a Tuffnek power disk and sugino bolts
Cranks Redline 401s Flights.

Freewheel Shimano.
HeadSet Tioga Bear trap ii.
Trick Nuts Skyway in Green.
Seat Blue Kashimax Aero.
Chain Green YBN.
And of course got the obligatory Alloy valve caps










My 1985 Haro FST. 
I picked this up at the start of the year and was delighted to get my hands on it.  This bike is a full survivor and left the factory in a Sport colour with Sport Decals.  A perfect match for my Sport that left the factory as an FST

The Spec:
1985 Haro FST Decalled as a Sport from the factory
Haro Freestyle Bars
Haro Trick Nuts
Anlum Freestyle Stem
880/901 Brakes with Tech 5 Levers
Kashimax Aero
GT seat post
SR Seatclamp
Haro cranks and chainwheel
Shimano SX Pedals
Skyway Tuffs with Coaster and Freestyle pads
Panaracer Freestle Tyres
Haro Dice caps




1987 Haro FST

FST or SPORT you decide
Although this Frame was sold as a 1987 Haro FST the serial number and Geometry say it is an 1986 Haro Sport. Note there is no wrap around on the head tube as you would expect and the top tube length says it is a Sport.  I love these old school anomalies.  The Decals are as it left the Factory and appear to be mismatched with the frame and forks.
I Aquired the Frame and Forks NOS and have yet to be ridden.
The parts list
NOS Haro Frame & Forks
NOS Haro Fork standers
Haro Freestyle Bars
Haro Stem
Haro Fluted Layback with Viscount Dominator Seat
NOS DC 880 with the Tech 6 Levers and Locking Buttons and an Oddy Gyro
NOS DC Hinged Seat clamp
Minty Skyway Tuff 2's with Suntour Coaster Hub
NOS Comp ST Tyres 20x1.75
Minty Sugino CT 175 Cranks and a Haro uni-directional chain wheel
NOS Shimano SX pedals
NOS KMC Chain and a YST Black Headset

Every Scar tells a Story on this one.

This bike is virtually stock survivor from back in 86.

BITD






One of my 4 DP Firebird Freestylers from BITD.  This is A chrome one that I had as I got my first lot of sponsorship with a local bike shop called Claude Crimes in Chester.  Loving some of the old components.  Skyway Tuffs with Coaster.  Comp ST Tyres,  Dyno flip down Fork Standers,  Dia Compe MX1000.  No Pots MOD in them Days.  People hadn't heard of a frame whip or Boomerang then.  Your bars used to lock on your seat. 

I used to ride my DP 14 Hours a day.  Oh to be 13 again.

Dave Park was a Visionary and boy were his frames good.

I remember doing them 20 odd years ago and Madferret found a picture from Cologne Germany in 1985 of me doing a Cherry Picker.  This inspired me to have a go at Creation 26th Feb 2011.  I can't believe I didn't finish up eating the concrete.

Now obviously

It almost seemed Criminal to build this bad boy up with all these NOS Components. But what the hell.

Aero Reflex Now sold to pay towards my Haro Master Build



This was My RIDER now sold to Nigel B





This is my retro Haro Sport based on the 88 model. I picked this up because I love the paint & chrome combo - Bike is standard other than the following: Haro Kneesavers GT AME grips Panaracer FS Tyres  and a Haro Silver Seat Fusion Clamp.   I purchased this bike to ride it and ride it I have...  I could never even dream about a Haro as a kid because they were so expensive in the UK.  When you are nearly 40 you get some strange looks when you are doing tricks on your old school BMX...  I love it.  

A Nos Haro Sport Retro.  Sold it on EBAY and regretted ever since




I always wanted one of these amongst other bikes but I am going back to my heritage
