My first build ...
Early 85 Haro Master

Mine was an early frame with unknurled   Rear chain stays
Large first Gen Haro Master Bars (Anlun stamped )
Anlun stamped smooth ( not fluted ) lay back
Suntour stamped coaster Skyways
Suntour stamped Redline Forklifter
NOS unopened Haro manual







I finally entered this in the show and shine at MK15 where it gained first place in old school freestyle

Bob Haro 1983 Tour Replica
( Anniversary Frameset No.100 )







This got second place at MK14

Then thanks to Andy ( DTTB ) I got an original super rare early Shotgun 1 with no side holes.
I re-entered this at MK16 and got 1st Place in New School Retro.




Good job this man was there to hand me my prize ...
