1983 Haro Freestyler
« on: June 29, 2020, 10:57 PM »
This is an itch i've wanted to scratch for a while. I could have got my hands on one of the re-issue frame & fork sets, but really wanted to find a nice example with original chrome & decals. After looking for some time, Mark Harvey Moon (Hmoon27) offered me this one so i jumped on it. It's an April 83 in really nice survivor condition. I wanted this to be a rider, but built using as many og parts as possible in either original condition if good enough, or re-finished if necessary. Re-issue parts were used (bars and grips) were there was noticeable difference between using these or originals.
Parts list:

April 83 Haro Freestyler f&f. Original chrome & decals.
New Haro bars.
Oakley B1B grips - 2010 reissue.
OG bar pad.
OG Haro Tech Plate & OG number 1.
OG BA Baracus - inspired by a photo in BMX Action Bike Magazine from back
in the day.
OG Dia Compe tech 3 levers (re-anodised).
OG Dia Compe MX1000 (original finish) with centralisers.
Clarks Haro Thunderbolt brake cables.
OG Tange 320 headset.
New Haro flex fighter.
OG Skyway Tuff Pads.
OG Skyway Tuffs - alloy hub front & rear.
OG Chen Shin snakebelly tyres.
Cycle Pro seat clamp.
Generic seat post.
Cycle Pro shot gun II seat.
Sugino Crank, spider & chainring.
Izumi chain.
OG Shimano DX pedals (re-finished).

That's really nice, as most your builds usually are. Frame looks to be in great shape too, and good effort on sourcing those thunderbolts, especially the rear. Much easier than a second 85 pink dia compe then, sorry couldn't resist.
**** WANTED: Early black Comp ST's, Mint Black Shotgun 2 or OG Suede Kashi Aero, Titrons, Black-White/White-Black RadKaps. Thank You ****
