1998 Haro Ultra

Re: 1998 Haro Ultra

That bike is SUPER HARD to find. Im trying to buy one right now, in Chrome of course. I talked to Haro and they said it never made it to their 1998 Haro Catalog, kind of crazy since it was their top of the line bike that year. It looks like a mixture of a Cozmo and Chad DaGroot's 99 Master.

Re: 1998 Haro Ultra

Re: 1998 Haro Ultra

I was going to ask you if those were the Super 7X, that was a great find especially in Chrome big_smile  Im in the middle of purchasing a complete Ultra myself. The guy said he rode for Haro and hasn't rode it since 2000. Just sitting there waiting for me to come pick it up. Has everything original to the bike. Should be picking it up here in the next week or so. I've only seen 3 others besides yours and your bike Tops them all. Im glad to see someone was able to build one and put it together very nicely. Great Job Bro. So how does she ride?

Re: 1998 Haro Ultra

This Haro Ultra , just leaves a Bad Taste in my Mouth sad  Ok u ready for this , well here we go ! In 1997 I met this girl in Roanoke VA. . I was a over the road Truck Driver and I had been Del. Freight from Los Angles to Roanoke and we met ! Things were great and I spent a lot of time with her , and she learned on what I liked to do on my time off,and that was ride ! In Oct. Of 97 we went down to the bike store and I did see in the NEW 1998 Catalog , the new Ultra ! I liked what I saw in the new catalog and Plucked down   
$ 859.63 for a New Grey 98 Haro Ultra ! big_smile the reason I picked the 98 , cause in the catalog it had the Dia Compe FS 990 Brake,as to the Chrome 97 in the shop,just looked Stupid it had a Fusion ABS ! The sales Dude there said, that the 97 brake isn't going to make it,It was a try by air ! 2 months later my Grey Ultra arrives ! Man I was Trucking Thru All The States to get to her house ! That Saturday,we go down to the bike store,and my Jaw hits the shops floor ! I remember that bike inside and out ! Four months later we break up and I leave and truck back to CA. . I must have hit every pay phone to call her and make sure that I can come back and get my stuff ( bike ) and she says YES ! I came back a week later and things go Wrong,heck she won't even let me in the house to get my stuff ! I call the Sheiffe's and they get her to let me in to get my stuff and the Bike Is Know Where To Be Found . I asked her and she said , What Bike ? The cops made me leave ! I was hot ! The next day , she moves out,and I have Know way of finding her . 6 months go by and I get a call at the house in CA . And it's her nephew telling my that the Ultra is at a friends house and to call him ! I call him and says I have a Bike That ur X brought to Me ! I trucked out there to VA and just couldn't never catch him while I was there ! After 2 months of this, he moves ! That has been 13 Years Ago and I think it's time to let this go ! Sorry to Blah Blsh on here, but just want u guys to know that have these Ultra's , U guys put a smile on my Face and I Thank U for that ! All your guys Ultra's are sick, I Just Wish I could Put Mine Up Here Next To Your Guys ! Ken !
