Re: 1998 Haro Zippo

I think I really need to get on one of these retro's. I want a NS bike, but it seems like I always want a new older project more lol.

Re: 1998 Haro Zippo

what i did to the cables was to grind down the ball end that attaches to the gyro. meaning that now instead of a ball end it looks like the newer oval style.i grabbed the ends with a vise grip just below the ball end and grinded them flat on the sides of the ball.this allowed the end to go through the newer school cable stop for the gyro.its just making a round object into an oval object.i used a rotary tool with the grinding tip and vise grips to hold it while grinding them.
