Haro Monocoque (First Build)

I Just got back into Bmx after being out of the game since 2002. When I was a kid I couldn't afford anything expensive. I rode 1 piece cranks my whole life smile I was also a huge midschool Haro nut my first real bike was a Group 1 Ci. I remember seeing the Haro Monocoque in Bmxplus and telling myself one day I will own one. So at 25 now is the time to finally achieve that 15 year goal of having one with all my dream parts on it from bitd. Not going to lie this had been a 6 month search for the parts for this and I still have a couple left to get. Enough of my background here are some pics. The First is how I bought the bike off Evilbay in May, the second is how the bike originally looked, and 3rd is the Bmxplus cover that really made me want one. I will build the Captain America bike next big_smile

Re: Haro Monocoque (First Build)

Here is a majority of the parts I will be going with. The frame, stem, and bars should been done getting powdered next week. They will all be Black. I really wanted to go with an Answer fork but when I saw those Bombshell forks I had to snatch them up.

Here is an example of my decals but mine will be black and red. The powdercoater is putting them on for me. If you need a set I can point you in the right direction. They are very expesive but well worth it, mine turned out great.

Re: Haro Monocoque (First Build)

I finally have some progress in my build here is what my stem looks like after powder, This stem was in rough shape too. Don't be a poser and copy my style.

Re: Haro Monocoque (First Build)

Just got in 2 of the last pieces for my build.Got the King headset thanks to theframedoc and a pair of spanky Armadillo  from brandonio. Also applied the red Spin decals. I got those from sellhisoldstuff and paid way more thanI should have I thought they were the only set they had and then 2 weeks later they started selling them for dirt cheap and had a large amount of them. Still waiting on the frame to get back from powder at https://www.facebook.com/#!/GroodyBros?fref=ts

Nuts indeed. You should throw up a quick pic of the black Monocoque.
