ok, here is the thing...

im from Buenos Aires - Argentina,
here in the 80's Decade, import was CLOSED
was reopen in 1993, i believe (when BMX was being erased by MTB)

so.. BMX was something we saw over TV or Magazines
only some kids had the Best bikes because when they go to USA on vacations
they bought some bikes and bring it back with them
....im talking just a bunch of guys, not many

why i started telling all this?
because i want to tell HOW hard is finding any Old School part in here
i try to restore ALL possible OG parts
because some were hard to find, other too expensive to get

so... RESTORE IT !! (wich is the best part from a Project)



This is my Build:

(Thanks to FREESTYLEMASTER, we spent 1 complete Year searching for every part for this project)
then i got stolen, Tech7, SuperPros, Stem & other parts were off my hands, start again, but now im just a few weeks from finish.


That day i was SOOOOO HAPPY big_smile

Ca't wait to see the end result.  Question, do you guys in Argentina have easy access to parts from other countries other than US, like Europe or Japan?

Re: [ STEP by STEP BUILD ]...1987 Haro Team Master NEON YELLOW...[2 Heavy]

Thanks Guys!
cant wait

my Frame is Finished, chrome/paint/Artwork (decals) are finished too!
im will get it tomorrow
big_smile

GT Performer Phene: we have easy access because Internet..
But here the president is not Helping us.
Imports are limited and NOT CHEAP.
Every part i get , customs ask us to pay 50% of total in Taxes
so...if i bought some ITEM for $150 and shipping cost is $50 (Total $200)
Customs here ask me to pay 50% of that $200 total, ITEM + SHIPPING......so i must pay $100 in Taxes to the customs.
WICH IS A LOT
they add shipping cost to product price, yes.. AMAZING but true

so Answer is.. Yes, its hard but we can
smile

I THANK EVERY USER THAT SHIPP OVERSEAS !!

.... THE RESTORE ....


Removing RUST so i can see bones under the skin



Regular Vinegar (5% Acid) 24hs Bath (only REAR end)
Bottles are only to fill empty spaces,
so i can use Less Vinegar and fill More Volume space

http://sphotos-e.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/545533_10150975420408320_1954334541_n.jpg

There is after 24hs
now you just need to use a Rag or brush to get the Rust OFF
http://sphotos-c.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/554738_10150975420538320_1260042992_n.jpg

After cleaning it, i put into water and cleaning with a toothbrush, Dry it WELL (if not Rust going back in minutes)
and then 0000 Stell Wool, and This is what i get big_smile
http://sphotos-d.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/197780_10150975420798320_855828903_n.jpg

After a full clean with 0000 STEEL WOOL
Now i can see rear body is in Perfect shape... so i can be sure that i can RE-CHROME IT

that 5 would be a perfect survivor build. for some reason I like seeing the scratched paint. it looks like it was actually freestyle on. but restorations are cool. subscribed
