...........85 Haro FST build thread

It has been some time since I have done a build thread , and since this will be my last build for a while , I just wanted to share it with you all.......big_smile
Like most fans of 80,s Haro bikes we all seem to love the Day glow red FST ,,,,,made popular by Haro team rider Brian Blyther ,,even though the word is Brian never rode the FST in competions as it was to short for his tall build ..
This build will not be a straight out part for part catalogue build ,,instead I am thinking off a few upgrades and am going to build it up to a slightly higher spec ,keeping in mind to still used period correct parts from 85 /86 Haro,s etc wink 
Most of the parts have been purchased and are on there way down under , so I will update the thread as things progress big_smile

I purchased the frame and forks , Bars of museum member getmoney ( Dave ) , he was nice enough to post the items to Chip @ C4 to get the restoration work done on the frame set and get it powdered in Red ,,,,
The frame set is in great shape no cracks dings or rewelds etc only the usual drop out marks and surface rust you would expect from a frame from the 1980,s...
The build date on this frame set is 8511 ,this making it one of the last 85,s built before production of the 86 frame sets started ...wink there are no fork standers and no cable guides on either forks or frame , thus consistant with an 85 ...smile

As I purchased the frame & forks of Dave
