I might be interested in trading.. PM me what you are thinking. It is currently up for sale on ebay. Spent a small fortune putting it together with brand new 1985 parts. Everything right down to the dated brake cables and levers

Jim, can you PM me a link to the Haro?
Knee surgery is horrible. Blew out my PCL and Meniscus last summer being rad. I had the surgery on 10/26. Three months post op and finally walking/riding again. Long way to go still.

Yes the bike is on ebay but most people do not know actually how detailed this Skyway is. Its definitely a collector piece. its a brand new 1985! almost 30 years old.
