Re: The ultimate guide to the 1985 Haro Sport/ Master and FST thread.

I just thought I would chime in to see what the experts thought about a couple of frames/bikes I have.

I  have an 85 sport, serial 850304XX, has no knurling, and the cable guides are more on the side of the top tube vs under it.
I had 85030016 sport at one point, but had to sell it.....could kick myself for that.

I also have a 85 FST I got from DansHaros that is 85010109, this bike is somewhere in the middle of the non stamped 84 FST's decaled as 85 and regular 85's that were possibly delivered to factory riders or demo bikes.  didnt know if anyone had more insight on either that what was already posted on here.

Dom,

here was Dan's original thread on it, he restored it and I bought it a few months ago.  its a pretty cool bike, especially with the early serial.

Re: The ultimate guide to the 1985 Haro Sport/ Master and FST thread.

Here's  pics of my 85 sport og paint and decals I'm building up at the moment. A few battle scars but a beautiful piece of 30 year old history I'm sure you'll agree? I'm a bit confused as to why there's no knurling on the chainstays, as I've read some masters were missing it but no mention on the sport models. It's an 8503

Re: The ultimate guide to the 1985 Haro Sport/ Master and FST thread.

I had a March '85 Master, no knurling:

Hutch Fun Facts: All main line Hutch's with digits only S/N (no letters or baseballs) on the rear drop outs were US made and had their dropouts stamped between late '83 and '86.  Obviously the frame manufacture would occur slightly after that, even if they just threw 'em in a bucket randomly.  There is an obvious date code in that the first 2 digits seem to be the month and the 3rd digit is pretty obviously the last digit of the year running from '83-'86.

Re: The ultimate guide to the 1985 Haro Sport/ Master and FST thread.

I have a survivor May '85 Master with attributes of the earlier March '85's - no knurling on the chainstays and it has the deep gusset with very little space between the top tubes and down tube.  cable guides are under the top tube though.   cool

Re: The ultimate guide to the 1985 Haro Sport/ Master and FST thread.

Sorry if this topic has been mentioned before.. i have always wondered what was the benefit with the 86 model haro freestyler fork with lower peg mounts compared to the 85 haro freestyler with higher peg mounts..?  Was it becomes of taller riders wanting more leg room doing tricks..?  Im trying to decide which model to buy & get some freestyler time in again before i get over the hill.. ? i car'nt remember... ?

From my understanding many of the Pro riders from BITD said they were to high so they moved them down the forks for the 86 year models ...........In my opinion the large 87 and 88 pegs were the best of that time period for Haro ............wink

& isn't funny that most consider the high hole forks are more desirable.

I like the 85 and 86 designs myself.  funny that you say less 85's were made.  when I was looking for 86 parts, it seemed harder to gather those up than the 85 stuff.

If I remember correctly, the 85's didn't come out till 03/85(hold up on production). So there is prob less 85 stuff floating around based on production #'s. 86 stuff started about 10/85?

Re: The ultimate guide to the 1985 Haro Sport/ Master and FST thread.

im sure that is the case, but I have had WAYYYY more 85 bikes than 86's.  it took me several years to get a nice survivor 86 sport in blue, whereas I had at least 5 different NOS 85 framesets.  I cant remember ever even seeing a NOS 86 frameset for sale anywhere.
