1988 Haro Master

SOLD- she deserved more love and attention

I let the grail go 
i recently turned to the dark side of new school and simply wasn't riding this thing nearly enough to justify keeping it  I put baby in a corner.... And baby was worth a pretty penny that would square away some of the new school bike bills on the way when the Haro flatland master ships 
We had our fun together and it was time she felt that newlywed love of another man. Good luck with her Jeremy! Ride her hard and often my brother 
Original posting:
Of the many bikes I went through in my younger days this always stood out as my favorite in terms of everything - handling, reliability, looks, color, etc. So happy to have it back. It was the bike I had when my parents were awesome enough to send me to Woodward in the 80s and was what I rode when I was at the top of my game for flatland competitions. Lots of memories with my old master and this helps preserve some.
It's Predominantly survivor and original. Frame, Fork, Bars, Stem, Post, Disc, Clamp, Gyro, Etc.
Switched out the Peregrine Cranks for some Redline Flights for practicality reasons. No Booing please!  The Peregrines were simply not happily marrying the spindle. Since all my bikes are flatland riders I went with the flights for reliability and weight factors.

That's an old pic of me on my original master. Figured it belonged with this bikes story.
Also added updated better pics of bike and a parts listing.

I love this bike to death and ride the hell out of it. (I have probably put more wear and tear on it in past 5 weeks since weather warmed up in NYC than it saw in 25 years. ) it's a bike and I'm gonna ride it and enjoy it to its fullest!

Re: 1988 Haro Master

Turning 40 in 8 days. Took the 88 Team Master out to abuse the old bike and old bones yesterday.

Here's some pics and memories of younger days on my original version of this bike.

Thanks brother! While we do have an open relationship that allows me to ride lots of other bikes while she hangs pretty on the wall, me and this bike are still deeply in love and when I do take baby out of the corner we get it on big time! haha.
