1986 Haro Master

My first Haro resto.

I was never a Haro fan BITD; but have come to appreciate them all these years later.  Found the frame w/ BB & cranks in a pile of scrap metal @ a CL seller's house.  I went looking @ a potential Mongoose score & left w/ this.  It was stripped of its original color but a 'bit of green was left in the BB shell.  Rusty & dull, but a OA bath & polish brought back the original chrome to 8/10.


Instead of building another catalog or advertisement example, I wanted to create what a dedicated rider & Haro fan would've done to their own bike c1987/88ish.
