1987 Haro Group 1 RS1

Haro and Pete join forces for all three National #1 Pro Plates in one year

Some artistic license to present my modern day interpretation of an RS1 if Haro would have allowed me to build them a bike that Pistol Pete Loncarevich would have rode into BMX history's only #1's in ABA-NBL-USBA  for 1987-88 race campaigns.  The serial # points to a Fall of '87 manufacture date. My media research of an Official BMX Action  Test in the 06.1987 issue confirms 1987 model - frame has a black painted front: head tube & fork .  ('86's had black mid section and '88's had gray front ends.)  This fine frame,fork and bars came from an outstanding BMX Museum member. Judging from his stable of goods she's OG paint & decals -if she's not OG then somebody before me did a really nice job on the paint and applying the decals. I polished the tiny rust spots on the weep holes along with the very light peppering on the chrome so I am going to stick to my story: OG... and let the debate begin.  :)

No need for a layback and a very light front end. Also interesting tid-bit: the Factory Haro boys and their personal race bikes/forks for in 1987: Pete ran a CW fork, Mikey King ran Hutch forks and Danny Millwee ran GT forks.-see BMXA 06.1989
