1987 Haro FST

My First Completed Project.

My mate had one of these when I was growing up. I really enjoyed taking it for a strap back then. It was always hard to give it back. Man I wanted that bike!
Got this frame and forks the other year here in Oz from a good guy. After some looking around I bought a C4 Labs decal set for it - took me a bit to match the colour but I got a $3 can of Fiddly Bits that matched pretty well. It was painted when I got it, but it didn't match the colour on the decal set.
I tried to gather as much period correct gear as possible for the build - but had to compromise on some things. Bike has Group 1 stem, Redline double pinch crank, Araya 48's. I changed the Haro whitewalls to Primo V-Monster gumwalls as the whitewalls are on my 87 Sport.
Got it done now but a bit reluctant to ride too much. I did take it for a ride on the Gold Coast here the other year on the ozbmx tour and got a sore arse! I don't remember those dominator seats being that hard!
I have recently changed the wheels to some Skyway Tuff's.  My son has persuaded me to give it to him. He will probably ride it a lot more than I will anyway. It is great to have both my boys involved in an interest that we all share. BMX rides are regularly happening with the kids, it's just a matter of which bike to ride.
Thanks for looking.

Dude, that looks sick. You've done a great job and that paint and decals look awesome. Way better than original. The components are pretty damn good too. Can anyone say 'Team FST'?

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

Re: 1987 Haro FST

Thanks guys. Yeah, i dunno, it's a tough call on the vegemite lol.

Not bad for my first build. I have learnt a lot. Thanks to Con Rad, Brindle, Orangecobra04rob, stevenbven, Canadascott, Ultrahive, Chip @ C4 Labs, Sportwheels (Canada), Rini's Old Skool bike shop, good friend Mark, and Brett - guy I bought the f/f from.

Re: 1987 Haro FST

Thanks. Yeah the FS series are cool. I spent a bit on my FST too. Funny thing I have only spent about half that on the Sport. Will post some updated pics soon on both frame sets, been doing some part swapping to get to the finished product I like.

Re: 1987 Haro FST

Thanks for the positive comments. I laid this thing down at the bmx track a while ago mucking around with my mates kids. Funny as. I was sore for a while though.

Now i gotta fix some scratches on the forks and handle bars and get it back to looking awesome again!
