1988 Haro Team Sport

1988 Haro Team Sport

*SOLD*

Here is my Haro Team Sport, built up over the last 6 months. It started with the F/F purchased from Umby-guy, while looking for an RL-22 and then I set out to accumulate the rest of the parts. I've owned the original Chrome Master BITD, but this is my first ever Sport. The bars came to me from some idiot on the bay who mis-represented their condition! So, I sent them to Chip at C4 to have the black lower portion re-powdered along with the seat post. I picked up the Haro Team stem from Protrax and had chip redo the top plate. I kept the lower as is, but will likely take it off during the winter and polish it up! I picked up the repo Haro team disk (made by extremevert) from canadascott and the re-chromed single pinch 401 flight cranks from ebay. My buddy Gunluva gave me the sealed bearing BB & spindle and I had Chip powder the clean GT pedals in the same Haro blue as the stem top. Picked up the front Nippon (which I scratched) and NOS Tech 5 levers from Ebay. The NOS Blue lower Gyro was picked up here along with a NOS blue upper that wasn't long enough (hence the mixed gyro cable colors). The polished Peregrine SP Clamp was purchased from Sport and the Peregrine decals for the hubs and clamp were the product of UltraHive (Amazing work!). The wheels themselves were picked up on Ebay ($32 complete!) and were in piss poor condition, but I put some serious elbow grease into them and the finished product came out great. I sanded the side walls down and polished them along with the hubs (by hand using Cape Cod). I also replaced all of the original spoke nipples with black ano nipples for a nice contrast against the silver UKAI rims. I couldn't find the correct era type Haro tires, so for now it's making due with the newer school Haro HP tires. I'm not crazy about the white walls, but they go well with the white in the decals and they roll real nice! I'm hoping to get some black Haro Pegs at some point too. Also, I have a chrome Izumi chain, but like the way the new school chain looks. I had help in choosing a colored chain from StillInTheGame and I think it matches well. NOS Dominator seat was picked up here as well (sorry I can't remember who). All in all, she turned out great and rides like a dream! This bike has been sold to Johnnytr8der! Good luck with her Johnny!

Re: 1988 Haro Team Sport

Doesn't get much smoother than black&blue......I'd stick with the blue chain too seems to make the colors pop better.
Very impressive build.

Re: 1988 Haro Team Sport

Great bike Marcus!
I love the tasty color accents. Looks like you had a clear vision of how the bike would turn out before you even started.

Props on a fabulous wheel restoration too. they look awesome!

Re: 1988 Haro Team Sport

Wow, that was fast approval! Thanks for all of the props guys! I'm really happy with the way she turned out. I think I will stick with the blue chain too JS.  Jason, thanks man - your chainwheel really helped the build too! wink Matt - you're right, I did have the build envisioned from the start; prior to even receiving the F/F from Umby. I knew I wanted to bring out that fantastic blue in the decals to create a nice contrast. As for the wheel restoration, it was very satisfying to bring them back to life! My buddy couldn't believe the turnaround from their original state. Oddly enough, they seem to be happy too, since they seem to roll like sealed bearing hubs now!!! I took a bunch of photos, so here are some additional detail shots. Thanks again everyone!

Hey Marcus, just noticed the custom hub decals and valve caps.  Nice touch!  Funny you should mention my Sport because its no longer green! yikes It's in the process of being revamped white! (If that's the one you're referring to?).  Changed a few things up just for fun.  I'll start a thread later today so you see what I've been up to lately.  smile

Re: 1988 Haro Team Sport

Jason - thanks man. The hub and SP clamp decals were done by Louis/Ultrahive in the Haro blue. His work is phenomenal. Now let me get this straight...you're painting that sweet teal blue/mint green sport?! Holy cow! I love that color combo, but you've got a good creative eye, so I trust it will come out nice. I'll be looking for that thread. hmm

Re: 1988 Haro Team Sport

Stellar job on the Team Sport! The blue and black go great together! I totally approve of this Haro though I'm not so sure on the GT pedals lol
I guess we can let those slide wink

No way man!  I would never refinish that one, that's my NOS 88.5 original paint and decals.  I decided to repaint my 87 green custom Sport I did awhile back.  Was never fully happy with the color and decals I got done for it.  smile

Oh Thank God!!! lol I forgot about the other green with red text. Didn't want to be the type that tells you what to do with your bike, but I was really worried. Feelin better already tongue

Marcos - thanks for the compliments and the laugh on the pedals! Glad some can let that slide. wink

BMXDaddy - I haven't added it all up yet, but it's significant. I'll see if I can do the math and get back to you.

Re: 1988 Haro Team Sport

Thanks for the compliments guys! I'm glad it's pretty much done...now I can focus on my 2 current builds. The first and high priority for me will be my Knight Bikes 24" Proformer which just needs the frame & fork to be powdered and second is the 99 GT Speed Series bike I'm putting together for my 13 year old daughter. I have all the parts for both builds, so I'm just eager to get things going. As for this Sport, I'll keep my eye out for a couple of things I think would be icing on the cake! wink
