1988.5 Haro Sport

Done!

Sold...Finally got my Haro Sport. Traded my FSX frame and some cash for this '88 Sport frame to Chip at C4 Labs who also did the powder coating. Dropped the parts off and picked them up 24 hours later. Excellent service and beautiful work. Turned out better than i thought it would. Anyway, I built it the way i'd like it. Not the traditional way.  For anyone wondering why my seat post is so high on all my bikes, I have it like that for comfort. I never like'd to ride anything bigger than a 20 Inch bike. I do a few tricks i learned Bitd, but truth is i suck. So I just ride with my kids when i do any ridding. Here's the breakdown:
'88 Sport frame
'87 Haro forks
'87 Haro bars
'87 Haro fluted seat post
'87 headset
Group 1 race neck
Redline Flight cranks w/seald bearings (new)
Dia-comp Bulldog brakes(new)
Odyssey gyro with newer cables
Tektro levers (new)
Anlun stamped folding forkstands
Animal peddels
'87 Haro spider
'87 Haro Uni-directional sprocket
Peregrine HP 48's
Shimano 18 tooth freewheel
Ame grips (new)
Hope you like it. I sure do!

Updated: Peregrine hp 48's, Uni-directional 44 tooth sprocket, and custom made purple and chrome KMC chain, and all the decals are on.
Update! August 25 2014, two days before my birthday,this bike was one of two bikes stolen out of my garage. The sport complete and my haro master were stolen. The sport was on a very hard to reach place. They bypassed the 30 other bikes, passed on the HDTV and computer just to get them. Right now, all I want for my birthday is my bikes back.
Update: This bike has been returned to me with damage to it. At least it is home with all the parts I put on it. The '85 master and profile are still missing.

Very cool color choice!


I would just like to say that I apologize. For absolutely nothing at all. HA HA HA
