Yep. that post is stock on the 89's.
Looks like the seat isn't stock. but  most of the parts on there are.

Some of the early ones came with an Alloy DK style stem - but yours has the stock 89-90 Haro stem on it.

Re: 89 HARO MASTER - DOA found in gagrage

Nice Master! You've got all the important parts, it looks like all it needs is a good clean up and some new rubber parts and you've got yourself  a sweet bike.

Re: 89 HARO MASTER - DOA found in gagrage

now that I look closer at yours,it also had the blue cables!guess they really were identical,about this bike,since you asked to be filled in:it was only available in 1989,the 1990 ,model,even though it looks similar,is an inch longer,and has a more squared out bashguard area.this frame was originally available in black,red and chrome,in both master and team master versions,the team master having the gorgeous fusion"power series look alike" cranks,and super pros/tech 7/nippons,plus the 2.0 hp haro tire.I think it also featured the dk looking fusion stem.this frame had the same wheelbase as the 87/88 master,and was widely used for both ramps and flat.it had the benefit of not having the rear standers and back then the dump truck/death truck moves were picking up.on mine,I took the bash plate off a few weeks after buying it,and it shaved off a lot of weight.jesse puente was said to have cut off the entire bash section on one of these frames in 1989,a red one,(ending up with what may have looked similar to a morales,lol).the forks were really cool,as they had all those peg positions,although mine broke in less than 6 months(smith decades probably had to do with it)and I had a huge dropout welded onto them,which made them last for years.the angle was spot on on these forks.a drawback was the lack of 990 mounts.haro should definitely make a limited repro run of these,along with the decals,which should be really hard to find,I loved those,the had that famous leonardo da vinci drawing,which back then made me think I was riding something sophisticated,lol,teen years...
