Re: - OFFICIAL GT AGGRESSOR & Bashguard Thread - pics/scans/discussion -

It was the Diamond Back Tailwhip...
Haro Air Master (looked similar to the first Haro Sport bashguard), Haro Basher (also looked similar to the Haro Sport).
There was also the Bully Bashguard... and the Bully III

I have a Pacific Coast with a bashguard as well... have no idea about the model though. It looks like a cheap knock-off of multiple different frames.
My collection is about 13 bashguards and growing!


Dig out your bashguard bikes and let me know! I'm looking for a '91 Mongoose Hooligan, Dyno Slammer 2, '95 Haro Basher, . I'll consider the others too for the right price!

Chromey, thanks! We were looking for that scan a while back. A guy came on here with a black 90 sport frame and one of the suggestions was to do it up like that bike. I forgot it had an invert sticker on it.

When the bashguard came out in 1988/9, it looked like such an ad hoc design feature on some bikes. 2 extra pounds slapped under a stock frame. The best looking bikes IMO were the 1991 sports and airmasters. The airmaster was a twig though. I think most of 'em snapped. The early sports seemed to be more rare, but now the a-master is the unicorn.

This is gonna be a great thread!

Didn't GT end up owning Morales and Kore?
I'm likely wrong, but I thought that was the case.
