Yeah it ended early. He wanted it badly so I gave in and shipped to the UK. The shipping wasnt as bad as I thought it would be. I may have another for sale soon though....

Re: 1983 Haro Freestyler

I guess it all comes down to price. I seen it on Ebay myself.. Did you get a good price for it? It seems all my stuff sells to people in other countries as well.

Re: 1983 Haro Freestyler

That's my problem to. I have the frame set, but can't afford to build it up. The problem with those Haro's is you want to do it right..
