2001 Haro Mirra S351 Pro

2001 Haro Mirra S351 Pro

USA-made

2001 USA-made Haro Mirra S351, custom build.  Haro Mirra S351 frame, Haro Mega-fork, Haro O/S crankset with Small Block Magnesium pedals, Haro Big Block stem and Mirra Pro handlebars, Profile SS cassette hubs and Araya RB-J1 Himiko rims, etc.  In my travels I came across an S351 decal set that had a silver background (instead of the factory issue blue found on the frame) so I replaced the set hoping for an even cleaner look.  A real rider from days (not too gone-by) when new school rides didn't all look alike.  - Kevin

Not so fast my friend. wink

One of these days I'm gonna get a good pic of my 04 Mirra. The final "Blammo-ish" revision. Same bike as the first annivesary model. Such an interesting evolution.
They really tried to cross the future with the then recent past.

Re: 2001 Haro Mirra S351 Pro

A-ha!  Fu, I look forward to your pictures!  You are (perhaps with the exception of Duke) the only other rider I've come across who also appreciates the solid feel of the "tanks", as you've called them...but like you said: the fusion of the recent past and new technologies have made for an exceptional evolutionary tale.

The USA-made Mirras and Nyquists were NOT stamped with the classic "haro" stamp, quality was way higher than the regular Pro frames that came stock on the completes.
Also they were sold only as frames from a Haro dealer wink

Big difference in price too. A complete 2002 Mirra Pro retails for $750, this frame alone costs $300+
With naked eye, if you spend some time looking the USA and the Taiwan from close, you can tell the difference wink

Here're some pics from a USA S351 Mirra>>

S351's dropouts compared to the classic "Industrial Strength" ones of a 1999 Blammo:

Haro USA Sticker on the seatpost tube:

Decals say "Pro Model" instead of "Pro Series":


http://img210.imageshack.us/img210/8745/haromirraprousa5oo4.jpg


The tubes are heat treated and double butted.
(there's a sticker on the down tube and its written on it: "true temper sports- VERUS- 4130 stress relieved double butted Cr-Mo")
Finally, on the head tube the "H" shaped decal is replaced by an aluminum plate.

Re: 2001 Haro Mirra S351 Pro

It is heavy. Likely between 6-7 pounds. But you can probably put one together in the 30 pound range.
However, I find the weight of these bikes easier to jump. they are very predictable in the air. If I ever land a tailwhip, it will only be a single, so although I think the light weight bikes are killer(and a necessity for things like quad whips) I'll trade the weight for stability.

Re: 2001 Haro Mirra S351 Pro

new guy here and im nostalgia'ing so hard i almost want to shed a tear.

i graduated highschool in 2003, i rode bmx (street/dirt) through middleschool and high school until i got my license. i dont know why i stopped. i rode rain/shine or snow. i remember being on a custom bike i built on a standard STA500 frame, sun big city rims, s&m fork, s&m dive handle bars, 990 brakes.....grinding on a long piece of concrete outside the city library when a car flies up. i get ready to bail assuming im in trouble. but its a local newspaper guy and he takes a pic and im on the front page of our city gazette grinding at the library!

im having so much fun searching the bike i rode and my buddies rode. haro, gt, kink, standard, theres so many i dont even remember. i rode from 1999 until around 2002. man , those were my best memories. me and my buddies riding around town trying to pick up girls. flatlanding in parking lots, dirtjumping trails, street riding and getting in trouble, going behind a candle factory to get the extra wax they threw out.

so cool man. the reason im in this thread is because one of my last bikes was a haro mirra flair in white. seeing the above bike i forgot how sick these things looked. to be honest they were heavy as hell and not that great to street ride. so beautiful to look at.


current- '12 Specialized Hardrock Disc 29er
back in the day - 00 standard STA500 frame, 3pc profile racing crank, kink chain, profile 44T black jack sprocket, s&m headset, s&m dive bars, s&m pitch for , s&m pig headset, sun big city rims 48mm axles, pr1mo tenderizer pedals, pr1mo seat, dirty harry brake trigger. good times
