1986 Haro Sport

My Sport from back in the day.

This was my pride and joy back in 1986 and still is to this day. My 1986 Haro Sport. I got this in late July 1986 from Bicycle Toy and Hobby in High Point, NC after my '86 FST was hit by a car. I quit riding in 1990 and this bike sat in a damp shed for the next 20 years. I retreived it in January 2011 and it looked pretty bad. I had C4 labs rechrome the frame & fork, new Haro green powder coat and resticker it. Looks as if it just came out of the box. Most of the components are original to the bike.

Re: 1986 Haro Sport

nice bike, rare colour for a sport, looks awesome.

can i just ask. I have a set of Peregrine Masters and i've had them for a while and it seems like they've gone a little yellow. Your seems very white, as do most of the other bikes i've seen. Are they supposed to be bright white, can you let me know as i'm not sure if I should buy or start looking for a new set. Look forward to your reply. cheers.

Re: 1986 Haro Sport

Thanks for the comments nv!

To be honest with you, the wheels on this bike still have a bit of yellowing to them when viewed at certain angles. I took these pics about 5 minutes before it rained, so it was nice and overcast which helped them appear slightly whiter than they actually are. wink

To give you an idea of what I was up against, here is what they looked like when I retrieved them back in January of this year:

http://img822.imageshack.us/img822/5200/peregs.jpg

The first thing I did was to spray them liberally with Wesley's Bleache-White, let it soak on the wheel for a few minutes then scrubbed them with an old toothbrush.

I then found this thread, http://bmxmuseum.com/forums/viewtopic.p … 05&p=1 and did what it recommended using Soft Scrub. I decided to be a bit aggressive and scrubbed the wheels with the Soft Scrub and a piece of steel wool. This removed most of the stains and got them basically where there are today.

I also used a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser prior to building these back up to get them a bit whiter.

Sorry for the long reply. smile

Looks great, glad you hung onto it AND took the time to breathe it back to life.

Re: 1986 Haro Sport

Great job!  Very similar story for me and my '87 Team Sport.  I've been thinking about re-chroming, powder, and stickers on the f/f, bars, & seat post.... but I'm currently riding it about once a month at the skatepark with my son and am afraid to fix it up nice and then mess it up!

Re: 1986 Haro Sport

Dude. This may be my favorate profile in the museum. I love the bike. I love that fact that it went neglected for all those years and went to rust.
I love the fact that you restored the whole bike to that perfect condition but most of all I love the picture of the bike in action in 1988!

Re: 1986 Haro Sport

Thanks guys!

I've recycled most of the old parts that were on this BITD. The Itson bars and the Tech 7 levers are now on my Trick Star. The white mallet is now on my purple Dyno. Had to use the black mallet on another Dyno I'm about to submit.

Re: 1986 Haro Sport

This was my dream bike in 86. By the time I saved enough money to get a bike, GT was making lavender Pro Performers and I changed my fav color to purple. I could not give up the green so most of my rides became purple and green. As luck of the Irish would go... So did my sponsor also made there logos both green or purple. "Just Say No!". All works well...nice restore!!!

Re: 1986 Haro Sport

Do you mind if I ask what your total at C4 was? They don't have pricing info for chroming on their website as they farm it out.
P.S. - Beautiful bike.
