Re: 1992 Haro Ground Master

Does the 87/88 master frame have the same geometry as the 91/92 master?  I realize there are no rear standers but what of the head tube angle and top tube length?

Re: 1992 Haro Ground Master

I think it's identical just without the frame standers.  Chromey would know.  smile

Sounds like a Master "Pepsi Challenge" is in order... need to do some comparison on the frames.
They are extremely similar. but i think the 91-92 Ground Master might be a hair shorter than the 87-88 Master.... I know that the Ground Master was altered shorter than the 91-92 Air Master with the bashguard too.

Re: 1992 Haro Ground Master

Nice thread here!  I found this when looking for 92 master.. I had a 91 back in the day, loved it but broke it in 4 places and bent the forks so bad it looked like a chopper.  Cased a huge tripple dirt jump hmm
Anyway, here are some pics of me on my 91.im sure you wont mind, riding pics from back in the day are always cool! big_smile

Re: 1992 Haro Ground Master

Chromey-
I dearly miss my 1991 Ground Master. Clearly one of the best rides I had. What is the specs on this bike? Howz the Black/Yellow holding up?
