1991 Haro Air Master

1991 Haro Air Master

Searched long and hard for this one. After parting with some really good coin, I was left with a frame that needed more work that it was worth, the wrong forks and a serious case of buyers remorse!

Almost a year after that, I bit the bullet and had a friend who's an automotive fabricator weld up the cracks in the headtube and seatpost tube as well as brazing the gouges and dints over the frame. It's not 'perfect' but it's as close as he could get it. (Thanks Jason!)

My parts bin consists of mostly Haro Master associated parts which I've stockpiled as that's what my main focus has been. I grabbed a set of 91/92 Master forks and kneesavers as well as some NOS ACS Boa brakes and went to see my go-to guy for painting my Haros. The frame was painted in House of Kolor Neon Red, forks and bars in gloss black 2k and the brakes were colormatched to the Airmaster decals I'd had printed. I didn't stray too far from the original look of the bike. Just changed the colors of a couple of parts, the rest is pretty stock.

Parts List:
1991 Haro Airmaster F/F
Haro kneesaver bars
Fusion stem
Haro Krayton grips
DC Tech 77 levers
Odyssey 1st-Gen gyro and silver cables
ACS Boa brakeset (10mm bolts)
Fusion 3-piece cranks
Fusion 44t disc
Fusion pedals
Haro bashplate
Suzue 48h sealed bearing hubs
Fusion 48h rims
Haro Multisurface 3 tyres
Haro threaded pegs

Wow... Looks amazing.
Air Masters aren't easy to come by - this one is so nice!

I've never seen blue BOAs before either. 
Pretty cool.
