1987 Haro Sport

1987 Haro Sport

So as I kept looking at all the bikes in the museum I started to notice a common trend with Haro rebuilds concerning colors and decided to do a totally custom color and decal set for my latest build. This is what I came up with. I titled the heading "w/blue components" because after discussing some of the colors with Chromey I decided to buy an all black parts package for this bike as well to see what it would look like also. So I will be re-submitting this bike again in the future with a black Dominator seat, black V-Monster 1.95" skinwalls, black AME grips, chrome Peregrine seat clamp, black Victor pedals and a black chain.  AJ over at AJK Bikes did my custom decals for me and also supplied me with the frame and fork. What I like the most about this bike is I decided to go with a chrome wheelset this time and the bike stops on a dime and I can do awesome endo's with it with little effort. smile So here's the parts list: New Ame grips,  Restored and Powdered Group 1 Stem,  New YST 1" Headset,  New Haro Kneesavers,  New Tech 77 Locking Levers,  New 1" 1st. Gen. Gyro,  New Gyro Cables and Front Cable,  New FBM Rumble Strip Seat w/new guts,  New Chrome Seat Post,  Powdered Peregrine Seat Clamp w/new decal and hardware,  New Redline Flight Cranks,  New Repro. 88`Team Chainwheel,  New Blue/Chrome Chain,  New ACS Freewheel,  New Eastern Pedals,  New Sun Rhino Lite 3/8`` Wheelset w/Sun Ringle Sealed Hubs,  New Ano. Blue Valve Caps,  New ACS True 2.0`` Tires,  New Dia Compe AD 990 Rear Brake,  New Dia Compe 883 Front Brake.   Well that`s about it. It was fun to build a totally custom Haro. It`s nice to have an original that no one else has. Botou888 inspired me to powder my seat post clamp and 2 Fresh inspired me to powder my stem.  What to build next??

Re: 1987 Haro Sport

i like the colors quite abit not over the top but def custom
great job - colored tires might really set it off but that is just my opinion


We have probably met at some bike event.

Re: 1987 Haro Sport

Very nice I like it.  The blue chain is a really nice touch and it pops a lot more than I would've expected.  It's hard to say about colored tires.  If they were the old school haro tires or any old school tires with skinwalls then yea they'd look good, but those are $$$ if you're actually gonna ride the bike.  The new 1.90 and 2.1 blue tires can sometimes be "too much" on some of the new bikes.  Anyway I agree that it's nice to see a personalized custom bike resto and it turned out really well.  Is this a rider?

Re: 1987 Haro Sport

Looks awesome, generally I only like rebuilds that are true to the original design, but this is great. What I really like is that even though the colour is different and the parts are different, it looks really SHARP!

Re: 1987 Haro Sport

Sweet mate. Its nice to see something a little different, the decals are great. I am doing something like it thanks to a clear set of Team Sport 88 decals (thanks to 1nicemustang). I am not giving anything away. Finishing my 88 team master then its on. Good work mate.

Re: 1987 Haro Sport

Ok so I took Psycho's advice and snapped a couple of photos outside.  Not sure I guess it looks a little different when the light hits the colors?

Re: 1987 Haro Sport

Thanks man, I appreciate that!  The Gyro cables are NOS though.  wink  Got the entire Gyro with cables from alcyon here at the museum.  Hmm never thought but maybe a guy could reproduce those decals?  smile

Re: 1987 Haro Sport

So I tried the all black look and DID NOT LIKE IT.  I then realized why I decided to a totally custom build.  smile

Re: 1987 Haro Sport

Wow. This bike looks so cool! I love the color scheme. I'm prepping my Trickstar for a fire engine red electro-stat paint job right now and am not really sure where to go with it parts wise. I've got white Odyssey linear cables on it now, so I'm thinking red chrome and white... any suggestions would be appreciated greatly. I have been riding BMX since 1979, but am very new to the museum, and re-building bikes with out the benefit of Rockville BMX is all new to me.


What I should have said, was nothing.
