2013 Supercross Extension II

Parted out, most parts sold....regretting it.
Modern/Retro rider......Old School inspired built with New School technology.

First flatland bike since 1995. My friend Christian from Argentina and I decided to build "twins separated at birth", I went with the neon green to pay tribute to the 1986 Haro Freestyler I once rode and Christian's is the white one, tribute to his first true freestyle bike, an all white 1986 GT Pro Performer.
Twin top tubes is my favorite design and so is Christian's so here they are. No carpet queens, built to ride and enjoy. I could write a very long story about these two bikes and the lengths we went to put them together but I'll save you the pain.....let's just say it took some 6 months all together, many hours on Skype discussing color schemes and parts and details...in the end we agreed that Haro had the best paint schemes back in the day so that's what we went for. Parts came from different sources, some of them totally unexpected.... and today, the green one is here in Tucson, Arizona and back in October I flew to Argentina to deliver the white one to Christian...needless to say, we are beyond happy with the way the ride and handle. We made sure to include special to us parts, such as Christian's Hoffman Love Handles which were given to him (along with a Condor F/F, etc) by the Hoffman distributor in Argentina as part of a sponsored demo ride, the occasion? Matt Hoffman's first visit to Argentina in 1995. I picked up a pretty dead 1st Gen Haro Kneesaver set of bars here in the forum and took them with me to Argentina to restore and re chrome them and even though they show some pitting still, they came out amazing. Haro Kneesavers are my favorite bars of all time and had many BITD so I couldn't go with anything else, besides, they add that touch of retro awe. Also, Redline Flights and Flight sprocket were always my favorite combo and Christian never had them before so we went with that theme. Redline Flight dual pinch cranks and Deluxe F Lite 25t sprockets.....can you say modern/retro?The crown jewel on my bike is the Blue Haro Lineage stem...an amazing gift from John Buultjens at Haro, 1 of 2 in the world (not on a 24" Master) I can't thank John and Haro enough for this!I'd also like to thank Keith Treanor at Colony, it was a pleasure to work with him and in my opinion he went above and beyond to help us out with the forks and that's why we picked them. Also, thanks to Chet at Ajo Bikes in Tucson who went to Interbike 2014 and somehow got Snafu to hook me up with the Mobeus for the build. Last but not least, thanks to bmxmuseum.com for such a cool place to hang out and get inspired.Well, that's it, I could go on and on...it's been an amazing joy to build these two bikes and all I can say is that they are the product of this amazing sport we all love, the happy times it has given us, the life long friendships it's given us....ride on!

Re: 2013 Supercross Extension II

I love this build!   Nice, bright color says "80s!" without being gross (like pink).  I always felt that a high-end bike better have a lot of chrome because it's tough and looks great.  Your bike has all the looks of late 80's Haro Master with better front brakes and is 20+ years newer.  I only wish I had been in the market for a new bike back when the Supercross Extension was still available with chrome stays so I could've built-up my own like this.  Oh well, I'll just continue to admire yours.  cool

Re: 2013 Supercross Extension II

Thanks PoorInRichfield! That was the intention...to build a tribute to the 1986 Haro Master. I always loved the Neon Green Master, so much that in 1989 I bought an 86 Haro Master frame in Neon Green I found at a bike shop in Northridge. Unfortunately I chose parts that made me not like the bike and got rid of it to purchase a 1988 Turquoise/Mint Haro Master but I always regretted selling it. When I saw this Supercross I decided to build it as a rider because I couldn't justify buying an 86 Master to use it as a rider, at least not at the current prices.
I hope Haro puts the new dual top tube into production so we can buy a modern/retro Haro again! I gave John at Haro my 2 cents....make them in the 86/87/88 color schemes. We'll have to wait and see what colors they come out with but being a Haro guy I'll probably end up buying one even if it's pink!
Keep an eye on ebay, right after I bought this frame, which is a 21.75", a shorter top tube frame popped on ebay for $300.00....they are out there.
Thanks again for the cool post man!
