2018/1988 Haro Master

I haven't kept up with all the threads on these but I remember once that Haro might only be doing the 2018 Lineage models and not the replica 88s. So I just saw these on flatlandfuel.com and thought I'd share in case it wasn't posted on here yet. Pretty cool.

As much as I think how cool these are,I just cannot bring myself to ever ride a bike with threaded headsets again.

I completely agree. I'm tempted to build one simply for nostalgia reasons. Plus they repopped every part basically so it would be pretty easy to build it. I'd probably just cruise it around once in awhile but mainly it would hang on the wall. I love new school geo big_smile

I was just thinking about how this F&F would make a great show piece display(aka wall hanger).

Yep. I was even thinking of just the f/f as well.

I actually wouldn't mind doing a shelf with the chrome freestyler, green master, yellow and mint master.

Re: 2018/1988 Haro Master

I just don't get it, myself. When you're making them look just like the old school bikes with modern stuff like threadless 1 1/8, integrated, etc., why make an inferior version like these as well?

But if I wanted a brand new one then I'd just buy the one that looks just like an 88 but with 1 1/8" headtube.

Someone wants the replica just because of the platform on the dropouts and the unusable fork standers?

Re: 2018/1988 Haro Master

Lol, I think these are old stock that HARO found in a container like SKYWAY did in the mid 90's lol..
Ssssshhhhh...don't tell anyone...


Heres my profound, life changing statement.
Lifes a bitch..PASS ME A BEER.

They're reacting and that's wonderful. It's better than them sitting there doing nothing. I say make them react - do whatever's in your power to move the audience, and if that's where it is, and there where it is with America, sex and violence, then I say project it.

Re: 2018/1988 Haro Master

I have to ask cause I simply don't know..I'm man enough to admit it and I want to learn..
Are there ANY differences between the original '86 through '88 HARO bikes and ALL these new "re-popes" of these models besides serial numbers?
How can you tell a original from the new ones?

And let's not forget the factory installed "points of early failure". Namely the fork tips and top tube plate at the seat mast.

Everytime I see a post about the weak plate on the seat mast.I think about my friend bitd had his crack and got it welded up by a fellow student in highschool at metalshop class with a arc welder.The finish product was hideous!

Re: 2018/1988 Haro Master

Someone told me the seat tube size on the re-pops are a different to make them a little stronger, that might be a good way to tell the difference. They are also selling the forks separately and I've been thinking it might be a good idea to buy a set now in case I come across a OG frame for cheap.

Thank you for answering. You seem to know more than anyone else.
Lol, no one else even commented lol.
So, my understanding  is, basically identical..besides serial, not much to differentiate  the two..
Hypothetically,if someone had the know how and tools, and wanted to..they could alter a new one to pose as an original and sell for top dollar?
Hypothetically speaking?
I know it be a great deal of work/cost and probably not worth it, but anything could be done is my point.
There should be something more to easily differentiate  the two.

It seems like with these being issued it would lower the value of the originals.

Re: 2018/1988 Haro Master

I get the LINAGE and RETRO lines that came prior as they are different but still with the cool colour ways we love..

These are, re-pops.
I like them, just..what does it do to yhe value of an original and can someone get fooled by buying a new one over an original.
That's the best I can verbalize my point..

Funny you should mention that.lol

Pic from spring of 1990:

That's my '87 and my buddies '88 master in the bed of my truck. See that black area around the seat mast of the '88?
Yup, cracked and re-welded. Note the Redline forks on my bike. They weren't the most reliable bikes at the time.

Of course, the silver lining of this was that riders fed up with frame failures like Rick Moliterno, Mat Hoffman and Ron Wilkerson
went on to form their own awesome companies.smile

You'd be surprised how many guys are still into the old school geo. Hell, I was until a few years ago. I still wouldn't mind having one for nostalgia but I just can't justify building one right now if I'm not going to ride it.

That was fixed after 86

Besides the serial numbers like u stated, the quality of tubing and welds I'm sure are more superior than 30yrs ago.
