1985 haro master build off bike

I have been wanting to build myself something really nice but haven't really had the motivation to do it into there was a build off for the spring. I am not an originalist at all. I think all
Bikes, cars, houses, etc should be built to the personality of the individual.
     This build started off with this. I got it for free from a friend but I am more of a mid-school guy.

      I almost traded it for a redline fork for my rl20b but Ed of Eds bike shop of Cedar Lake, In. Had this laying around and thought that this would be a better trade. 1985 Haro Master. Browsing the paint section at Home Depot I found a seaglass that really caught my eye so I decided this was going to be the base color.https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/82308/img_18925b1303d7cb.jpg
     I took my daughter and my friend to the Midwest bike show and found this. I thought it would make a great addition to this build.https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/82308/img_23625b13055d45.jpg
I had to strip the spraybomb, smooth the rough edges with a file then I sanded and polished it then painted it.
     I had these Supra triple walled hoops laying around and really wanted to use them but the chrome was rough and after posting a thread about removing the chrome I figured I would try to save them. After getting them sandblasted I sanded em and painted em to match the frame and laced em to my sealed Hoffman hubs which have been my riders for years but like the Supras the chrome was horrible.https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/82308/img_26385b13072026.jpg
     A member here hooked me up with these pedals and I decided that they would look great on this build because of the raised letters.https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/82308/img_26185b1307ad3d.jpg
     The ACS BOAs I used on this build has a backstory as well. I bought a 93 gt pro freestyle tour for a hundred bucks. I only wanted the parts and not the frame and fork and so after my friend got the frame and fork he hounded me for the rest of the parts. (Sorry James but these brakes look better on this build.)
     I didn't want to go with a gyro because everyone does the gyro. Instead I had this rotor laying around and I thought it would be perfect for this build and after installing it I didn't realize I needed a tab on the frame. Luckily a member on here that also works at the bike shops here local to me had the bearing cups for the rotor! Thanks Sean!
     Finally the decals. After calling around and trying to figure a way to make custom decals I just said forget it and went straight to Haro itself and ordered them online. Little did I know there is a warehouse in Ohio. They let me go there and pick them up directly instead of shipping them. This was an adventure on its own because I got to take a tour!https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/82308/img_27995b130a3581.jpg

After many hours just trying to get it right I finally finished just hours before the submission deadline! I think this is by far the nicest build I have ever done! My wife asked me if I was selling it. I smiled and said "yea if I was offered a "g" i can't wait to ride the hell out of this beast! Camping can't come soon enough!https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/82308/img_28525b130b19b6.jpg

Yes I picked seaglass green which is a flat color and sprayed it with a clear gloss. I should have had it powdercoated though since I am not that good at spray painting
