My Mirra Pro scores

The Mid School Gods must of been smiling on me the last couple of weeks. I scored three Mirra Pros and parts in the matter of two weeks. The maroon one is a 2000 American made Mirra Pro. It came with Fusion cranks. The white one is also a 2000 and the blue one is a 1999. It's a twin of my other 99 other than this one is a train wreck. Some one pretty much stole all of the really good parts and replaced them with low end parts. Only original parts left are the frame, stem, and triple wall rim. I'm going to guess some one has a Backtrail or Shredder with some killer parts on it. Someone did at least replace the Pro forks with Ditchforks. smile The other two have the original CNC forks on them. Costas (Duke 01) told me about the USA made stem and Chris (Cheaterchris) hooked me up with the bars. Thanks guys!!! I've wanted a American made since I picked up my first 99.

I doubt $50 for the USA...these don't even come up for sale...and most people DON'T even know they existed.
USA ones, in my book come second to the 1983 HARO-Torker Made-Freestyler. Very unique bikes, strong as hell.


These were also DAVE MIRRA's, RYAN NYQUIST's & the rest of the Haro team original PRO frames. (not the ones that come stock on completes)
Complete Pros were very beautiful as well....top-quality parts, and veeeery stable to ride!


I'm glad i managed to have one of them, never going to sell it, never. smile

To each their own. If they are too heavy for you and you don't like then move on. If you find another $50 Mirra Pro and want to ship it let me know. I will take it. My 99 is one of the nicest bikes I have ridden. As Costas said, they had the best parts available on it at that time from Haro. IMHO a Ruby Red Mirra Pro is one of the best looking bikes ever made. But that is my opinion. It may stink in your opinion. But I could really care less. There are a lot of of differences between a Taiwan made Pro frame and a USA made frame. I've been looking for an American made Mirra Pro for quite some time. This is the first one I ran across that was for sale. So I bought it. I thought I would share, but I guess next time I will keep it to myself. Not really a big problem.

As far as Costas comparing the frame to a original Freestyler, that's his prerogative. There are not a lot of American made Haro frames after 84 or so. So in that aspect I guess you could say that they are something special.

Each one to their own wink

You sound like don't even know about these Haro stuff at all....no offense.
"MIRRA PRO" was Taiwanese made and used to retail up to $750.
Now, USA-MADE Mirra Pro was ONLY available as a single frame, handcrafted in the States and used to retail $400 alone........plus that it's the ONLY USA-Made Haro freestyle bike next to the 83' Freestyler wink


90's Haros used to snap almost "like" deparment store bikes (Mat Hoffman knows much about it lol)...and late 90's Blammos cracked for nothing! ALL of these were overseas made.
83' Haro Freestylers are known for their begging of a new era, it's just a respectable piece of bmx history....nothing more (no real technology here)

00' - 03' USA-Made Haros, use heat-treatment, CNC machining, GREAT quality throughout.
Plus that are made not to break whatever you can throw at them.


Down the line...compare how many 83' original Freestylers are submitted on here....to the very few (maybe 5-6) USA-Made Mirra/Nyquist Pros!
Be the judge.

If these are not your not your cup of tea, i understand, but that's another issue wink
To some people these are gold.

Re: My Mirra Pro scores

Ok well next time one pops up I will pick it up and throw it up for sale since I know that they are some what collectable. I see so many 90's Haros in my searches for old school bmx and like I said I have passed on 5 or so Mirra Pros. They ranged from $50-$120

Re: My Mirra Pro scores

Wow - you were born under a lucky star, 1of1547!  Three Mirra Pros inside of two weeks?  incredible!  Despite whether other members appreciate them or not, you have a duty to those of us who do love them to post up pics of such good fortune...

And i agree - with everybody, actually.  They are a tad heavy - which is why we love them.  And a candy apple red Y2K Mirra Pro is indeed one of the best looking bikes I've seen in the last 20 years.  A well-equipped Mirra Pro of any year is a thing of beauty.  In fact, I keep a frame propped up in my office, simply because I like to look at it (lol).

Congrats on the score 1of1547.  And Costas - I owe you a PM.  Hope all is well. smile

That wasn't me. sad  I did have them on watch status just in case.  The last pair I got was in May.  Here is my USA Mirra Pro but sadly it is now with someone else.  I did keep the bars, pedals and wheels though.

If you can locate a Pro for $50-80 you can always buy it, clean it up and make some money out of it. wink

Well said Kevin!!
I hope all is well on your side too smile


These bikes were always in my top list of the must have ones. Along with some GT PFTs and Tours.
Once you ride it, you can never go back wink

BTW, that white pearl USA is also very sweet!
I think bmx companies back then, had still left with some great ideas. . .

Re: My Mirra Pro scores

Nice scores. I've gotten away from riding tanks recently, but still love to see a good tank score.
Those mirra pros are great. I never had a problem with my blammo either(I know Duke cracked his 98)

I'm with some of you as well. An 83 Freestyler does nothing for me. I'd sell it for a tank and a scooter bike.cool
