I've done a lot of Wilkerson tribute / replicas myself.  From one fan to another I have to tell you this bike turned out great.

Re: 1989 Haro Sport Ron Wilkerson Tribute

This was one of Bob-O’s tributes that was killer ! I owned for a bit. The correct NOS grey/white B1B grips were removed prior to my ownership  and currently reside on one of Woody’s Trickstars.

Absolutely. So glad you had a chance to show him the bike in person.
I hope it was a fun conversation.

I just went and ordered a new 2-Hip shirt after seeing your picture!
Mine from the 80s is so thrashed and gross.
LOL

Bad ass that he could see it in person ! Did he have any follow up details that need adjustment ?
