1984 Haro Master

84 Haro Master. Freshly reincarnated.

My brother got this bike slightly used in '85 at the LBS. I had just got my '85 Mongoose Californian for my birthday in August and he got the Haro on his birthday in October. Over time with swapping parts and doing what kids do with bikes there wasn't much left of either bike. I did manage to hold onto the F/F and cranksets for both bikes. Been dragging them around for the past 25+ years. I've managed to keep up with them through moving from home after I got married, and through 4 other moves since then. So, when I decided last February that I wanted to put a bike together to ride back and forth to the neighborhood pool I went and pulled the old Haro off a nail hanging in my shed. Found the forks under the lawn mower and then found the cranks as well. Even found the seat clamp that was on it back then. Had the F/F powder coated in white and started looking for stuff.   Re-stickered it and put it back together. Looks mostly like it did BITD. I can't remember what color tires or seat it had back then or what bars were on it. So I went for the classy White/Blue combo. I think it works pretty well.

Re: 1984 Haro Master

Very nice, but I would add a potts modification. Even if you´re not going for tricks, it will save the new powder on the downtube.

Not sure how a Potts mod would save the powder on the down tube (?) as the front brake cable doesn't touch anything, including the handlebars. I have plans to add a ACS Rotor once I can find one reasonable and then I would do the Potts mod. It always seemed kinda weird to have the Potts mod and no rotor. It's like, I'm halfway there to being able to spin my bars without tangling the cables. :lol:      To all, thanks for the comments !  :cool:

Re: 1984 Haro Master

If the bike is not just hanging around on the wall, the bars will turn from time to time. On my BITD Redline RL 20 I had potts and no rotor. Watch old Eddie vids. He is always spinning the bars back. It is just the way it was back then. Anyway, just an idea. :D

HA- I get what you're saying now. Yes, if you tried to flip the bars 180 the cable would hit the down tube.(!) I thought you just meant during normal riding something was going on..which I couldn't figure out what it could be. Anyway, bike's only been back together for a month or so, the rotor/Potts mod is on the list. Thanks for looking and commenting. :cool:
