It’s vary rare these days for a brand to have been around for 30 years or more. With technology moving as quickly as it does, and riders pushing the boundaries of what is actually possible on a 20″ bike, it comes as no surprise to see a ’30 year old’ frame and forks set looking a little different from todays set ups. For those non old school fanatics out there, enter the 30th Anniversary Haro Freestyler First Generation…
To celebrate the 30th year anniversary of the Haro Freestyler, Haro Bikes has reproduced a limited number of First Generation frame and fork sets for sale to collectors and enthusiasts. The frames have been produced entirely in the United States; using U.S Made 4130 chromoly tubing, and referencing the original Torker produced blue print for authenticity and historical accuracy.
With this whole project being very sought after and very Limited Edition, Haro plans on creating 300 of these frame and fork kits worldwide, with a total of 25 coming in to the UK. With a item this limited, Haro have introduced a pre registration system to potential buyers (CLICK HERE FOR INFO). For infomation in the UK contact – firstname.lastname@example.org
This is what you receive if you are one of the lucky few –
• A display box with custom foam insert.
• 1 of 300 uniquely serialized Haro Freestyler 30th Anniversary frame and fork set
• A Limited edition Haro Designs micro fiber cloth
• An Exclusive DVD Edit – The Manufacturing process with True Torch Santa Ana
• A Letter of authenticity from Haro Bikes COO Joe Hawk and project manager Dom Phipps
All this and a slice of history for $995 USD (lets hope the conversion rate is on our side!)
Apparently the first batch of these frame and fork boxes have been given to various BMX legends such as Mat Hoffman, Dennis McCoy, Bob Morales and Bob Haro himself, as a gesture to what they have given BMX over the years.
This may not be your cup of tea, you most probably are too young, but for those that remember you must agree that it is a classic piece of BMX history, and well worth shouting about.
