This guy emails me & says he gotta pair of Mastersports but that they gotta be rebuilt. It's been my experience that mag wheels are pretty much done when the guts go out but Skyways did have a repair kit for Tuff wheels. Does anyone know if these wheels can be saved with a regular ball bearing repair kit.

I can not believe how tense and irritable you guys are over a bunch of old bikes. You need to chill.

Hey Mark M. from GA, Are you really starting a fan club? Do you still have the 1985 GT Pro Performer?

Dominguez rode for Vans before Haro. He was cosponsored by Dyno.

Fiola rode for Haro then for Morales-Fiola with those cool MF "superman style" logos. GT was his next stop. How about Micki Conti and her traveling circus.

Jumpin' Jim Pratt really could jump, honest.

R.L. was in the closet and Buff was truly a fluff, and one other thing, CLEVELAND ROCKS!!!!!

Peace Boys and Girls!!!!!!

Wassup relaxed bmxer,
I use to see that MF logo on Fiolas walls whenever BMX Plus! interviewed him at home & you're right, it was in the superman shaped thing, always wondered what is was. I knew I remembered seeing Mike Dominguez in a Dyno jersey one time. Do you know the answer to the folowing: The first backflip in BMX Plus! This guy rode for Hutch & was on the cover upside down in 85. I remember because his bike was like dark red with black Skyway Tuff wheels on it, juss can't remember the guys name. Also who did Fred Blood ride for before he joined General. Never been to Cleveland, but the Indians are one my favorite ball clubs.
Stay Laxed, Romero

Jose Yanez was flippin' SE was the company that had that 8 wheeler fool, Fred Blood riding for them.

What was Freds other wheeled passion? Did you know who did the stunt flipping for Cru Jones?

   RE:AGE / VALUE:   losers posted by Mark on 1/28/2001 at 7:09:29 AM
Cleveland does Rock. I used to live in Lakewood, and I found some of my greatest old school bmx and freestyle finds in Lakewood and Garfield Heights. The only items I left were a bunch of NOS sets of Safelite Mag-lite wheels (junk) and lavender CW seats. As far as the fan club, I couldn't find anyone interested. I thought the guy was cool...LOL. I have the most perfect NOS 85 GT Pro Performer frame and fork set with the round Santa Anna stickers on it, but I can't find any of the appropriate parts. I did find an NOS GT block stem in silver, but that is about it. I'll concentrate on my 85 RL 20 II for the time being.

SSup Laxed BMX'er,
Seen Rad a million times & I can tell you for sure that Eddie Fiola was Bill Allen's (Cru Jones) stunt double for that movie. My favorite part of the movie is the opening sequence. Just in case someone wants the names of all those historic riders: My Freestylin Hero Ron Wilkerson-Blue Haro Sport on GREY MasterSports, R.L. Osborn-Yellow R.L. 20 II, Martin Aparijo-Chrome GT Performer???, Brian Blyther-Red Haro FST, Eddie Fiola-White GT World Tour, & I think Mike Dominguez was the other Haro rider in the skatepark with the black Tuff wheels. You know what, the movie's ending really pissed me off, what moron in his right mind would stop the way Bart Taylor did & practicaly give away a major payday like that. At least there was justice right afterwards when his lard butt boss told him he would never work again, at least not with a major sponsor. Have you ever seen an 80's movie called BMX Bandits, Nicole Kidman was in it along with two unknown's all on Mongooses with Tuff wheels.

SSup Keith,
Hey man another guy with a Master a year older than yours sold his for around $300.00 on classifieds2000.com not long ago. Yours is right up in that area especialy since you got a Flight 3pc crank on it. Those things never seem to wear out. Keep a lookout on ebay for that Haro Master fork, it'll come up sooner or later you just gotta be patient.

   RE:AGE / VALUE:   1988 Haro Master posted by Keith on 1/28/2001 at 2:28:51 PM
Hey, I saw that Master w/ 3pc. on ebay. That guys frame is identical to mine; I also took the paint off to reveal the awsome 4130 cromoly finish. Well anyway, His cranks are a little different than mine. The Redline 185mm arms on my master have no pinch bolt. Are those flight cranks?

Also It has a profile spider with a 43 tooth pro neckUSA, Instead of the redline 4 spoke chainwheel. I think that it was switched out before I bought my redline proline 800p. maybe my cranks are a later version.

   RE:RE:AGE / VALUE:   1988 Haro Master posted by Mick on 1/29/2001 at 3:48:26 PM

   RE:RE:AGE / VALUE:   1988 Haro Master posted by Rick on 2/1/2001 at 6:47:00 PM
The cranks on your Master are Redline 400 Flight cranks. The 401 Flight crank had the pinch bolt. That crank was OEM from Haro. I have the Haro catalog from that year (with Ron Wilkerson, Bryan Blyther, and Dave Nourie's autographs on it) to verify this.

You paid too much for a bike that does not have the original Peregrine 48s, rear brake, and tires. To top that off, there is rust on it. Sorry to hear about you bad luck there, ace. You paid to much, and I am truly sorry. You'll get em next time chief...Hang in there...

You're right man, that guys reserve was around $200.00 which was all I thought the bidding for it would go. But it didn't, it's OK though see because vintage Pro Bmx Bikes are like vintage hot rods. Some people spend alot of unnescesary money restoring hot rods & so is also the case with BMX Bikes. The 1987 Haro Sport is sooo hard to find, especialy complete & from the photo's in pretty decent shape that I had to get it. Now if the bidding had gone over $400, I might've had to bail out. I'm a mechanic, so hey, what ever's wrong with it, i'll fix.

You must be the guy that knows the guy, that knows the guy, thats selling the bike. I'm really scared because obviuosly you have called or emailed him & told him to damage it beyond restoration. Maybe now I shouldn't get it. Luckily I haven't sent the money order yet. I'll have him put it back on ebay for some other fool to burn his hard earned dollars on, then i'm gonna take the money I would have used on the bike & invest it in your bike company.
