WANTED:   Haro Invert or Master sticker set posted by: Primax on 8/14/2001 at 9:42:39 AM
I am looking for a Haro Invert sticker set or a Haro Master sticker set for the Aqua to Mint Green frame from 1989? I am guessing 1989. I have not even seen a picture of this bike


   RE:WANTED:   Haro Invert or Master sticker set posted by Mike on 8/15/2001 at 12:35:55 PM
Your bike should be an 88.
That's a tough order- Master sticker packs were going for $70-90 on Ebay a couple weeks ago. Inverts, FST's and FSX's are more common.
I have looked into having ones custom made, but even with doing the layout and design myself, they would be around $125 per pack (full color, not some lame rub on). There is a reproduction of an 84-86 Master stickerpack on Ebay, but it is far from a reproduction.






AGE / VALUE:   Old Bmx Freestyle F+Fwith Oval Tubing? posted by: Lee on 8/14/2001 at 7:21:36 AM
I have just been sold an old Chrome BMX. It has a double top tube that goes all the way to the Head set, with a gusset in the middle, and one around the seat stay tube.It has teardrop tubing on the Down tube,And teardrop tube Forks.There are no names stamped anywhere though! I was sold it under the pretense that it was a GT Freestyle F+F,but i never thought they did one like this(it seems a bit cheap'n'nasty!!)is there any way of finding out what it is??


   RE:AGE / VALUE:   Old Bmx Freestyle F+Fwith Oval Tubing? posted by Jason on 8/16/2001 at 5:40:01 AM
I don't think GT ever made a twin top tube bike. No idea what it is though.

   RE:AGE / VALUE:   Old Bmx Freestyle F+Fwith Oval Tubing? posted by Durand Wilson on 8/26/2001 at 9:17:01 PM
I think Torqer made your frame and forks I remeber a friend having one along time ago when I was racing but cant tell you anything else about it.

   RE:AGE / VALUE:   Old Bmx Freestyle F+Fwith Oval Tubing? posted by Charles Bingham on 11/11/2001 at 6:39:45 AM
Yeah, GT made a twin top tube Torker knockoff in the mid 80's. I had a friend that owned a bike shop about 10 years ago and he had one down in the basement. It was chrome and looked for all the world like a Torker but it was a GT. It had a set of pink forks with fold out stands, LOL. I tried to buy the frame off him(I told him he could keep the lame forks)but he wouldn't sell it, said he might build it and sell it then.






AGE / VALUE:   stroker original posted by: Jesse on 8/14/2001 at 12:23:00 AM
Anyone remember the the square tube strokers with teardrop mags or what year they stopped making them or even how much it mite be worth?


   RE:AGE / VALUE:   stroker original posted by dave manson on 10/30/2001 at 9:24:54 AM
Yeah, I still have an old maroon colored Stroker frame with a chrome fork. I believe mine is a '76.

I have just restored my 1985 redline RL20 2. I purchased it when it first came out. It truly is in excellent condition. I am currently looking for the original receipt which I do have...somewhere. No joke...I paid $1500 for it. if you would like pictures contact me. As for collectors item, that is what has me interested...What is the going rate for top notch condition.
