MISC:   Skyway Tuff Wheels posted by: Keith on 1/19/2001 at 12:42:11 PM
Somewhere I heard that if your skyway mags become un-true that you can stick them in the freezer and they mold back into shape. Is that true?

   RE:MISC:   Skyway Tuff Wheels posted by The Wheel guy on 1/20/2001 at 7:02:57 PM
No, is the answer to this rumor that has been around for years. Actually a steady hot bath in water will do it to a degree but the bathtub would have to be dedicated for at a couple of days.

   Wheel Clown - everyone is an expert! posted by Jerry on 1/20/2001 at 7:10:06 PM
Don't listen to the "wheel guy" clown. The Tuff Wheels can't be straightened if they are old. Tell the "wheel bozo" to soak his head under some hot water. If the wheels are in that bad of shape (warped), don't buy them. They are not worth putting on your old school ride.


   RE:Wheel Clown - everyone is an expert! posted by jack of trades on 1/21/2001 at 6:45:50 AM
Actually Jerry, while a hot water bath/soak will not always bring the wheels back to perfection, it does work to some degree on some occaisions. It is the only method that the engineers at Skyway will tell you that they have had some success with. If you don't believe it.......CALL THEM

WANTED:   1987 Haro Sport posted by: Romero Branch on 1/19/2001 at 5:07:10 AM
Hey to all Oldskoolers out there who rode hard in the days of Eddie Fiola, Ron Wilkerson, Harry Leary, Martin Aparijo, Fred Blood, R.L. Osborn, Mike Dominguez, Hollywood Mike Miranda, Hugo Gonzalez, Scott Freeman, Eric Rupe, & so on, & had a crush on Lori Loughlin before RAD was even thought of, I'm lookin for a 1987 Haro Sport. This bike was my alltime favorite freestyler, Ron Wilkerson, bike of choice when he was with Team Haro during the 80's. I know this one is difficult but I would like one as close to brand new as possible with either Peregrine 48's or Redline Sportmaster mags. So if there's someone out there reading this who has that bike & I know there's somebody cause I've been seeing them pop up on eBay from time to time, I'll pay up to $400 for it. Back in the days of painted mag wheel bikes, Haro's ruled. GT was always a threat but Haro always had the best overall riders. DMC, Wilkerson, Brian Blyther, & Mike Dominguez alone were an unstoppable force at any show, had Eddie Fiola been on that team as well, it would have been like how microsoft is today but with Bob Haro in Bill Gates place.

Hey Ace,
What are Redline Sportmaster wheels? You must really know what your talking about, chief.

   RE:WANTED:   1987 Haro Sport posted by confused on 1/20/2001 at 7:04:49 PM
Romero -
I'm sure your intentions are good. However, when exactly was Mike Dominguez on Team Haro? I think you are a little off there.


   RE:RE:WANTED:   1987 Haro Sport posted by yeah on 1/20/2001 at 9:01:21 PM

why don't you look in the magazines of that era and you
will see that mike dominguez did ride for haro briefly
at the same time rich sigur was on. he then later went to
hutch and then diamond back.

   RE:RE:WANTED:   1987 Haro Sport posted by Know your stuff on 1/23/2001 at 8:01:25 AM

Skyway will tell you about the hot bath on the wheels 800-332-3357

Mike Dominguez did ride for Haro when the team cosisted of Ron Wilton, Rich Sigur, and Dominguez. Bob Haro had just retired from active riding because of a knee injury. This was the same time that Haro had just come out with the Master and the Sport as complete bikes. This was also before anybody was making intregrated standing platforms at the dropouts or on the fork legs. The first Haro was not called the Master but simply the Haro Freesytler. The very first sport was a regular diamond frame wih no top tube platform at all. They revised it a short while later to have the wishbone toptube that everyone knows.

If you think you know everything, what sponsor did Mike D. have before Haro?

You need to read a little more or is it the fact that you were the first person in your family to stand upright and not be knuckle draggers.

Before you make comments you should learn a little more. It appears when you open your mouth, you just become more of a moron!

   RE:WANTED:   1987 Haro Sport posted by Romero Branch on 1/24/2001 at 4:02:30 AM
To Bill: I apologize, I meant to say Peregrine SportMaster Mags. Peregrine Sportmaster mags are like Skyway Tuff Wheels but with a little bit of a spiral to them & like Tuff wheels, they also came in a variety of colors. They came stock on brand new Redline R.L. 20 II's & Haro Sports in the 80's. They're no longer in production & are very hard to find. Remember, before you post a followup on someone, get ya stuff correct. Thanks to the peeps who str8'ened out Jerry. He probably doesn't know that Dave Mirra once worked for Matt Hoffman either.

   RE:WANTED:   1987 Haro Sport posted by Romero Branch on 1/24/2001 at 4:11:52 AM
To Know ya Stuff: Hey did M.Dominguez ride for Dyno around 1985-86 before he signed with Haro?

   Hey "Know your stuff" posted by know my stuff on 1/24/2001 at 5:56:55 AM
"Know your stuff" is the kind of person who will post here and hide behind an anonymous name. What a coward. He sounds like the load his mother should have swallowed.

   Know your stuff posted by know your stuff on 1/24/2001 at 6:01:38 AM
You are in-correct again. The Sport master wheels came on the RL-20 bikes. The RL 20-II was ordered as a kit (frame, fork, bars, stem, and brakes). Not to sound cruel, but you are coming off as a person that knows a little bit about everything, and a lot about nothing.

   Peregrine Mastersports posted by Not Eddie Roman on 1/24/2001 at 10:23:09 AM
The wheels were Peregrine Mastersports, actually. They were seen on RL-20IIs in ads in the late '80s, whether you could buy them complete or not (and RL himself ran a pair for a while). They were also the wheel of choice of the Dirt Brothers, which is why I have three pairs.

   RE:Peregrine Mastersports posted by Not Eddie Roman on 1/24/2001 at 12:14:31 PM
Hey Not Eddie Roman,
You bought your Peregrine wheels off of e-Bay. Too bad you don't have a whole lot of nice bikes to use them on. I have seen a lot of pictures of the kind of bikes you have. JUNK...

   RE:WANTED:   1987 Haro Sport posted by Romero Branch on 1/24/2001 at 1:49:12 PM
Okay, Mr. Know your stuff,
HA! HA! You're a funny guy. Look I'm not gonna have a words only argument with you on this issue. To argue over the net about things that won't cost you to lose money is somethin only women do. I FORMERLY OWNED an 86 Redline R.L 20II, 85 Haro Sport, 87 FST, 85 Master, 2k Mirra Pro Model, 98 Blammo, 94 GT Pro Performer, 93 Mongoose Villian, 87 GT Pro Freestyle Tour, & finaly an ugly 1985 yellow GT World Tour & also raced BMX bikes briefly & have attended more Redline, GT, & Haro freestyle shows than a little bit so I know what in the hell I'm talking about if I say the bike was called the R.L. 20 II & it came complete. I'm not saying it didn't come as a kit, but I can never remember seeing it as one. I bought one of these particular bikes complete for $700.00 from a local bike pro shop in my neighborhood in the late 80's & it came with grey Peregrine SportMaster Mags. It was two toned red in the front & chrome in the rear with no cable detangler only a hollow bolt in the stem for the front brake. It also came with a Redline Flight 3pc Crank. I was gonna buy a hot pink Hutch Trickstar that day but I was $100 bucks short. I know I'm not a BMX history genius like yourself Mr. Gary Turner, Bob Haro, Matt Hoffman, Bob Morales or whatever bike company ceo you wish you were but I know what I've owned, seen & done. This is all I have to say on this. Is anyone interested in buying a complete K2 DMC?

   Romero, relax posted by Matt D. on 1/25/2001 at 4:33:17 AM
Romero - Who cares what bikes you used to own. Quite frankly, I'm sure you are making it up anyways. As far as the RL 20 II that you owned. They never had one that had a frame which was two toned red. It would have been a red and chrome frame, and the Peregrine Master Sport wheels would have been white, not grey. You are coming off as more of an idiot evrytime you post something here. Further, the RL 20 II originally came only in yellow, white, radberry and turquoise. Yours must have been one of the later, lesser quality bikes without the 5 inch headtube. Sorry to set you straight, but somebody has to.


   RE:WANTED:   1987 Haro Sport posted by Romero Branch on 1/25/2001 at 5:53:03 AM
Only a four eyed GEEK would be sooo knowledgable which more than likely is what you are. I apologize for getting a few details mixed up but I wasn't consumed completely with bicycles back in the day, I did have other hobbies as well like chasin sistas & senioritas. When I said two toned, I meant red & chrome. Red from the front of the frame to just past the standing platform. It had twin tubes just like the Haro Master except that the tubes wrapped around the front of the gusset. And furthermore damnit, the SportMaster mags that came on it were GREY NOT WHITE! And no you're not sure I'm making it up cause you don't even know who the Hell I am, all you know is a name I put on this site & an email address on Yahoo to match. You take simple mistakes people make on here & blow them up with all sorts of insults like your someone who's perfect. This has now become a personal issue so heres how we can settle it, I live in Okinawa but I'll be home in April at which time me & yourself can continue this discussion face to face because continually bashing eachother via the net is for bitches & broads. Since you wanna talk so much shit muthafucka, lets handle this & get it over with. I live on the east coast but I'll gladly drive to where ever the hell your house is & pull your ass away from your monitor MATT!! Juss give me a spot in your neighborhood to meet you if you don't believe me. Bring ya Mom, dad, brother, sister, a gun, knife or whatever you think ya bitchass is gonna need. Respond with a location playa & don't worry, I'LL BE THERE! Any other bullshit comments you may have will make you less of a man so pile'em up but I'm not responding to any other computer only bashing things you got to say.

Romero Branch

What's your deal? Why can't you respect other peoples'opinions? You sound like a real piece of work. Do you really need to come onto this site, mis-represent bikes, and then swear at people? Dude, some peoples' memories aren't what they used to be, and you yourself should admit that. You obviously didn't have all of the bikes you claim, and you come off on this site as a real a##hole. You need to step down, relax, and get laid every now and then. Old school bikes are supposed to be a hobby. No need to get all worked up over it. Finally, I can tell you first hand that this Romero guy is not as serious as he sounds. I e-mailed him pictures of a 1986 Haro Sport he said he was interested in. Instead of being interested, he doesn't even e-mail me back. This guy sounds like a joke, and I wouldn't send any money to him.

I'll be the first one who will say my memory isn't what it once was, dass what I was tryin to tell the playa. I apologize to all the oldskoolers on this site, but people like that guy really piss me off. I didn't log onto this site to intentionaly slam anyone & I do respect others opinions to a certain degree but when people that don't know me slam me on things that I know to be true thats irritating. Say you had a particular bike like the now extinct Morales flatland (sold as frame only) & someone continuosly tried to tell you that the bike you had either was a fraud or wasn't manufactured the way you bought it from the bike shop, you wouldn't be a little irritated. I REALLY DID HAVE a Redline R.L. 20II & those other bikes that don't matter & it looked exactly the way I described it. Having more than one expensive trick bike is no big thing, you didn't have to be rich back then or now to own two or three Haro's or GT's, they're only around $300 to $700 per bike & a few were bought used. Lots of other homies in my area had more than one or two bikes. I never said anything about wanting an 86 Haro Sport & whoever said anything about sending ME money, I'm tryin to buy not sell. You may have me confused with someone else on that one.

   RE:RE:Peregrine Mastersports posted by Not Eddie Roman on 1/25/2001 at 12:50:34 PM
Oh my God. Someone insulted my bikes. I'm so...so...so...HURT. As a matter of fact, I think I'm gonna straighten up, throw out all of my "junk" and start collecting stamps or something. Then again, I probably wouldn't collect the right ones anyway. I'm flattered that someone cares so much about me that they would set me straight. Thank you for your constructive criticism. Oh, and I did buy my Peregrines off eBay. Thank you for following my purchasing career with such avidity. Would you like to be my accountant?

I'm looking for a set/pair of 48 hole/spoke hubs that are new, they don't have to be old school but I need them cheap like $25.00 for the set (if you have a coaster brake it would be better and I would pay more, on that note do they even make one?) I don't have much money and I figured I would just respoke some rims I have hanging on the wall and try to save some money but as I was looking at the newer hubs being $70.00 to $230.00 I was disappointed so I came here. E-mail me at GabrielBox@angelfire.com or post here and I'll get back with you as soon as I can.
