A veritable cornucopia of Haro parts

You have no idea how close this 1988 Haro Sport frame and fork came to being turned into scrap metal, so I'll tell you: two minutes.

Yes. If serendipity (and a few bucks hastily pulled from my pocket) handn't intervened, you wouldn't be looking at these photos. The only way anyone would have ever sat on this Haro again is if it had been recycled into patio furniture.

And do you know how much the hapless scrapper would have made? About $1.50. Fifteen pounds at ten cents a pound. Seriously.

This type of tragedy happens every day. Except for Sunday, probably. Most scrapyards are closed on Sunday.

But I got lucky. This time, anyway. And the world is better for it. An aqua 1988 Haro Sport frame and fork, a set of Haro freestyle handlebars, an Anlun Haro Group 1 freestyle stem, a Haro uni-directional sprocket, an Odyssey Gyro, even one Haro flip-up fork peg, all saved for posterity.

Let this be a lesson to us all.
