Wow! 8)

I didn't know Haro made a Titanium e-Stay. Now that I know, I have to get one!

What kind of tires? I can't find purple tires with an MTB tread to save my life! :(

Found ‘em! Thanks Mr. K!

Macaw tires.

If you’re anything like me, you’ll have to carefully scrutinize every square inch of this image to find the MTB tires in the photo, because they’re not readily noticeable.

I had to study this image for at least a couple of hours before I was finally able to discover them! :wink: :lol: I think I almost went blind from staring so intensely! :shock: 8) :lol: In fact, somebody told me you can see the ocean in that image, but I still can't find it, and believe me, I've looked.

I found a blue Haro Extreme with the chrome fork a few months back, and I just picked up a 94 Haro Extreme, so now I think have all but one of the Haro e-stay variants.

Hey Mr. K! Wanna sell that ti frame? :wink:

Some of these bikes are real beaters, but they are all restoreable. The blue one is all-original and in cherry condition except that the stitching that holds the saddle material on seems to be loosening.

Thanks for reminding me. I've got a nice one that I'm trying to upload pics of, but RB servers aren't cooperating. I've tried several times on several different days, but no luck. File is a jpg that's less than 512 kB, so it's within requirements. I've also just uploaded pics to other threads today, so I'm not sure what the problem is. Perhaps it's a function of how many pics are already posted to this page?

Sorry to derail this thread and turn it into a tech troubleshooting session. :oops:

OK, rant over. Go about your business...

Bought on the cheap, cleaned and tuned, and sold for a tidy profit. The paint was sun-faded into a hideous two-tone...
