Haro Mike Dominguez Freestyler Sport Vintage Series for sale

I bought this in 2014 and have never opened the box which is completely undamaged. The bike has been kept indoors the whole time. I believe there is a haro cap and t-shirt included. Alan’s bmx are now selling a loosely based replica of this bmx. This will only go up in value. Price is £1300. Many thanks Tom 07813644932.

The steep curve in the progression of freestyle riding in the early 1980's gave rise to a relentless flow of radical new inventions. With the release of the HARO Freestyler in 1982, Haro Designs had set the standard for innovation, with a concept that would energise the scene and launch Freestyle BMX into the main stream. But in the spring of 1984, another breakthrough moment in the history of our incredible sport would come to pass.

In the winter of 1983, Bob Haro welcomed a 14 year old, California skate park prodigy named Mike Dominguez to his freestyle team. Mike D had risen through the ranks of the Vans team in the early 1980's, developing his trade along side a talented group of young riders including Woody Itson, Martin Aparijo, Eddie Fiola and his friend Brian Blyther. During his first months at Haro, Dominguez met with company head, and designer in chief Bob Haro to discuss an exciting new concept, a concept that would help to reinvent and redefine the future of vert riding. That concept would become the Haro Sport; the very first dedicated vertical trick bike.

Within a month, Dominguez was seen blasting eight feet plus on an early prototype, known in folklore as the "Single Top tube Sport". In April/May of '84, Haro unveiled the Haro Sport as the Mike Dominguez signature model and Mike would become the first marketable athlete in the history of BMX Freestyle. The combination of Mike's talent, and the vision and creative flair of Bob Haro had delivered a masterpiece. The Haro Sport would become a fixture in the Haro line up for many years to come, becoming a weapon of choice for the most advanced vert riders on the planet including future HARO stars Ron Wilkerson and Mat Hoffman.

In celebration of this milestone, Haro Bikes is proud to release the 1984 Haro Sport Mike Dominguez tribute bike. Built closely tot he specifications that Mike rode back in the day, this bike becomes one of a series of iconic Haro models that will be released through the vintage program in the years to come.
