Is this the one that's been on the for sale board a few times?

That'll make a mighty fine ride, look forward to seeing the finished pics. :D

Looking good Andreas! I had my eye on that one when it popped up for sale a couple times. Glad to see it went to a good home. 8)

Excellent work!

The condition is amazing - Also I totally love that colour scheme and graphics

Also I just noticed how for all the 'extreme' and Dave Yates style bendy top tube, the geometry actually looks really relaxed, well apart from the stem!

Thanks Mike. Actually the brand Haro is not my cup of tea (especially the awful e-stay cheapos from the early 90s). But that thing infected me! Late 80s, Team Issue, weird geometry, strange paintjob. As my colleagues from the german board would say: That's really odd! Andreas have to buy it! :D

It will get a full period correct XT 730 build! 4-finger levers, rear mech, Canti and U-Brake are on the way to Berlin. Stay tuned for further informations ...

Better pics:

Work in progress. Latest arrivals are period correct 730 XT cantis, U-Brake, brake levers and thumbies and AME grips. Now waiting for 730 BB, headset, hubset and 6-speed UG cassette to finish the build.

Looking good! Colored cable housings usually aren't my thing, but they really work well with this frame. 8) Nice touch with the Bullseye hubs, too.

Thanks, Mike. The neon orange housings came with the frame and I think they are original. The Bullseye hubs will be replaced with a 6-sp 730 hubset.
