Haro was founded by Bob Haro in 1978, and is most well known for its BMX bikes. Haro was known as the “Father of Freestyle” and his company got in on the BMX boom’s ground floor in the 80’s.
In the late 80’s Haro started producing mountain bikes. And not just any plain old bike. They didn’t just throw some Shimano parts on a steel diamond frame. They were out there. They made a big splash and that helped make them a very popular bike in the vintage world.
They still sell BMX and mountain bikes, but we don’t care about that – let’s look at the old ones.
