Haro parts

I am having a hard time finding parts for Haro bikes. What I am looking for are crank parts. Who would carry this stuff?

Thanks,
Wyatt

It's Generic Asian contract bike stuff, ask your local Bike Shop..
IE
It's a brand logo painted on by contract order for an importer,
in this case Haro. if the importer is in Brazil
the Taiwan, or Japan or China based manufacturers
puts a different name on it..
thats how the bike biz works.

all the component parts are common..

Any Bike shop can look at it and get it working with interchangeable parts.

Excuse me if I find that hard to swallow. Haro is probably the most well known brand of BMX bikes on the market and any dealer that sells the bikes is equipped to service them as well as providing spares and accessories. Suggest you look up a Haro dealer in your area.

Exactly where did ypou buy the bike that you have a problem getting parts from the same source?

We live in a small town in ND so we don't have a local bike shop. Next time we travel to one that does we will check it out. Was hoping to order parts online as this can be done for pretty much anything else one would need.

Is it a BMX or MTB? If MTB, fietsbob's kinda right. And if it's a post-1990 (probably even earlier than that) BMX then fietsbob's kinda right. Not sure why he says it in a way that seems to denigrate Haro, though.

Haro didn't ever make their own MTB cranks to my knowledge. BMX or MTB the parts you need probably won't be proprietary Haro stuff. There are a few different standards so you just have to find the right standards your stuff is made to and then start looking.

1 piece crank? 3 piece crank? 1/2" pedal spindles? 9/16" pedal spindles? BB spindle length? etc.

Do you know model/year? Got pics?
