    Help me with year/value - 80's Haro Extreme

    I picked up this very 80's Haro, and I can't seem to find anything like it online. Trust me, I googled the heck out of this thing. Maybe I have the only one

    Anyway, it's in decent condition for it's age, totally rideable.

    It is in decent condition. It still isn't worth more than $150 at the most. Geometry and riding styles have changed so much, this is isn't much more than a reliable commuter with which you can jump curbs and take gravel paths.

    I'll say! The seatstays are the same length as the top tube.

    Laugh all you want, Dminor.. or try researching those parts on ebay. The pedals recently sold for $65. That's right... the pedals alone sold for $65. The rims, without spokes, cogs or hubs, go for about $40. Old Deore thumbshifters? $35. Crank arms/chainrings- $35. Who knows what that neck is worth... can't find one like it on ebay. I'd bet you dollars to donuts that I could sell the frame alone for $30-$40.

    Believe it or not, there's a market for retro MTB parts.

    Like I said, I tried to research this thing without enlisting the help... emphasis on the word help... of this forum. Anyone have a clue what year it is, or should I just go ahead and email Haro directly, with the serial #?

    I can't imagine anyone paying $40 for a 25 year old rim. As for the age of the bike, I'll guess it's from '86-'88 based on the paint and the geometry. You might also want to post in the Classic and Vintage forum. They might have more relevant insight or at least a way to figure it out.

    Price was for the pair of rims, not just one...

    Your assigment then, y2kh8r, is to part that gem out and report back to us with a complete spreadsheet documenting how you fared. Then subtract what you paid for it. And wow us all.

    Looks *****en ! I dig it! --- I gotta admit , i have an attic full of cool old mtb's and road bikes , to include a Marin Team Ti and a Yeti FRO to top the list, but i spend all my time riding either my new(ish) Santa Cruz Superlight or my Litespeed road bike --- The new stuff is so good i dont even mess with the nostalgic stuff anymore

    That said, that Haro is a damn cool bike --- if it were my size, i would have been tempted to add it to my mini museum myself for the right price
