1999 Haro Zippo (Master Retro)

I never owned a Haro Master but would pick one up in a second if the price were right. Haro Zippos are a little more readily available so I grabbed this when I saw it for sale and performed a retro restoration on it. The Zippos resemble older Masters in a lot of ways while also giving you a little more strength (and weight). I spotted a chrome Master on with these same decals and it gave me the inspiration to build this Zippo up old-school style.

1998 Dyno Zone

The first Dyno to pop up locally on Craigslist since I caught the BMX bug again and I had to have it. It hung for about six months before I finally got around to restoring it. The parts that came with it weren't that spectacular so many of them were replaced with brand new items from It actually turned out a lot cooler than I expected. It sold quickly so my eye is open for another chrome one.
