    Found a vintage Haro

    Found this one today. Not sure if It's worth putting back on the road or not. It's a Haro Explorer. It's full Suntour XC Spirt, with Diacomp brakes, and Ukia wheel set.

    Tune it up, chain/tires+tubes/saddle/grease and get it under someone who needs transportation. It has plenty of useful life left.

    So is it something I should put back together? It would be a fast clean up.

    There's two oddities I noticed about it. One, the double bottle cage mounts on the down tube and second, the fact that it only has a double crank rather than a triple. I'll probably star cleaning it you this week. I'll more than likely leave it original, if the shifters work properly, put a new chain on it, WTB saddle, and clean you the shiny bits.

    Looks like the ribbing was more for 'aesthetic' effect rather than for a side mounted genny. Also, the rear tire is of more recent vintage; the Tractor Grip front looks more like OEM.
