98 Haro Zippo/revo (Pic Heavy)

12 posts in this topic

This bike was built for my wife so she could come for rides with me. She knew I was building it but wanted a surprise with what I would come up with. Her only input was "you know what I like."

I started out with what I think is a 98 Haro Zippo or Revo but I dont know for sure. I picked it up on EBay for $50 as a complete.

I wanted to build her a nice, solid bike but with parts I already had to try and clear up some of the clutter around here. The only parts I had to buy were the grips, pedals and front brake.

After stripping the bike down and giving it a nice clean with some Quick Glo (Craigs Cream!) I found only 1 tiny ding and lots of shiny chrome. I decided then I would try for a painted chrome look.

Everything on this bike has been restored and painted by me with a rattlecan. Very special to Ryan for printing me out some custom 89/90 decals. Cheers buddy!

Hope you guys like!
