Haro Forkstanders

As part of my 1989 Haro Invert build, I wanted the Haro flip-up forkstanders that fit on my forks. This is what they should look like new:

The issue is; looking like new they go for about $200. So instead I ended up with this, thanks to a member on You can see on the second picture the spring and ball had a blow out.

I had one of my friends machine new bodies out of Stainless Steel that are pressed onto the posts. This is how they turned out:

I sent the stand and pin to be re-chromed. I also found a guy in the UK that has the decals in stock. And I managed to find some push nuts @

I got my decals from which are awesome!! Put them on as soon as I got them!

I got the standers back from today. They look really good. 

When I ordered new push nuts, I ordered 20, but got 200, oh well...

So here they are all together. They look better in proper light. So now I have a set that is as good as new. Maybe slightly better...
