Hey Juggs....heres a pic of my Chrome Sport.



Okay...gotta ask.  What year is this, and wear are the awful L shaped rear platforms on the Sports/Masters from the 80's?  That was one of the reasons I never really rode a Master/Sport. 

Did you hack it somehow, or is this a 90's version I have forgot about?

Looks like a retro sport, I think it was released in 2006...

If you are for real, you probably spend enough time on your bike that there's no time left for talking sh*t on message boards.

Of course, if all you do is talk sh*t on message boards, you're probably not as good or as cool as you think you are.

Hey Juggs...also, did you hack those rear platforms off, or did you get them like that?  I noticed Timo "2 Fresh" hacked his off his red one too. 

I hacked my rear platforms off my General.  Seems like everyone did.  I was thinking about how a lot of people hacked stuff off back in the 80's.  I had a pair of Hutch forks that I loved(the dropouts were double thick), but hated the pegs welded on...so I hacked those off too. 

Anywho, these Generals are coming along nice.  I love the all school mix.  Classic and functional.

Passed on it so fellow member "dug" could buy it. I did however buy some raw St.Martin Unique pegs of JohnU, which I polished up ...Looks awesome. I have had a set of these in Black on it for a while which will go on #2. Pix soon.

Thanks John!! ;D

NICE!  for those out the olds school loop, this bike was actually the preferred choice of the evolving flatlander OVER the haro master. The top tube made it lighter and roomier.  Master was still cool because it had the fresh kneesavers.  Best of both worlds going on here.


I don't remember it that way.  The Master was shorter (which probably eliminated any weight savings and made for better handling) and had a steeper head angle and pretty much no one that specialized in flat rode one. 

Lot's of people used Sports who did both though (like Wilkerson).  The Sport was a better flatland bike than the Master was a ramp bike, IMO.

I didn't want to be the one to say that ...... I DON"T ever remember seeing that ,let alone hearing that. The Sport was the RAMP bike with S L O W E R  geometry as I remember it.
