Haro Bikes

In 1976 a SoCal kid with an eye for style and a steady hand with an X-acto knife supported his BMX addiction by making custom number plates for the sport's top racers. The Haro number plate was an instant hit, and went on to become an icon of the sport. Demand for Haro plates was phenomenal, and soon a business was born.

When he wasn't designing products for his fast-growing company, Bob killed time by learning tricks on his BMX bike. Freestyle didn't have a name yet, but it had a founding father. After perfecting his repertoire, Bob took his trick show on the road and a whole new sport was born.  Haro's move into BMX racing created a line of bikes associated with several ABA National amateur and Pro titles.
