Over the years I’ve had the opportunity to hob knob with many celebrities and or musicians & I can honestly say the only time I was purely star struck was when I met Bob Haro.
Today I’m happy to call Bob a friend. Here’s a bit of my childhood inspiration.
“Shown here is my original hand made BMX number plate – hand-cut from a 4×8 sheet of LDPE plastic most likely in my parents living room while watching the 6 Million Dollar Man. Back then each plate was hand-cut, drilled, riveted, decaled then heated over mom’s stove then bent to a handle bar jig. Can you say “low tech”? Note they were called Factory Plates NOT Haro back then – this was the true original BMX plate. If you find one on Ebay snag-it – I’m sure it’s worth some loot to some OS BMXer!“
