Thanks for making these Bob, very pleased with the quality. Colors are vibrant, graphics are sharp, plate has perfect symmetry. Beautiful job on these. I got #68 today, '68 is my birth year so that was a cool coincidence. I have already referred some buddies. I will spread the word. Thanks for your great communication as well.
New OG and bad.ass!

I'm a bit of a Haro fanboy. I was happy to order a Factory Plate and happier to open the box and see my plate. It is the perfect addition to my 24" PK Ripper and kids and Oldies like me always mention the plate first. Even better, to this fanboy, Bob and his crew assembled these kits and burnished the sticker to the plate. That's pretty sweet for an OG racer-kid like me. And if you're not a racer or former, so what. Buy this plate. It's radAF.
THIS IS SPECIAL

We jumped at the chance to snag this limited-edition ‘Factory Plates 40th Anniversary Package’. Bob’s entrepreneurial career of illustration, graphic design and industrial design for the BMX and powersports industry has been an inspiration to us for decades. He has successfully merged his passion with his career and continues to do so. This Factory Plate will be displayed on our shop walls as an homage to the grandfather of BMX freestyle and as a reminder to pursue what we love to do while working hard along the way.
We dig the killer packaging and appreciate the attention to detail in the entire collection. Excited to own one of these limited-run sets. Thanks, Bob!

Literally Blown Away!!!!

From my first contact with Bob, I literally felt like I was an actual team member. Because I'm a local, I opted not to have my order shipped to me, instead I chose to pick up directly from the warehouse. To my surprise, I was greeted by The Godfather of freestyle himself, Bob Haro. I was graciously invited to tour the research and development department, the entire time trying to maintain my composure. The first thing I laid my eyes on was Bob's personal Haro Master from the 80's, it's what created the hole freestyle BMX Movement. Then we ended up in the Master's design office which was filled with everything from the past to the present and even future concepts. The whole time, wanting to pinch myself because it felt like I was dreaming. The craftsmanship and thought process behind every product produced from Haro is amazing, always American made and built to last. And always with the riders' needs in mind. One great memory is from over a year ago when I was chatting it up with Bob and being shown the prototypes of the legendary Haro number plates. As I opened up the double boxed 1 of 240 limited edition number plate, I thought to myself how lucky I am to be one of the very few to own a masterpiece number plate. These things are badass! From the gift box, to the creative art work on the exterior, to the tilted hinged box, to the display of the jewel of a number plate inside, they are truly unreal! The vibrant colors and design are off the chain! Even the choice of rivets for mounting this number plate are 100% American quality. Once again you have outdone yourself and I am completely blown away by the outcome of these gorgeous BADASS number plates. #1

I have been a Haro dealer since the very beginning and as soon as I saw Bob was reissuing the original plates I could not get my CC out of my wallet fast enough. Super high quality plus the extra schwag make it even better. Thanks for always making quality product.
Second chance to own history!

Better get on board with this. If you are like me and gave away your old plates or got mobbed at the Nationals. This kit will solve all that. Great product and make sure you save this one!
First Class, As Expected! I knew the plates were going to be over the top COOL! DG

First class quality and still the best style in the industry! Haro will never be replaced and the plates are "ICONIC" to say the least! Great job Bob and we are all stoked you did this project! FIRST CLASS!
