Haro has been a recognized name in the BMX world since 1977 when they first began making number plates and accessories. In fact, Bob Haro started making number plates free of charge for BMX racers initially. These plates became so popular that he had to start charging for them. And his number plate sales soon led to Haro mouth guards and visors paving the way for an important product niche in the BMX community. This specialty company would soon be known as Haro Designs.
