**FINDING QUAMEN GROUND**

Been wanting to start this one for a while. I’ll be filling in these first few posts with some Quamen history and a timeline including a rundown of some of their products. But for now lets get this going with some posts your Quamen and Camacura builds, gear and info!

Re: **FINDING QUAMEN GROUND**

Re: **FINDING QUAMEN GROUND**

Thanx for starting this thread, like my London bikes collection I also have a ton of Quamen/CamAcura stuff... bars, stem, etc....

This is my Martti Kuoppa build, I tried to build this to look like the bike he rode in the inTRIKat "Connect" video... still looking for  a few parts to make it correct to the video.

Still need to find time to install the back brakes.

Graveyard T.I. bars, Quamen seat clamp, Quamen bar ends, CamAcura wheels, CamAcura stem,

This is one bike I truly miss, unfortunately it was lost in the fires here in Santa Rosa, Ca this past October...

Quamen Eric Hough "Cool" frame, they used some kind of cold welding process to make this a strong light frame. Quamen Macross stem 51mm.

My 2001 Bowls from back in the day. Have to get a recent pic of my G3http://uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/36734/dsc002135ae0722f6a.jpg


I like to wear sneakers on my hands because it's much better when you crash - and if you're wearing sneakers on your hands, you're gonna crash.
