One more Harv Cameron creation. I’ve heard that it can be used for combustible cannabinoids...?

Re:

Let's get on the phone Neo. Would be good to catch up with you. Seem to recall dragging you off to some party with complete strangers the last time that we met and that was not at all recent. You were working the room.
Angular J diamond likely has my number and other contact

Here's another ...

I am not 100% sure on the year. Somewhere between 1988-1992 lol. I am going to put a full XT 732/5 group on it and enjoy.




Serial number ... someone rode the hell outta it!

Re: Harvey C



Thanks for adding this. Hopefully this build draws out a few more of the Toronto riders from the 80s and 90s to reminisce.

John has one of Harvey's odd ball full suspension road frames. I was told a lot went to Tony Beeks. Beeks and Cameron were close. I know one of Cameron's jigs ended up at Mariposa where it still is, but I am pretty sure there were 3-4 made and I have no idea what happened to Harvey's actual jig.
The "jig" that's at Mariposa is actually the old frame alignment table from Cycle Logic. I had learned to use one when I worked for Tony Beek in the summer of '90. I bought it off John when myself and a friend started Ripe Pipe bikes in '91. When I finished building frames in '00 or so I just left it at Bicycle Specialties and eventually Mike Sr. traded me a unique Mariposa for it and a bunch of my other building crap...K

Being new to this particular forum, should I create a separate thread for this bike or just add info here as it seems to have morphed into an all things Cameron thread? K

Rare Toronto built bike
Has new tires, tubes, grips, saddle.
There's not much around about these bikes Harv Cameron built the bikes in his East End Toronto shop around 1987-88 $2250 It's a great ride. His frames sold, back then, for around $2800
There's quite a few pages of info here: https://www.retrobike.co.uk/threads/1987-cameron-rebuild-wiki-a-wee-face-lift.321401/


Just learned about this brand reading this thread. If anyone is interested this ad is what led me here. Not my bike but maybe this helps fill someone's wish list.

Just found this thread while searching for information on my Camerons for my son. I have a beautiful forest green hardtail and a rear suspension cameron that I still ride, circa 1992-93 ish. Good times!! The green bike is my favourite and the one my son uses now. Super crazy light. I first bought a Stumpjumper from Cyclelogic, then graduated to the super light Cameron. It was my pride and joy!!! My only regret is John swapped out the original forks for switch blades. Even back then I knew it felt wrong!! I was having trouble with my back so I then went into debt with the rear suspension Cameron. I love them, they are like works of art to me. I remember that Mountain Bike Magazine article!! I had a copy too, but long gone. So great thanks for this bit of history so my son doesn't think I make all this stuff up :) Your bike looks real nice. I need details on the decals!
