ACTIVELY SEEKING AGENTS / SALES OUTLETS WORLDWIDE.
« on: Jul 24, 2015, 06:20:27 »
We have now consolidated quite a growing list of products under the RAM banner. 8)

Apart from the RAMSHOX, which we can now supply for most applications - there is also an ever expanding range of predominantly BMW [ Kay and Oilhead ] parts.

Yes I know, not obvious DTT material - but then , WE'RE building them !!!

Boxercup and R1100S / 1200S models catered [ plus others ] for - GRP parts, Adjustable rear strut [ handling improvement ], Hi-Po plug leads. telelever mods .................. and of course RAMSHOX.

We're not looking for someone to hold stocks, but an enthusiastic outfit willing to put the RAM name out there - the financial gains will follow.

We have sold over 200 shox to the US alone, with a further 150 to Australia.

I emailed these guys a while back and was never able to get any product information. Not sure where they got to, but their English was questionable for Brits.

You mean you tried reaching Beachcomber (TJ)?  I have a set of RAM shocks on my XS650 and can tell you they're great shocks.

Anyhow - I'm sure TJ is able to be contacted, and you can read some of his Tales from the Day he's been kind enough to share with us for the last 5 years:

http://www.dotheton.com/forum/index.php?topic=20108
"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

Beachcomber responded to one of my PM's here. We then conversed via email. I asked for price and spec sheets, we had a few more emails back and forth, then I never heard back. I never got the price or spec sheets either.

Not sure when that was but TJ lost his pc and all his contacts to a crash and may have lost yours.  Give him another shout.

I'm going to assume that you are the Chris Livengood I mailed after an enquiry. For the avoidance of future doubt and because apparantly my English is below par, I attach VERBATIM, the last mail I sent you.

IF YOU ARE SERIOUS ABOUT REPRESENTATION - YOU HAVE BOTH MY PRIVATE AND FORUM MAILING ADDRESSES.

Please note especially the last line on the post ..... after which I had no more contact from you.


Hi Chris,

With your insight / rebuilding / spec'ing etc you are an ideal guy to represent RAM

First let me give you a backgrounder.

The shox / bike side of the business has grown [ past 9 years ] all on it's own due to pressure from our car customers who have seen our own bikes in the workshops over the past 20 years or so.

RAMSHOX are important [ we ARE businessmen ] however it's very laid back and informal.

We have NO requirement for a solus representation - you have your current range + specials and rebuilding we have no interest in interfering with that successful business model and see RAMSHOX complimenting your current work.

Secondly, although I am responsible for the initial venture into bike shox - I have no commercial interest in Realm Engineering or RAMSHOX. The owner [ Adrian Cocking ] is a lifelong friend of some 40 years and since I retired and sold up my own replica car business [ Cobras, Jags, Porsche ] in 2000, I simply help my old pal out with consultancy design and looking after his marketing side.

Two years ago we developed our Classic Twinshock range, specifically for the needs of retro special builders and owners of classics. The range now covers post war classics [ BSA, Norton, Triumph, etc] right through to the Japanese and Italian Classics and modern retro factory bikes [ Guzzi, Triumph, Norton ............ ] In other words - you have an application - we have a shock !

Additionally we have a Competition version featuring Heim style rod end mountings [ where applicable ]. We have supplied shox to Ben Kingham who has been successful for the past 4 seasons winning the B.E.A.R.S. series outright twice [ on target for a 3rd ] with his almost stock BMW K100.

I will speak with AC this weekend and finalise our dealer pricing and  let you have it asap.

The shox are serious quality - being based on car shox they are very strong, but with the aircraft alloy components - light. Here in the UK and EU we compete directly against Wilbers - who are 20% more expensive retail.

Shock supply is in the main off the shelf, or at worst [ for a special ] - 7 days turnaround.

Over to you.............
TJ

Bonjour Peter,

Yes very interested - I believe that the French / Italian / Belgian / Dutch markets are prime targets for specialised shox.

I used to take the French "Cafe Racer" mags until last year. The bikes featured in the pages are just right for a service like ours. 

I will phone you over the weekend to discuss - when's a good time ?

Just a ketchup here ............ peeps who know me - know that I AM the original computer dummy and for that reason our websites [ www.realmengineering.com. and www.ramshox.com. ] are both out of date and outdated.

However we realise that a good website is the best tool for promoting our products and to that end AC has secured the services of professional web building peeps to completely revamp, modernise and bring the contents up to date. Both sites will be going live [ hopefully ] in the next 3-4 weeks.

That means not only the RAMSHOX range - which covers virtually ALL classic and Monoshock bikes - but now also includes the RAM -MOTO  "Scream" range of BMW R1100S based Cafe Racers and all the associated accessories.

Any potential agent would be validated to represent these products as well.

Thanks, TJ. No offense was intended. Did you finalize the dealer pricing?
