inspired me to finally take a few pictures of my current classics.
first that I am sending is my 1986 Shogun 300. My parents bought
this for me when I was in eight grade and it has seen many miles
since. It has tremendous sentimental value as well as being a great
frame is 58 cm and is made from Tange 900 Double Butted Tubing.
It has two eyelets in the rear and one set in the front. It also
has plenty of room for fenders. It would, I believe, have been considered
a Sports Tourer in its day.
bike originally came with, what I assume to be, entry level Shimano
brakes, derailleurs and friction thumb shifters. In the early to
mid 1990s I had the bike overhauled at which time downtube Shimano
Light Action SIS Shifters, a Shimano RSX Rear Derailleur, Shimano
105 Break Handles and a new rear wheel were added. I am still using
the original crank, front derailleur and brakes.
have used this bike for commuting, light touring and fast rides
for many years and it has never failed me. I look forward to many
more rides in the future.
