Please see addition to my current riders, a 1987 Shogun Selectra.

Teal (steel) is real and a dumpster bike. Yea someone was trashing it. One manŐs trash is another manŐs treasure. I scooped it up. Cleaned and polished the years of dirt and grease off it. My wife said ŇNo not another freaking bikeÓ, but she was truly amazed when I finished and took it for my first ride.

Performed minor replacements:
New tubes, Panaracer Pascela Tour Guard 700x25C tires, Sram PC8 chain, Generic cables, Housings and Bar tape.

Installed some used parts:
Forma SL bar, Shimano brake levers and PD6610 SL clip-less pedals. 58 - Lugged Tange Infinity Chromoly Frame and Lugged Tangalloy Fork

Original and current components:
Shimano: SIS M5 Indexing down tube shifters, SLR 49-53 BR-L490 Brakes (front and back), FD Z 204 LA Front derailleur, RD L 525 LA Rear derailleur and 6 speed cassette 13/15/17/20/23/26t Sugino: 172.5 - VP130 Crank set with 42t x 52t Chain rings SR: Sakai seat post and 130 stem Wheels: Suzue 7A Hubs, 32 spoke x 24 x 700C Araya clincher rims Kashimax Intama Saddle

Original drive components post cleaning and adjusting ran silky smooth, hubs races and hoops were in great shape and brakes stop better than they should. I doubt bike was ridden more than 1,000 miles. Found ride to be compliant, predictable, smooth and stretched out. Great ride for a low end or starter bike in its time. I will put bicycle to good use and already have ridden it 300 miles+ since 10/11 pick-up.
