Had. Sold the Shogun to a friend in need a fortnight ago. Sold the Superlite a long time ago. Have a new frame coming in the next couple of weeks. Another Shogun, this time a triple triangle Samurai in poor shape. Will most likely run 9sp Campag again.

Made by Centurion
Build completed today with pics to follow after work tomorrow. It has come up a treat, with a 600 group (STIs from Waz) that works flawlessly, it will be difficult to hand it over to an eager recipient.
Shogun Samarai (frame from Munga)
Shimano 600 (STIs from Wazza)
New owner thrilled with it, as was i for the limited time i had to test ride it.
Hand over was today, with a mini Riverloop as the maiden ride.
Looks a treat in the flesh with the black parts against the frame colour, and the 600 gear operates flawlessly.
(some cable trimming to come yet)
Hubba hubba. Hope the new custodian enjoys it as much as I did.
It really is a lovely bike to ride.
too many bikes. there. i said it. it is possible to have too many bikes. i'm going to whittle down to less than five.
i don't expect anyone to agree. it's a tough line to walk.
Has anybody out there got an early 1990s Prairie Breaker with intact decals? Specifically looking at 1990-1993.
I want to repaint mine and have new decals drawn up and would like to do them in the '91-93 style so I'm looking for images of the top tube, downtube, headtube and seat tube decals on Japanese made Praire Breaker frames.
Newer than the triple triangle bikes and older than the Taiwanese ones please.
As an example of one decal scheme (I think this is '91 or 92 and they followed this design with some different color schemes);
And source for this one says it is a 1990:
I need closeups and dimensions so my printer can create a set for my bike.
I've recently bought the same model but in the green/white scheme but it's still located in NSW and I'm in Vic; a good friend will be transporting it to me soon but from memory the stickers were in good shape. I have some pics of it I can post up when I get a chance.
