Please don't use Photobucket. It's broken and it's malware.


So what can i use? No googledrive, onedrive, imgur or photobucket. Photobucket was one that was used before in other pages. can someone give me something?

Although it usually takes me two or three goes to embed any photos successfully, but that is just down to my lack of computing knowledge. (took me two goes to embed the web address too)

We have no idea how old it is only that it was bought in the late 70's. I think it was made between '76 and '79. My dad used it for 5 years and it was stored away for 18 years. Any info on what I have would be helpful. I was never planning to sell it or junk but maybe i will repair it for my future children or something.

Hello Gregory B.,

looked at the pictures of your Shogun. Thanks to Bunged Knee for putting those up.

Looking at the headbadge you are correct about the date range for the bicycle.

The frame number stamped into the BB shell can be used to determine the year the frame was manufactured.

I don't know the model but I do know that the model 300 had ST tubes.

The model number decal was usually in the middle of the top tube.

My first Shogun.
Was given this frame to restore, so I did. Managed to save the downtube decals but the toptube decals were too bad to save.
Now fitted with 600 Arabesque groupset. Japanese Sakae hubs and rims, japanese nitto bars. Seat and post are non japanese.

92 spectra version I believe ?

Ha, well spotted, cant even blame auto correct for that one. But yes Selectra was the decals on the top tube. Would love to replace them but is unlikely.
