Nice looking Shogun. Extra thumbs up for the Biopace

Which parts in particular are you looking to replace ? It is hard to see what is rusty on your pic.

Almost all pedals have 9/16" x 20 tpi threads - the main exceptions are one piece cranks, French and early 80s dura ace. As you have early Shimano 105, they will be 9/16".

Nice bike.

In terms of parts, you'll need an 8-speed chain, assuming it to have 6-8 speeds. I don't know about Chain Reaction, but Torpedo 7 have them from time to time. Brake and gear cables are standard Shimano. I believe standard road brake shoes will be fine. A new cluster could be tricky. It depends on whether the existing one is a cassette or a freewheel. Seat and seatpost should be no drama.

Some of the other stuff could be tricky. As find_bruce said, it depends on what you want to replace.

Good luck, looks like a fun project.
