yeah the frame's fine thanks, dv.
it'll hang up in the shed for a while i think. fork is a bit steeper than i'd hoped, but that's ok - it's a lovely frameset.
for the weight, and because i don't know much about columbus tubes, i think it's reynolds 653 or 531p

I'll take a stab at Japanese manufacture SR, Sakae/Ringyo? I know they made aluminum frames and forks, so I guess a lug casting business is not out of the question.

I don't see why not. Plenty of Aussie built frames using TANGE tubing and lugs. I would imagine that Japanese sourced lugs would have been a lot cheaper than the Euro stuff at the time.

so i've bought a dawes galaxy. reynolds 531 off-the-rack touring bike from England.
been looking for one for ages, but they're either not my size, or not affordable.

bought another raleigh. a team ti, again with reynolds 531. not an actual team bike coz they were all 753.
just my size, and it's one of those icons you just can't pass up!

seriously looking to cull a few frames, so hit me up if there's something you want.

looking to unload the following frames:
a shogun samurai
the lemond
the blue superlite
a raceline peleton
the vertex roady
the kenevans track frame

will post ads up next week (just in time for christmas), once i get them all out for photos, with complete descriptions and prices etc.
take my advice - i don't need it!

I think you would regret selling the Vertex. When I think off you Munga I associate it with Repco's.

hmm, why you make sense!

i think you may be right. i just looked at erle's vicenza again on another forum, and said to myself "if that was smaller i'd buy it".

kinda says something, yeah?

So where are you now Munga? Is the frame count slowly contracting towards a single figure?

Definitely looks like an SR stamp. My Dawes has French Bocama lugs so it wouldn't be too much of a stretch for them to use japanese lugs.

i looked at a few SR logo's and can't find a match, or a reference to their lugs.

Hi all new to this forum so please bear with me.

I have an 80's shogun samurai in original pink white and blue. I saved for a year as a teenager to buy this bike. I think in the 80's I paid almost $1000 new for it....I love this bike and it always gets questions/ turns heads when I ride it. Condition is very good with all original 105 bio pace components. My question is....is it collectable? Is it worth much?

Ill attach a pic if I can work out how!!!

Nick

Mate, check eBay for completed listings. My guess is $50 to $300 for a mint condition bike.
I picked up my samurai for under $100 with same components

is that blue one a `repco Superlight` I have an 80`s repco frame that I reversed the drop out`s for track. everyone was interested!!!! . Very tight geometry and a very rigid sprinter. I had to reverse the drop outs as the `SOOKS` did`nt like getting towel`d up by a streeter.

If you keep going like that before too long you'll only have one bike for every day of the week :shock:
