see addition to my current riders, a 1987 Shogun Selectra.
(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.
New tubes, Panaracer Pascela Tour Guard 700x25C tires, Sram PC8
chain, Generic cables, Housings and Bar tape.
some used parts:
Forma SL bar, Shimano brake levers and PD6610 SL clip-less pedals.

(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

and 130 stem Wheels: Suzue 7A Hubs, 32 spoke x 24 x 700C Araya clincher

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.
