    A modern 31mm to older type 26mm just isn't going to work good. If you have a modern threadless stem likely 1 1/8th most likely you do you can just change the stem you can pic a nice used one up with...

    I have found one of the best setups for friction shifting is a nice vintage Suntour or Malliard Ultra spaced 6 speed freewheel with a modern sram 8 speed chain can be somewhat pricey $80-100 for...

    Yes you can usually spread a 126mm frame fine to fit a 130mm wheel. To get fairly good chain line with a five speed without a tone of work take 2mm of spacing off the right side and add 2mm to the...

    The Shogun is pretty low end for the price but OK for SF for a vintage road bike with alloy components and wheels in good shape. Will likely need a full servicing and tires about $100 so not a great...

    Dang that is big 26inches was the extra large option size for these. Know you just need to find someone right around 6'4" with out much give or take size wise to ride it.

    Looks like the bike should take 22" 490 BCD 35 or so width tires. You should be able to order these tires from a bike shop or online as others have said. Both Michelin and Sunlite offer fairly nice...

    +1 correct sizing is one of not the most important factor when when buying a basic used bike. A lot of noobs make the mistake of buying a bike that's the wrong size because it's a bargain thinking...

    The price seems a little high based on the mixed components. With the realy nice but lesser known frame I would say $450-500.
