My old tourer reborn again

Hi,
Here's a pic of my old faithful Shogun touring bike back on the road across Tassie after another lease on life. Some of the components are still original which still ceases to amaze me. I wont bore you with the specs but you are more than welcome to ask.

Built for touring indeed! It looks like a great tourer. Why go with new bike when you have an old friend like this waiting to go touring with you.

If you have the time, I would be curious to know the size and a little geometry like TT and CS lengths. The seat tube angle is built for a Brooks, eh?

Great looking bike. I think it would look better if it had some Peruvian dust on it....or maybe some mud from the Dempster.
It's time to quit your day job and head out.
Seriously, it looks like a solid "go anywhere" machine.

You did a nice job on the bike!

I'll bet you only have about 40lbs of gear, unless you are hauling rocks
