Bought a frame recently .
Original owner thought it may be a Shogun ?
HAs had a bit of a life . Painted over etc .
Anyhoo it has a serial number on the bottom of the seat tube ....
Also seems reasonable quality ?
has those slightly annoying Shimano lever bosses .
I have the same on my Koga Miyata Roadwinner
26.8mm seat post
126mm OLN rear
No top tube cable guides ( maybe removed ? )
Had forks with it that I dont believe are correct as they had no eyelets but rear do ?
Pics attached .
Any help with possible identity gratefully accepted .

Cheers
Based on the serial number's format, its location and the frame characteristics, my leading candidate would be 1985 manufacture by Pacific Cycles of Taiwan. In North America, they are known primarily as a contract manufacturer for brands such as Lotus, Mikado, Nashbar and Supergo. They also have an eponymous brand, though I don't know if it extends as far back as 1985. Unfortunately, I don't have any appreciation for what brands they may have been marketed under in New Zealand.
