Shogun 2000

Just finished this upright handlebar modification of an old Shogun 2000. Had to snap a few pictures while the sun was out. (I need to lower stem and seatpost). Have no idea of what year it is. I'm guessing maybe 1980.

It was manufactured in 1985, so it could be a 1985 or 1986 model.

It has a Tange 2 frame & originally weighed 24 pounds on my luggage scale. It's much heavier now since I installed thorn proof tubes, Schwalbe Marathon tires, new stem, handlebars, shifters &, levers. The Marathon tires had to be pumped up to the maximum 95psi rating before it would roll fast. I'm thinking about slapping a chainstay/seatstay mounted kickstand on it. Fenders would be nice too but, I don't know if they'll fit on there with those big Schwalbe tires.

I'm guessing the Shogun 2000 surpasses the Miyata 1000 by an even 1,000.

amirite?

Well, the number 2000 is 2X1000. So, it's got that going for it. The big surprise with this one was the wheels. It has Suzue hubs with sealed cartridge bearings. (Not loose ball cup & cone). First 80's something bike w/27" wheels I ever seen with solid bearings. The back wheel has something like 40 spokes on it. So, it's built like a battleship.

Here's what it looked like when I brought it home a few years ago (before I butchered it with upright bars).

All dialed in for a 6'-1" 215lb rider. Will be advertised for sale soon. That's it. That's all. Done deal.

How much do you want for it with the original bars and shifters? I need to replace mine that just cracked from rust. I would buy just the frame too. Awesome heavy touring bike. Can't do the hybrid bars though.

Sorry, that bike has been gone for about a year now. I forget what I sold it for. But, it went for way way way ,,,, way, way, way,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,- WAY LESS -


than what it was worth. I really can't believe all the work I put into these old steel bikes. Just to break even on the parts. But WTF. I'm retired. I'm on easy street. It's all good. The bike has a new home where it's loved. That's it. That's all. Done deal. Be good. Have fun.
