Shogun Catalogs?

Trying to find out a little more information about this now defunct Japanese brand. If anyone has any old catalogs they could post or have seen them posted somewhere on the web I would very much like to see them. I would also be interested in seeing any old articles written about the brand or particluar road models.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Shogun bicycles still exist in Australia but don't know what connection they now have with the Japanese firm. Australian Shoguns in the 80s were basically identical to those sold in North America (e.g. 600-equipped lo-pro Kaze) but production moved to Taiwan (Merida) quite a few years ago. http://www.bicorp.com.au/productbrow...x?category=PGS

I would be very interested in any literature as well. I especially loved the line of bikes with the triple triangle design like the old GT's. I have what I suspect is a Shogun Samarai, Katana or Ninja re-branded as a Nashbar Road Alpha 5000. I have seen a few Shoguns pop up on Craigslist that looked identical to my bike including a "funny bike" TT machine. I also love their old headbadges and the red and black color schemes.......One of these days I'll find one. It's on the list!
