I wonder if there's enough Shogun owners to get a database going?

You guys and one other I know of on BF make less than 10.

Plus, some of their frames are nearly identical to other makes, right down to the serial numbers, pinstriping, and lugs.

Still, here's mine.

you might be able to tell from the previous reply, but the serial # is stamped on the underside of the bottom bracket.

Top,
Do you know why the 400 and the ChroMo 400 were so different?
My ChroMo 400 had no braze-ons whatsoever. Everything was bolt-on except rear brake cable guides.

No idea.
The 400 I have has rear brake cable guides, front and rear cable guides above the BB shell, RD guide on the chainstay, and bottle braze-ons on the downtube. The shifters are band mounted. Tubing is Tange Champion #2.

Excellent. Mine was just not that caliber, and I guess, destined for life as a hooker.

Here's mine.

I don't know the model. I want to think it's a Shogun 1000?

Serial number: N6B03345

I guess it's a 1986?

I have a Shogun I purchased new in I believe 1981, that I have upraded over the years. It has a sticker at the top of the seat tube Chrome Mollebendum with Double Butted across at a 45 degree angle. I think it is a 600 because the shifters, derailleurs, and brake levers are Shimano 600 arabesque parts. The serial number is M9J20794. Any info would be appreciated.

All I can tell you for sure is that he frame was manufactured in 1979. It may or may not be a 600 model. The model numbers established the relative position in the lineup and did not always correspond to the group. For instance, I have Shogun literature which lists the model 600 as being equipped with Shimano 105. It is even possible that Shogun may have used model names, rather than model numbers in the late 1970s. So far, I have only been able to obtain Shogun literature and/or ads as far back as 1983. BTW, does your bicycle have a Country of Origin decal?

Shogum serial number data base?

T. Mar, 1979 is probably right. I just checked and yes at the base of the seat tube is a nice scrolly JAPAN decal. The shop where I purchased it had their sticker just above it and I never really noticed that the were two separate decals! I have changed the stem to Cinelli, bars are stock Alps road champiuon, headset is an alloy Stronglight Spidel (won't stay tight!), Stronglight seatpost with Selle Italia Flight Titanium seat. When I get it in picture taking condition, I will try to figure out how it is done. I think it is great that so many people have thought enough of these bikes to restore them. I oinly commute approximately 5 miles, but I really appreciate the smooth ride!

shogun 18 sp touring

anybody still here???
well, i'm dying to tell someone about my new baby Shogun! even if i'm just talking to myself
This is THE BEST riding bike I've ever tried- comfortable and retro cool. And I was just a mountain biker until about a month ago when i signed up for the MS 150 charity ride. A week before the big ride I found my 1982 Shogun (on craiglist of course)! Never thought 2 back to back 75mile rides would be as fun as they were -awesome rolling hills of columbia, mo!! so grateful to have the touring gearing so i could sit down on those climbs I'm addicted to the speed of road biking
specs:
serial# M1E33686
1982(the matching-color deore pedals date it=weird 1" interface Dyna-Drive Shimano only made that one year)
Scrolly JAPAN decal right below shop decal (Different Spokes Norwalk, CT)
Shogun dude head on forks and
frame material "2001 Mangaloy double butted" on TT, "18 speed touring" on stays
Shimano 600 hubs, brakes
Deore triple crankset(50/45/30)
Deore 6 sp.cassette(13-30)
Deore der., down tube shifters
Araya rims, SR Laprade seatpost, SR road champion alloy bars, (I replaced weird upright tallllll Cromo road stem with a normal 100mm SR alloy stem)

I've added the new stem, black brake hoods, kenda tires, tubes, brake pads, alloy bottle cage, gel cork tape, Fizik women's gel Vitesse seat (modern comfort!)

eventually i'll figure out the allowed picture size-sorry

oh yeah, does anybody know about the deore dyna drive pedals- the 1" interface doesn't allow for me to get normal 9/16"clipless pedals- bummer- do i have to change out the whole crankset or just the arm or what???? don't want to spoil the whole vintage thing, but cages are really annoying after having worn clipless shoes.

got2run, great looking bike! I am still here and still working on my 1979 Shogun. I will post pics soon, ready or not! These bikes are just flat-out great rides and they take commuting abuse with ease.

I've got an '86 prairie breaker pro.

Currently on loan to my brother in law.

I'll grab the serial # next time I'm over there.
