Mid-late 80's Shogun easy street
Mid-late 80's Shogun easy street mountain bike cruiser we refurbished here at Bike Boom. If your'e not familiar, Bike Boom is a used bike shop in Davis square, on the border of Cambridge and Somerville , near Boston MA. where we specialize in restoring and refurbishing used and vintage bikes and offer professional bicycle repair
The Shogun Easy street is probably 1986 or 1987 with an indexed simano shifting system. Pretty rare bike as most shoguns were road bikes and pretty popular in the east coast.
Lacking a triple crank and a granny gear the shogun easy street is not a real mountain bike. Its more of a city bike, do it all machine. A lot of folks wanted to have the mountain bike look but mainly used it in the street and light trails. the shogun easy street drive train looks as if it was taken directly from one of their 10 speed (or 12) road bikes especialy the steel Custom crank
Just like any other large mountain bike , this was snatched in about a day. the bike has received Brand new shifter cables and housing and a rear tire apart from a complete tune up. the front was a really nice continental town and country.
