I was indulging at my favourite coffee shop this morning and an elderly Thai gentleman arrived on this
Steed, he said it was a 30 year old 450cc and has been trouble-free.

.... although my brief research suggests Honda made a 400cc Steed not 450cc.
Any experts out there?

Hmm, a bit strange.
He definitely said it was 'see roi hah sip cc'.
In fact he went on to explain that each cylinder was 'saung roi yee sip hah cc' !
Oh well, maybe we'll meet again for further discussions about his bike.
Thanks guys.

A lot of older bikes had the cc stamped on the bottom of the cylinders, take a good look at that area Ron
