Default Hello From Thailand

Hey Guys, Well, my name is Jon, I travel with my job more then a human is designed to do, LOL. I have a home in Maui HI, Korat Thailand and Dallas texas.

Most of my seat time on Bikes has been extreme distances, such as Buenos Aires Argentina to key West Florida....its a hobby and get away for me.

I recently built a home in Thailand north of Bangkok and picked up the THAI verison of a Honda Shadow.

Thai Government wanted about 32-34,000$ USD for me to drive a BMW R1200GSA there, I love my beemers, I dont love them that much

I picked up what they call in Thailand a 2002 Honda Shadow, 400cc, American Classic Black label Edition, with about 4,000 miles on it...looks and rides great....

Now that said, can any of you take a look at the picture of the bike and tell me what model this may be outside Thailand so I know how to reference it for parts, i.e. Back rest, windscreen, crash bars etc etc...

Looks a bit like maybe a Honda Shadow VLX 600?

Thanks in advance...

The Asian market version of the vlx 600 is the Honda Steed which is a 400cc bike. Identical to the vlx except for the engine. The tires/fenders on your pictured bike resemble one of the 750cc models,,maybe an ACE 750.

I'm sure someone more knowledgeable will chime in. See my vlx in my sig.
2006 vlx

Thanks Much, so It's looking like it may be called a 750 ACE? , except after inflation from 2002 until 2012, its down to 400CC LOL!

Looks a lot like my 750 Ace. I'd search for those parts.

Wow, thats a beautiful 750 ACE....any idea where to get the hardshell cases like you have in picture? I am used to hardshell aluminum cases on my other bikes and prefer durability over leather bags...Thanks again for info
