On another thread Litnin says:

The VLX is also known as the Steed in other parts of the world.
While the Steed is available in 400cc and 600cc configurations,
the accessories for equivalent years will be the same.
The only difference is the Steed is a 5 speed trans where most of the
Shadow VLX's are 4-speeds.
The Steed is a VLX and a VLS. The VLS is a springer front end.
Could someone explain a springer front end?

Pros or cons?

Any other input on a 400 steed?

Thanks!

A retro looking front end such as the one used on Harley Davidsons in the 30's. They handle worse than telescopic forks but look better IMO. The Steed is a Japanese model that's not exported to the US. It might be found in other markets...not sure - but definately not here.

i agree with AERO_HEAD, looks easy to convert to a bobber or rat.
