There are a few dealers in Bangkok and 1 I think in Pattaya. It's 500,000B new but you might get lucky on one a few years old for your budget. Here's a link for a dealer in Bangkok and it would be the same price everywhere.

so why is the license plate not attached to the bike?

get a vulcan or a honda ctx700n from honda bigwing, http://www.hondabigbike.com/product.html?product=CTX700N

350 k thb for manual and 400 k thb for dual clutch auto tranny, new and fully legal and a good value bike. easy on petrol, no need for repairs etc. overall, a hassle free option.

hi,

just had an email from farang guy selling the steed, there is no green book with this bike, he says a green book will cost me 70-000 thb . maybe i should forget about the steed ? i am in no way questioning his honesty but i want to be safe, seems like its going to be a bit of a minefield out there buying a chopper.

i still love that intruder though !!!!!!!!!!

No green book, stay away, don't buy it. It is not worth the hassle. There are so many second hand Steeds out there with green books.

BTW. I think we are into the same kind of bikes, and as much as i love the Intruder it not a bike i would tour Thailand on. A Sunday bike only.biggrin.png

OK, So first it might be a good idea to listen to the advice given out on here by guys that have years of biking history in their own countries and especially Thailand. 400 steed is as flat as fart and I would not even bother thinking about it especially touring two up with baggage. I had a 1400 back in the mid 1990's which is probably a similar year as the one you are dreaming abou except it was two years old at the time with full dealer backup! Bike was OK, nothing more and had some issues. Top speed was unremarkable and handling was <deleted>, Carbs had a history of being set wrong at the factory and it was all put together to look pretty rather than do any particular thing well it is what it is! Engines were also an air cooled effort with an oil cooler fitted as it runs to hot. Not the best for Thailand temps me thinks.

Bike history none! Thailand may not be the best place to begin making bike history but that said most of us that have history continue to do it here. Why do you want to start riding now and why do these old crates appeal so much?

If there is no green book I wouldn't touch it with a 10 foot pole.

You will never get it legal despite what the seller tells you.

If you really want it then tell him you will pay the price when HE gets a green book and you will pay him at the Land Transport Department AFTER it gets transferred into your name.

He will be more than happy to take your money if you pay for the green book. To get a pass on the emission tests which I believe is only done in Bangkok the bike will HAVE to pass the 2012 (I think) California standard. It will take a few weeks and will cost up to 100,000 baht wth NO refund if it fails.

Any bike without a green book just pass over it. If you buy it and you want to sell it on later the green book problem will be yours.

UPDATE .......the pics of green book have been attatched here please have a look. thai owner, he makes these bikes. please let me know your thoughts. and surely i can do a bit of travelling on these bikes ? i mean say from pattaya to hau hin twice per week 3 times a year ,maybe ?

what do you think. it is a beauty and i think if this green book is genuine etc then how could i not sell on again in a couple of years if i do not get my use out of it .

thanks
