    It is the sm465 like biggray71 said. Some people will call it a 3-speed some call it a 4-speed. I'm of the 4-speed persuasion

    It's a four speed. Just because your first is low geared dosn't mean it's not a "speed".It has four foward gears hence its a fours speed. There are three speeds with only 3 forward gears....thats a 3 speed.
