    Dear Tafel (Witek?)

    I have just driven from Hanoi to Danang with a friend. Since he is flying home on Sunday (06Dec) we are selling his bike now. It's an old (legendary ;-d) Soviet Minsk (95) and we had no problems at all making it down here, the engine works properly. There are a couple of rubber straps and a luggage holder that come with it, which allow you to fasten your bags to the bike.

    The MINSK is now in the Danang/Hoi An region and since we are selling it in the next couple of days. please send me an E-Mail as fast as possible if interested. I could stay here with the MINSK until DEC12 or DEC13, before I will have to continue my journey to Saigon on my bike.

    The price is around 250USD.
    My Email contact:

    Best regards from Danang
