My friend Chris and I have been riding our two Russian Minsks up from Saigon since May, and we are planning to arrive in Hanoi on the 7th of July. We've had a fantastic trip but we're now bound for China, so we need to sell them to some other travellers venturing south. We don't have phones, but you can email Chris at firstname.lastname@example.org or Mitch at email@example.com.
We plan to get the bikes serviced by a proper Minsk mechanic in Hanoi (virtually impossible to find decent mechanics further south), so the bikes should be up for sale around the 9th or the 10th.
A note on helmets - full-face motocross helmets are non-existent in Vietnam, we got ours in Cambodia. I'm throwing mine in with the price of the bike, Chris wants an extra $30 for his.
Chris' Minsk - $450 US
