Its been an amazing adventure and riding through Vietnam by motorbike makes regular travelling on bus and train etc pale in comparison.

Good Minsk for sale - Hanoi

Posted by Sarah23 on 2/4/2010 at 14:46

I will be arriving in Hanoi on the 7th of April with my Minsk and am looking to sell. It's been a really good bike, and apart from a puncture and small spark plug issue, haven't had any real problems with it. The front wheel, brakes and forks have been replaced with new Honda front forks and a disk brake which greatly improves the stopping power and overall quality of the ride. Asking price is $350 but this is negotiable. Shoot me an email at minskinhanoi@hotmail.co.uk if you're interested or ...
