Chuong's Motorbike Adventure in Hanoi is a safe bet and a favourite among foreigners. They are cheap too. I bought a Minsk with a buy-back guarantee (I think I paid approx. US$ 500). The Minsk is a good choice because it can be repaired everywhere while the more modern bikes can't. Chuong borrowed me a tool kit and spare parts, and I drove the green little Russian rocket with no problems whatsoever from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh where Chuong's brother showed up at my guesthouse, paid me back almost the full amount, and that's that. Great service. If the desire is to drive the other way then Chuong can send the bikes to his brother in HCMC, then you drive them back to Hanoi. Three weeks are fine.
Just a tip: Bring your own helmet.
