Pre 1989 Bike for SE Asia Travel
little bit of a tricky question here... I'm planning to be over in Asia for a while motorcycling through Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and Thailand. However I would love to bring the bike back to Australia with me once I am done.
The question is if I were to limit my choices to only bikes 1989 or older (for Australian importation requirements) is there anything thats worth it, or would they be crappy hunks of junk.
The idea is towards the end of my trip I would find a reasonable mechanic and get the bike a little customised so I could use it in Australia as a run around.
Finally i am not sure how tight the restriction is but traveling through Vietnam I need to make sure that the bike complies with their engine restrictions or there is a common workaround to this issue.
