Mechanic in Vietnam

I was in Vietnam a few years ago and met a mechanic who works on big bikes (which are rare there). He also runs tours.

Mr. Pham Van Binh
89A Ham Nghi St.
District 1, Ho Chi Minh City
Phone: 8393125

Mr. Binh does not speak much English, but he knows people who do. (Note: This info is almost 5 years old.)

hi chris,

sorry, but I forgot to tell you. I could not find this mechanic in february 2001, somebody told me that he is not working anymore and the address is not a mc work shop, it is a travel agency. anyway, i was just looking for a place to change my oil, so i went to a Yamaha dealer and after i promised to buy some oil from him i could use the workshop for an hour for free.
