Nam is the sweetest guy, don\t waste your time going anywhere else in Tay ho area
Sep 2019
Nam and the crew are all pure professionals. I was in an accident and returned my bike after 4 days which was supposed to be 3. Nam and his crew were so empathetic they didn't charge me for extra day. THE BEST

Excellent shop. Wonderful guy.
Oct 2017 • Solo
There are only a couple of shops that I recommend to friends coming to visit in Hanoi who want to rent/buy a motorcycle or scooter, and this one of them.
As a foreigner living in Hanoi for some years, I have had to learn through trial and error about how to buy a bike. I’ve made some mistakes and learnt from them. One of things that you have to understand is that you will get what you pay for, not at all shops, some times there is simply bad service and you will get a Frankenstein bike that has a new paint job and you paid too much for it. But not at Viet’s shop. Viet is fair and will give you what you pay for, he has been in the business for a while, and he knows bikes, and he knows traveller’s expectations. If you really want to come and spend 300$ on a motorcycle and then travel 1000+ kilometres on it, over bumpy roads and mountains, well then, please, like anywhere in the world, accept the possible consequences that arises when pinching pennies. Viet is a great guy, sit and have a chat with him. He always is helpful and wants to please and provide good service.
I have used his bikes before, and if you spend some time looking and discussing with him, he will give you good truthful answers. Don’t be worried about this shop, despite what some reviews have said. Unfortunate experiences sometimes happen, especially when someone’s dream Vietnam motorcycle trip didn’t work out because they expected to get a perfect machine for less than the price of a cheap cell phone.
To summarise, Viet is a great guy, his shop sells cheap rebuilt bikes, as well as high performing more expensive models. It’s quite simple, pay a little extra, (because every other expense in Vietnam is so affordable), and trust that Viet will give you a good bike.

And if you’re here living in the city, he also rents beautiful Cubs that are just fantastic to buzz around Hanoi in, and you look damn good on them.

This is a good business. Support good businesses.

Got taken for a ride
Aug 2017 • Friends
After shopping around Hanoi, Mr Viet and his team gave off a good first impression, but beware as from our experience, we got taken for a ride.
We purchased two Detechs (2016 and 2017 models) for USD450 each. Straight off the bat we had multiple issues from starter motors breaking, horns breaking, rev gauges breaking etc. After riding the northern loop we came back to Hanoi to see Mr Viet and fix up some of the issues. All the problems we had after our first week of ownership had to be taken upon ourselves to pay for. Mr Viet and his team fixed up our bikes, charging us for what should of been repaired out of good practice free of charge.
Please be aware when purchasing bikes here as they don't take any responsibility for issues that are for the most part hidden and come up after you ride off.
Worst part is, now in Ho Chi Min 3 weeks later we discovered that one of our bikes has a fake blue card after a mechanic looking at buying the bikes advised us. You would think an honest bike salesman would be upfront about this, obviously not.

They practically ruined my bike.
Sep 2017 • Solo
Overall in finding parts they are doing well. Yet I asked them to install a backlit in my Honda dream along with the brake light.
What they did is they cut the brakelight wiring and made an option which costed me more watt then the current charger can provide.
This left me with a broken electric starter even with lights closed.

And worst is: When I told the owner he just reads my msgs but no reply. Really sad.

Had to visit another shop and there I noticed how the wiring has been done.. I could have done better myself and that wouldnt cost me 230k!

Great rental service!
Sep 2017 • Friends
Staff were very friendly and helpful. They allowed me and my friends to test drive as many bikes as we wanted: Automatic, semi-auto and manual.
They made sure everything on the bike was ok, and if we asked them to fix anything (tighten brakes, fix speedometer etc) they were more than happy to do so!
They made sure every scratch/bump that were already on the bikes were noted down on the contract, which is good as there's less chance that they will try and rip us off when we return after renting.
The only issue I had is that it took quite long for them to wash bikes, and make sure everything is ok. But this did result in making sure everything was up to scratch, and we got free refreshments whilst we waited.

Good shop! :D

We needed an extra motorbike for some visitors and got the bike from Viet. The bike was reliable and the staff was helpful and knowledgeable.

2 months 5 unreliable bikes
Mar 2017 • Solo
I rented here on recommendation of a friend. My first bike died on the way to work because of the battery. One after the other my bikes stopped working and was, each time, replaced with another unreliable bike. I have gone through 5 bikes in two months of renting and only using the bikes for my daily commute to work. Even thought the staff were helpful and communicated well, it was not worth the time and money.

Feel so ripped off!!
Apr 2017 • Business
So I bought a bike off them beginning of the month and the day after setting off on our trip things started to appear! Key point fallen out off the socket, left mirror fell of and won't go back on, phone mount broke my phone and was loosely fitted always having to tighten every ride, didn't notice the mud flap was completely cracked and torn. Seat had only one screw on it and was half hanging off and was sold a pair of gloves that were for the same hand was completely ripped off by the price of it! Pay well over what it is worth and probably won't even have a chance of selling it now! EXTREMELY POOR ! FEEL SO CHEATED
