Reader Russ A has broadened my horizons thanks to this bike, my first feature from Vietnam.
First of all, as soon as you hear “Minsk in Vietnam”, your first thought should be Richard Hammond in what might be the greatest episode of Top Gear ever (it’s long but if you haven’t seen it yet, you must):
This bike takes a Minsk engine and puts it in a custom frame. The seller claims it’s been completely overhauled with lots of new parts, including the wheels, tires, brakes, switches, wiring, lights, chain, bearings, clutch, and more. Find this Minsk for sale in Hanoi, Vietnam for $675 here on Craigslist.
