Saigon Chop Shop
Living as an expat in Saigon, it's necessary to have a bike. If you already have a bike and it doesn't run, has one wheel, or no engine, do not worry because they can do EVERYTHING at this shop. The Saigon Chop Shop is openly admits that they don't like doing work on certain types of bikes, which is a funny thing for a company to say! However, we take this to mean that they are passionate about their work! Go check out their shop to see their current projects and get inspiration for yours. After that, check out some websites for used bikes and find yourself a deal.
Once your project is humming along, stop in on your lunch break to see the progress. They're honest and only perform high quality work. For this reason they will tell you it might take longer than expected, which is fine if your number one goal is the same as theirs: making sure every aspect of the bike is perfect.
