    1. JOE'S BIKE TEAM.
    [​IMG]
    Big bike service. Tel: 081 8336937

    Joe is the popular reliable farang bike mechanic in Chiang Mai, & he's been at it for 20 years, so knows his way around.

    He started (with Walter Fenske from Siam Enduro) off on the north side of the moat, off Maneenopparat, road, moved to Chang Moi where he was for many years & made his name, but a drastic rent  increase  required him to move North out to Don Kaeo on R121 (the outer ring road), just off R107 the Mae Rim road. There he has had 2 locations after suffering the same greedy landlord problem after only 1 year. His current location then is is on R121, 600 metres (East) from R107.

    [​IMG]

    Images above are of his new workshop, still not completely set up. But rest assured Joe is a top notch mechanic, he is probably the most reliable shop for big bike service in Chiang Mai.

    Finding the new place is so simple. But take R107 (the Mae Rim road) north from Chiang Mai & at the outer ring road R121 turn right & go east 530 metres. On the left hand side you will see a vehicle inspection service.

    [​IMG]

    Turn left &  go down the soi about 50 metres & turn right onto the dirt track beside the drain.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    & Joe's is on the left. If it is wet watch out for the snot at the gate entrance.

    [​IMG]

    Then ride up the driveway into Joes Bike Team.

    [​IMG]

    it all looks a bit interesting in the wet & Joe is still waiting for a delivery of a truck load of blue metal for the driveway that was promised 3 days ago - late July 2015.

    OTHER BIKE SHOPS WITH PARTS & ACCESSORIES.
    Limited accessories - tyres / brake pads / helmets / jackets / boots / levers / cables / chain & sprockets. Because of the small big bike market in Chiang Mai / North Thailand, none of the shops carry a big range of parts and accessories. If you want something they can usually get it fairly quickly form either Bangkok or Singapore.

    Motor Cycle Shop / Mechanic Name - Lek Mob - 0899540752 Young Thai man Excellent service, nothing is too much trouble and the workmanship is top notch. I have used him maybe 8 times and always excellent. He only likes working on bigger bikes and his rates are very low, speaks just enough English once he knows you.

    His location is on Sankamphaeng Rd - if you come from C.M. town its 1 km past the Bosang intersection on the RHS and 30 metres past him is a shabby Thai big bike shop which I know nothing about. Lek's shop has no sign or phone number but he lives in a house behind the workshop front ( rollerdoor ). Got my bike back today from a spill I had on the MHS tribute trip last weekend and Lek fixed everything for next to nothing.

    Cheers Ken F

    Had electrical problems with my bike last January and went to a few shops around Thailand to get it fixed.Ended up with more problems than before.Then when I was in Pai,meet a guy heading to Piston Shop the next day so I went with him. They fixed my bike and had it running in top condition at a reasonable price. Nat really knows bikes.I would definitely use him again.

    Hi JB, did Nat provide the bar clamp for your Garmin or did you get it elsewhere? I have an old Nuvi 360 that I'd like to use but need a bar clamp and and get it wired up.

    Does anyone know if any of these places would be amenable to me doing my own work? I can pay for shop time. I have an old BMW. Need to pull a drive line seal, change oil etc.
    Thanks, Kevin

    Sangchai Panich
    100/9 Kaew Nawarat Rd
    the Honda Dealer opposite Prince Royal College
    have recently (2 months ago) opened a huge new spare parts shop.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Sangchai has been around as long as I can remember, originally they were a small motorbike shop tucked in the back lane behind Warorot Market, then moved to the current location on Kaew Nawarat. The spare parts shop is next to their bike sales & service showroom.

    Pon the manager speaks good English & has experience for Honda in Japan.
    He can & does order in parts for big bikes from Japan too if you get stuck.

    The shop showroom is a bit small & crowded, but has everything for the locally produced bikes.

    A couple of pics from Richy's grand opening.

    [​IMG]

    It was a big & good show as you'd expect from Richy.
    Loads of bikes parked outside in the street with traffic police
    And inside loads of beer & PGs & riders all in black T-shirts.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    I didn't see much else, sad to say.
    Talked to a few guys, but the music was a bit load for any real conversations.
    Nonetheless it was hard not enjoy yourself & the scenery.

    Congratulations Richy - it was a good show.
    All the best with your new premises - I'm sure it is going to be a winner & you will go from strength to strength.

    Sompong Charoen Yon

    172-174 Chiang Moi road, Chiang Mai.

    I came across this great little shop while trying to find a rear rack for my KLX.

    [​IMG]

    No too far from The Kafe.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I had been to Kawasaki looking for a rack, and 4 other shops without any luck, but in this shop I found the motherload. Plenty of racks for KLX and CRF, and many other motorcycles.
    [​IMG]

    This rack cost 940 baht, and they’ll fitted for free if you want.
    [​IMG]

    Acerbis hand guards….Maybe copies! But they look ok. 650-750 Baht.
    [​IMG]

    Good shop to check out.
