Hi,

I broke the brackets for my extra lights and need to get some new ones made out of steel. Any recommended shops in Chaing Rai that could do simple fabrication quickly?

Mr. Chet does fabrication on motorbikes for many Chiang Rai folks. Cannot say for sure that he could do it right away but couldn't really say that about anyone here.
Has some English but if you are there with the bike, English not needed. Show him and he will understand. Bikes are his life.
Phone number is 081-671-8565
The shop is located at the orange marker on this Google map- Google Maps

Here is Google Street View of the front of the place and the guy in that view is Mr. Chet himself- Google Maps

Bit of a delayed update. We rolled into Chiang Rai on the 25th and stopped at Mr. Chet's on the way in. He wasn't there so we carried on into Chiang Rai and found a hotel. Called the Harley dealer and they asked what bike it was. After I told them Ducati the guys said sorry we only work on Harleys. WTF? Didn't suggest any other shops or anything just said piss off essentially. This is why I would never own a Harley. We drove around and stopped at a couple of small bike shops that gave us directions to another shop but it was late in the day and when we got there it was closed. Went back to the hotel for a beer and a swim in the pool and I decided to try and call Mr. Chet. He said he would be at his shop in the morning until noon and could help if we arrived early. We showed up at 8:30 and he had us on the road by 9:30. Asked the price and he said 100 baht. Gave him 200 baht and left with a smile. Mr. Chet seems like a great guy and has a great attitude. Can't say the same for Golden Sun.

Good news, getting sorted so cheaply.
If you've got some photos to promote Mr Chet pls let us have them.

I happen to know Khun Jub at Golden Sun personally. I have known him and his father for more than 15 years. He is a real gentleman, so please don't get the wrong impression. Their business is selling and repairing Harleys and it is true, they don't sell or work on any other make of bike. That does not make them bad people, or make Harleys bad bikes. I have never owned a Harley but I often drop in for a chat and coffee with Khun Jub as he is always interested to see one of my old Brit classic bikes. Khun Jub also owned a Ducati until recently. Lakota has given a list of repair shops in Chiang Rai and thank you for that.

I agree with Ian, Jub has been an extremely polite gentleman every time I've met & spoken with him.
A top guy.

I like Jub too. And from what I know of him, I find it odd that he didn't offer a suggestion or make a call or two to help the guy out. In the spirit of the biker community, where everyone looks after everyone, it is good to send a biker to a place that can help instead of just saying "Sorry, I don't work on that brand". Jub knows all of these bike shop guys here in CR.

Kong Electrical & Big Bike Service

One of the longest experienced bike mechanics in Chiang Rai.

A Honda 250 specialist

The most popular reliable big bike mechanic in Chiang Rai.
A first class electrician. The best I have ever seen sorting out electrical issues
Kong's only problem is he is a one-man show, always overworked & got a back log of bikes to be fixed.
The range of bikes he works on is incredible. Ducatis - BMWs - KTMS plus all the Jap bikes.
He has an excellent brain, is meticulous, slow & methodical.
Everything is done for regular Thai prices, absolutely no price gouging.

Old hands may remember him from 20+ years ago at Soontreeya motorcycle rent, one of the original motorcycle rental shops in Chiang Rai, along with ST Rental.

Owned by a smart educated Thai guy, Khun Tee rides a BMW 1200GS & graduated in mechanical engineering, and has a masters in construction management.
He works one week on in Bangkok & one week off in Chiang Rai.

He deals in Baja Design Lights & his own Mach1 brand Lights

Mach1 lights

If you're looking for serious lights on your bike, look no further than Mach1 in Chiang Rai.
Mach1 lights are superior compared to the crappy 12-16W Chinese Leds generally available locally.

At the moment Mach1 lights are located here Google Maps

But Tee will soon be moving closer to town at his family house.
He is only in Chiang Rai one week at a time & then a week in Bangkok @ work.
So you need to confirm an appointment.
Facebook contact: MACH1 Lights Co.,Ltd.

Something worth checking out for some perhaps.
