Great Place to Rent bike and Buy local Stuff
Sep 2019 • Couples
had the opportunity to rent a Enfield Thunderbird bike as well as buy some locally embroidered cloth and bandhni Sarees. I was looking for an Royal Enfield Thunderbird and he seemed to have the only one near Fort area. That to in almost mint condition. It was a newer 350x. Rented the bike for 3 days. Hassle-free experience. The entire experience was a breeze as just with a phone call he came to deliver the bike at the Hotel and got the paper work done at his shop. While returning the bike back to his shop I had the opportunity to buy some locally embroidered wall hangings and Sarees. What I liked about him was that he was totally non pushy and had reasonable prices along with some great choices. Moreover he sat with us to tell us his story and offered us tea. I definitely would reccomend his shop for local clothing as well as renting out the bike.
Thank you Mr. Shankar.
