Building A Space Saving Lift For Motorcycles

Working on a motorcycle can be difficult when it is sitting on the ground. To solve this problem, instead of buying a hydraulic lift, we built this stand and used a chain hoist to lift the bike into place. List of Materials 2 – 24 inch slings (28 inches to end of D Rings 1 – 3/4 inch clevis 1 – 1/2 inch clevis 4 – 3/8 inch clevis 1 – 3/8 x 3 x 28 inch flat iron 1 Hoist 1 Table 24 x 24 x 24 inch made of 1/4 inch plate with 3 inch pipe legs that is bolted to the floor.

Today is the first snowfall of the year so my rides are tucked away in the shop probably until spring but fingers crossed I can get in another ride but more likely I will be turning my attention to what custom touches I can add over winter.  I enjoy viewing and sharing what others have achieved in adding their own vision to their rides.  This one is a winner.  Thanks Brian.

As the 2013 riding season winds down here in Alberta, Canada I will be looking for things to occupy my time over winter.  I have this high on my list, I hope it comes to my city soon.
