New Craftsman motorcycle jack

I was putting off buying the older steel model becasue of clearance issues, but this one seems to solve that problem plus its aluminum and weighs only 44 lbs.

Sale end 10-1-05

Anyone have any experience with this?

For your Haley I assume. Looks like a good deal, and they work great when you have a bike with a frame underneath. Stick to the stands for yer Gixxer, but you probably already know that.

That pic is photochopped! Did you do that, or is it part of their advertising? I did put mine on one, but I had to take all the lower plastics off, and make a special wood frame for between the bike and the jack!

looking at that 2 smoke on the stand, it's a very light weight motorcycle. I don't think I would trust that thing to hold a heavy sportbike.

It's a Derbi 50cc 2 stroke.

turn the bars left and go right; that just isn't right

Notice the reference to using STABIL for your gas this winter everyone.

They must need to replace that rear tire. Looks like someone wheeled over a curb.

I have the steel model, it works fine for the Harley. You just have to put the kickstand on a 2x4 so you can roll it under.




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!
