The appearance is not that much of a concern for me. It just needs to roll smoothly and be safe under the weight of an SV.

If you were to take on a project like that, what is your ballpark cost?

It's for a motorcycle. I've looked into using one of those car dollies, but everything I've seen is rounded at the bottom to fit a wheel which would not make it sound for standing up a bike.

I would like to have one, but do not need it so bad that I would be willing to part with $200+.

Its not the weight of the bike. It just makes it that much easier to maneuver the bike in a confined space to its pakring place and out.

I saw them at the bike show a week or so ago. Looked easy to use, but would be a pain for any sportbike that has full fairings. You might be ok with the SV since most of them are half faired anyways.

I could see how this could be useful. I have entirely too much crap in my garage and being able to move the bike sideways to get it into a spot (mainly during the winter months) would be a great help.

how does this work if you don't have a center stand?

I see the value in something like this, putting a motorcycle against the back wall of a 1 car garage, with something like this you could swing it out and back very quickly.

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

Dude had an awesome vintage bike collection!

So, these are only usable if you have a center stand right?

Life has no instruction manual. Parts and labor can be impossible to find. Many go down the road with parts that are in need of service. A breakdown is eventual.

then you know i could easily spend all that just on casters, plus theirs with shipping is 220, half price is pretty damn good

pays for my time to draw it up and build is, the electricity to weld, as well as the materials to build, in my head i figured id build it a little differently than theirs probably using more steel in the process


did you want just 1 or more?

and as an added plus mine is made in america I guarantee that

I used one of these with my Goldwing. it would have worked OK if my garage floor was smooth.

If your floor has pits, cracks, etc. these don't work so good. The floor clearance is pretty small, so anything that catches the casters will make it hard to move.

It's a well made device. I don't see how it would work without a centerstand though.

I've been thinking of such a device for a while and then saw it at the bike show so went home and researched for less costly alternatives.

I too am short on space and I think this will be a great help.

It does not, but I have a center stand on my bike.

I have a center stand on my bike, as far as how smooth my garage floor is, it is not too bad, hoping decent casters will do their job.

Why don't you just buy the part/materials, ie casters from mcmaster carr, metal from metal express (all local) and just have someone weld it up for your. Bam $40-60 and you are done. Metal express will probably cut the metal anyway you want.

Thanks for the info. This is why I posted on here, I donít mind picking up the materials myself, but need to find someone who will put it all together.
