I finnaly built my bike lift/stand

I used 5axis's plans and made one like his as it comes apart and stacks against my wall. I liked winks design slightly better as it looked more sturdy, but space is a major concern. This one turned out to be very sturdy I was up on top of it monkeying Patrick's bike around to get it on the stand and it felt fine. I also drilled some extra holes by the front wheel to hold tools. Not bad for 50 bucks and 2 hours worth of work.








HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

I can get you one just like it for 2 grand

puppy pee pads rock, especially when your dumping oil and coolant everywhere

Life's Journey Is Not To Arrive At The Grave Safely In A Well Preserved Body, But Rather To Skid In Sideways, Totally Worn Out, Shouting "HOLY SHIT... What A Ride!"

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.

"if" i had something like that, even for garage use. i would use a oil based paint all over, THEN line the top with skate board tape "the gritty tape" to keep the bike from slipping ANY while going up or down.

i wouldn't want any slippery surface on it.

Ya like those PEE WEE Pads uh!

The stand looks good, the only thing I would add is...
- some roll bar padding or pipe insulation padding on the cross braces that stand out they will Frack Up your shins bro.

Other then that don't let any oil get in the wood or Zing your ride is off the chain!
