Harbor Freight advertised that its 10 inches wide but it gets too narrow at the tip.
Anybody find a reasonably priced wheel chock for the big front tire on a fat bob? This is the one i bought below.

Mine looks just like that one. It does pinch the tire a little but once it's bolded down it holds the bike very well and it is not to hard to back the bike out of it. I can ride the bike into it and get off and just walk away. And I only strapped the bike down when I'm hauling it. I got mine at JP cycle.

^ Yep, looks identical to mine. ^ Maybe try moving the back cradle pivot points down to the bottom holes? Trying to back out of it without it being bolted down would be damn near impossible I would think.

I have the same one as mab864 from Harbor Freight. One for my FatBob and one for my ZX-12R. No problem just driving up into the chock and jumping of the bike, very stable. Just have to figure out your own way to keep them from scooting away from you as your trying to run your bike onto them. I keep some rubber non-skid material under mine.

Nope, just the opposite.

Move that back cradle to the TOP pivot point. That prevents the tire from dropping too deep into the front vee and getting stuck.

I have this HF chock on my lift table, on my trailer, and one bolted on my garage floor.

My Street Glide comes out of all of them no problem, but they do have to be bolted to something regardless the position of the pivot bolt.
