Home made bike stand

Just hammer drill some holes and set anchor bolts. I was told I had to get a lift but I just did not have the room. This works pretty good for me. It has three working positions: sitting on a stool, on knees, on butt, on back The last 3 require a piece of foam board for them hard and cold floors. I have done a lot of wrenching on my back I guess the trick is being prepared for minimum trips down there. Your next cage vehicle oil change try one trip under unless you have a car lift of course. To get to the other side of the bike there is less travel. Takes some practice with the straps but oh well. These are 28'' apart you can run them across the garage for multiple positions, bikes. Those D rings you see on/in trailers would be nice. I just flatten these if I have to. Floor jack the rear up. Plus I installed chains dangling from above to attach from above if needed.

I just couldn't do that with all my injuries I need my bike up in the air. I have a bike jack now but I'm hoping to get me a table lift when I get my garage back from my kids. They say there going to have there own place by the end of summer. I really hope so because I can barely get my bike into the garage and if I need to work on it I have to do it in the driveway.

Necessity is the mother of invention, but I am with Ziggy and age inhibits how low I want to go. I use the HF table lift. Has its deficiencies and quirks but keeping those in mind it is serviceable. Latest use was keeping the FLHTCU elevated in case the Russian River hit historic levels. It did not. Feet were and are dry.

Its a cool idea until you trip on one and take a header into the Tool box or car if your not using them or paying attention where your walking . I trip over shitz that's not there 1/2 the time any way and I cant blame I've been drink cause it quit that more then 20 years ago . I hate being a negative Nancy I use my Craftsmen jack and I put it out of the way when I'm done

That is a ridiculous idea.

Spend a couple of bucks and get a lift, or put some 4x4`s under the damned thing.
