Harley-Davidson Cruiser Cradle Wheel Chock

I recently purchased Harley-Davidson's Cruiser Cradle Wheel Chock (local dealership had them on sale for 20% off) and I am really happy with my purchase. It fits my 2016 Ultra Limited and my wife's 2016 Forty-Eight perfectly and both bikes are extremely stable while in the chock. Assembly was easy - two bolts to mount the cross bar/base and that was it. Makes working on bikes easier and for $35 there is an adapter kit so it can be used with a trailer. Easy to roll both bikes on and off the cradle. I know they are expensive, but it's something I will always have in my garage to use.

Looks good DRVMN! We park ours one in front of the other so it would only work for the first bike if you bolt it in the ground.

Thanks!

I'd love to pick up another cradle/wheel chock so I have one for each bike. Nice thing about this unit - it's super sturdy without even being bolted to the ground. It does not slide on the garage floor either when driving into the cradle/chock. It holds both bikes solid and I am very happy with how it works.

It's identical to the "Condor Pit Stop" that I have except for the badging. I suspect Harley has contracted Condor to make it for them. Harley , of course, has added the Harley tax. It's a good chock and have had my Condor for many years with no issues except the rubber feet have come off. Glue apparently has dried out.
Here is a LINK to the Condor web site advert.

That looks like the one Harbor freight has for about 60 bucks every day if you use the 20% coupon it would be cheaper .

Here's the Harbor freight one for 59.99

How much was the Harley Davidson one any way

The Condor Pit Stop does look identical to the Harley-Davidson Cruiser Cradle Wheel Chock. I looked to see if Condor's name was anywhere but all I could find was a Patent Number on a sticker. Condor's name is probably under the Harley-Davidson sticker! The price is similar to Harley-Davidson's price. Good information - Thanks!

Do these just hold the bike up or can you jack the middle of the bike to get it higher, for working underneath the bike?

Yikes; The Condor is $270 before shipping. For something that just sits there, the Harbor Freight $60 just got prettier to me.

I paid $222.29 (with tax) for the one I purchased at my local Harley-Davidson dealership, and that was with a 20% discount. Otherwise I think they retail for around $259.95. The dealership was demonstrating these stands on a trailer and also had some other wheel chock stands that they used to use as well. Their old stands were pretty beat up and bent compared to the ones they are using now - granted they haul a lot of bikes around for deliveries and pick-ups. I realize there are less expensive units available and they would do the job . . . I just like how incredibly sturdy this unit was with my Ultra Limited, without even being strapped down. I like the fact that I can purchase a kit to quickly mount/dismount the wheel chock to a trailer too.

The wheel chock will allow the bike to be parked upright. That makes oil changes a bit easier, and it also makes it easier to work on the bike, clean it, etc. - at least that's what I've discovered so far. It also makes it easier to roll my motorcycle jack under the bike with it already being in an upright position. I've had some bikes that are lower to the ground and my jack will not fit under the bike unless it's upright or the front wheel is on a board to raise it off the gound a bit more. My wife used to own a 2015 Street 750 and on that model, the bike was supposed to be upright when checking the oil. It's not a necessity by any means, but it makes some tasks a litle bit easier.
