    Default Old Chief

    Does anyone have some good plans for motorcycle lift table. Air or Hydraulic, it doesn't matter. My son races in motocross and I would like to be able to get his bike off of the floor to work on it. Also it has to have a tire vise on it, or let me know where I can find one. I've looked around for a vise, but cannot find one.

    There was a REALLY good thread on cycle lifts. Have you done a search yet?

    That looks pretty cool. Unless you have the material for very little cost or you just want to make it as a project, here is one form Harbor frieght $379.00
    The design looks OK I would just hate to have to jack it up. The air is quick

    I have this one, its a Handy brand $800.00, We have 2 of them and use them for riding mowers, one is about 15-20 yrs old probably the other about 5 yrs old

    Does anyone have plans for or know of someplace I can get a Wheel Chock or Wheel Vise for the Motorcycle Lift Table?

    A couple of years ago I decided to build a lift and a friend told me to check out the one at HF like the one you mention above. At that time is was a few bucks cheaper but the point here is that I couldn't have made one for cheaper and I have used and abused this thing and it keeps on working like new. I think the only thing we have ever purchased from HF prior where a few hose reels. I know lots of people look down at HF and from some of the nightmares I've heard of, perhaps rightfully so. However, my lift keeps on ticking!

    Handy Co. has wheel vises. Model CV-17. About ten years ago, I wanted to build an air lift for my Harley. I checked material prices, including rollers, air rams, hoses, pneumatic foot pedal and metal stock and it came to over $400. I gave up and ordered a Handy Air Lift. I've never been sorry, either. Made in U.S.A,.too.

    Here's a link.
