Bike Lift

Post by beat » Sat Mar 29, 2014 8:58 pm

hi Gents,
as in the Shop shortly, bought a bike lifter.
was using two different things within years, - none was making me happy. :(

now, spending 119 SFr. = 135 $ = 80 £, I can say I am realy proud to get what I was loking for since very long!

uses the old system of a Spindel to wind it up

with this two Feets, I can reach the Fraimtubes and NOT squeezing the Exhaustpipe / Premuffler underneath the Engine :ban

Quest:
- what do you guys using to get the thing a bit nearer to your old boons ?

beat :oops:

I've got a Western Handy Lift and like it a lot:

A friend had one of the inexpensive Chinese import lift tables but they aren't very stable. After his Commando tipped over sideways (still attached to the lift table) he bought a Handy Lift. It is not an inexpensive tool, but it does the job very well.

cheers,
Michael

I'm with skippy, but use gravity to lower myself rather than raise the bike, 14 year old son if I need a to get up again and my wife if I need some muscle.

Oh, and wooden blocks..
