    I got a double motorcycle lift!

    This lift was a long sought after dream. I finally got it! When I recently moved into my new house, I had the garage modified to be lift ready. The tracks were raised close to the 10 ft ceiling and a LiftMaster side mount opener was installed. While he was here, I had him add a window panel in the door to add in some natural light. I couldn't be happier with it. It does so many things for me. It makes my 2 car garage a 3 car garage, works as an elevator for the attic storage, stores my Hawk and Vespa off the floor, allows me to service my cars (and motorcycles) and store my future sports car. When I work on my bikes, it also serves as a height adjustable workbench.

    With the prices of 4 post lifts at around 5 big ones, I was able to acquire this used American made lift for half the price. It needed some new pulleys, pivots, rewiring and the cables adjusted. It is an awesome addition to my new shop.

    I'm also kicking around the idea of tire changer. It should pay off in a few tire changes, car and motorcycle. No Mar changer.

      I know right!? I gotta stop telling my friends I have a lift! Before I know it, everyone and their brother wants to come over and work on their cars! Maybe I shouldn't get that tire changer too!?

        Congrats! Makes a whole lot of maintenance a whole lot easier to deal with! I desperately miss having a lift in my shop, but not enough to have stay married to that wife.

        New life and new house have left me with a garage ceiling only 7'6" high so no lift in my future. I now make do with a QuickJack which at least let's me roll under a car easily, if not walk under.

          Thanks! Yes, it does! The QuickJacks were first on my list, then the MaxJax. I even considered a Bendpack Scissor lift, which I had for a few years to work on my zhp e46. At least, the QJ's are portable and can hang on the wall when not in use.

          I recently got a 2nd TDi, a MK6 4 door Golf manual. The first job on the lift will be exhaust work on that Golf.

              Awesome dude! The Home thing that I miss from the farm is the lift. There are jobs I would do with it that I just plain won't do without.

              You are going to have some VERY friendly neighbors.
              Don't spend money and buy, spend time and learn.

                Yup, it's pretty visible every time the door opens!
