Who needs a bike lift?...

...When you've got a fork lift. :36

6T now has no oil leaks.. Kick-start return spring broke, so sorted that.. and with the aid of an arbour press the high-gear now has a new bronze bush. Some tube was found at work, so the engine breather now does it's job better without leaving a pool of oil under it wherever I go.

Excellent all round Bill .. BUT as a Work Health and safety officer.. I would like to see a support .. or back against the back ramp.. just to take the stress off the hydraulics ~ after all WHEN you drop a spanner or a bolt we would not want to see you crawl under it and have the hydraulics burst a hose. ~ and Mum & the kids want Dad to come home ~

(Well even more bizarre things have happened!) monkey

I see a pipe there but I assume that is a zorst pipe ...

I would kil for a workshop like that ~ it would fit in my garage but there would be even less room to move ~ rock-on

Yes Stu.. it's an exhaust pipe.. The timing side set is on the back of the truck.. hehe..

I've got a normal bike lift in the garage, but it's surrounded by other crap (BMW's mostly!), which makes working with it a pain in the arse. The ease of movement around the 6T at the weekend was great.. lift up and lower down with very little effort to get it at the right height. Will be using that idea again the next time i break me bike.. rock-on u k fl ag :250

I worked in a Plumbing outfit for a few years and decided to take my 6T chopper to work to fettle out the back during the long hour lunch breaks. Boss told me to take it home after a while as it was getting too much interest from customers and they were not buying anything :58
