That is tempting; currently we just use pitbulls to work with our bikes on the side... and we have use our car lifts to life lonestar's bike to the the gear shift calibration(i adviced against it, but was fun.)

Nice!

Lift like that would cramp my shade tree style.





I do borrow my neighbor's lift when no one's looking.

Most people complain about that on the harbor freight lifts. Many people take it of and use this instead.

The lift advertised for $279 is the foot operated lift. The pneumatic operated lift is $429. With the 20% off coupon it should cost $343 plus tax.

Lift is still working great. It has paid itself off 10 times over with the amount of time my bikes spend on it. The wheel vise could be a litte stronger but....it's liveable. I usually use the rear pitbull stand Also to add stability. I couldn't live without it now, I use it to clean my bikes on. Definetly get the air/hyd model.

How about some up to date pics? This would also show how the finish is holding up after nearly three (3) years.

I am looking at a different lift (a bit more expensive), and this might be a viable option.
