A Cheaper and Stronger Lift!

I completed the lift with one modification. I made the front stop removable which makes it more versatile.

The only thing I would change is how the pivot holes are laid out on the plans...

Measure the first hole from one end and then measure second hole from the first hole.

I like how this lift saves my back when working on bikes.

It is stronger and cheaper than a tool store lift.

I have bought several plans from custom-choppers-guide.com, and I built the bike lift so far. It cost less than Harbor Freights table and is a lot stronger.

The pans were easy to read, and made it a snap to build.

I will try the English wheel next.


PS: Notice the plan in the background. Next project when we get caught up - frame jig and a bobber for my son.

Looks like I better get off my bike and finally build mine.

Got rid of the chinese one when I moved. It was sketchy, anyway, so I gave it away.

Looks like you're building something FUN!
