Work platform

Postby NVSB4 » Fri May 22, 2015 4:58 pm



I was going through Craigslist and spotted someone trying to sell this work platform.
I've been wanting one, as I'm going to be doing all the maintenance on the new bike soon, but know I couldn't get the cost past SWMBO.
This hit that "I can do that" light bulb. Any suggestions on improvements?
This one is 8' long x 24" wide x 20" high.

I hope this guy is better at building and fixing bikes than he is at taking pictures.
I'll have to post mine after I'm through.

I think you hit the nail on the head;

Any suggestions on improvements?


Get a new camera. I cannot see enough to make comments, except that you need to have an anchor for the tie-down straps as security. You may have a workshop facility where you could tie the straps off using the ceiling.

The world is not going to finish today, as it is already tomorrow in Australia and New Zealand, and other islands of foreign nations such as Guam and Samoa.

I have a good camera and not only take better pictures than this guy, but wouldn't post them if they weren't.

There actually are 4 u-bolts attached to the sides for tie-downs, although they are hard to see.
They are in the front and the middle, right before the ramp starts to pivot.
I'm thinking that I would need some in the back to use if I take the forks off.
