Does anyome use who could recommend a table or jack, and if they are model specific, cost is not important. Would have to buy in UK

Thanks

Weighing 300lbs this would I imagine do the job with relative ease, has anyone used one


I considered this, but a bit of a behemoth weighing as much as the bike, detaching the sides does not look a one person job

The one in the top photo should work for you.
The one in the lower photo is more of a trike shop unit.

Thanks trike lady, have bought the one in the first pic, that means I will probably get triked next year. I would imagine working on a trike on a monster table so wide, could possibly be at times just as hard work as if it were on the floor.

It all depends on the condition of the knees....

Tried it for the first time today, lifts the wing with ease and is very stable, and at £300 delivered, what a bargain.

Good photos. Thanks for those, it makes it clearer, and shows that you still have enough room to keep your car in and out of the weather as well.

Now that's a small garage, it's wall to wall. :shock:
The car must have inches (MM) between it and the wall. :o

Hey Legs - is that a through and through tunnel type garage? Street entrance on one end and courtyard on the other? I love it for a motorcycle workshop.

Hiya Viking, I had it built along the side of the house, it stretches down into the garden, we call it a triple tandem, 3 cars cars go in behid each other,
it has one set of doors on the front. I had to sell a car to fit the wing in, I like them tucked up in Winter. It is great for working on the bike though, and mates go call it the tunnel.

Hiya trike lady
Yes there is just a few mm between the cars and wall along one side, the wife could never get the cars in/out :lol: . I only keep cars in it, I work on them at a friends garage unit, they are not small cars, this the red one in the pic


Where was I , ah yes, I was at Appleyards the other day, was looking at this this and thought of you (not the weird but the trike :) ) for some reason. Could not get my head round it, felt weird
