Don't recognize the lift but would be reluctant to put any bike up on it with the base being that narrow.

The base is narrow but it came with a heavy pipe that goes through the base pipe at one end and makes it about 3 foot wide, and the other end will accept a 1" pipe of whatever size I buy, so I figure it has a 3 foot width on the bottom.

Does it have any kind of load rating on it?
I'd be hesitant to trust it without knowing.
I guess another good reason to find out more about it.

What does it use for lift? Air? Hydraulic? Electric Motor?

Craigslist.

Missing ramp and lift.
Want to know who makes or made it, is build or buy parts.
Hydraulic I assume.
I am told it "had" a sticker one it in the past that said 100 lbs.

I don't understand this. Can you re-word it a bit?

The guy I got it from said when he got it it had a sticker on it that said maximum weight 1000 lbs.
Before when I typed it I mistyped it and said 100 lbs.
In his attempt to fix it, he lost/removed the sticker.
He did however supply a few pieces that he had fashioned out of steel for tie downs and the long tube (3') that slid into it to make the footprint approx 2 foot wider.
