Re: self built bike lift / tables ?

I built mine out of 2 x 2" .065" wall square tube. Aprox. 24" wide (measure your rear stand to make sure you make it wide enough) and about 7 feet long (short enough to fit cross ways in the bed of my pickup truck.) The legs fold flat up into the frame for storage and the brace bar holds them flat during storage/transport. To assemble, I pull the hitch pin and clevis pin out, swing the brace out, pull the leg out, and connect the brace to the leg with the pin. The top of mine is skinned with 1/8" aluminum diamond plate. I'll see if I have pics.

Re: self built bike lift / tables ?

yeah its a m16 structual threaded rod, i am looking to finding a threaded rod with a more agressive twist rate to make lifting quicker

Now that is a nice looking unit. Is that home built or something Ryan sells? How much?

Thanks.

Ryan's dad makes around $250 to $300. My only problem is the weight the frame is steel.

I have one of those and they're great. Shop around and you'll find they can be had (without the wings) for around 600.00.
