Perhaps a mobile garage is in order.

Here's my space

This was when I was between bikes. I am also a car buff.
I have done everthing in there from changing transmissions, to painting cars,
and catching on fire once but thats a whole 'nother story!
Its 24X24 and I built it with help from friends after having the slab poured.
I built the work benches and shelves myself


Close up of the left side


and the right side. Its a bit dirty but a lot of work gets done there

Not much of a wide angle, I would have liked to shown you some of the tools that make maintence easier. My floor model drill press, and I made a hook out off plywood, mounted it on a hinge over the work bench, where I hung my dremel tool, that way the snake extension is always straight, keeping the RPMs high, and its out of the way and always handy, on my 3rd set of brushes. Also have an industrial 8" bench vice with removal aluminum jaws, and a bench grinder. I got one of those new drill doctors for sharpen all those old bits I would recommend to everyone here. Anyway just a few of the tools that make the garage just a little bit more enjoyable. I used allot of overhead storage for fishing poles and the like, using furring strips attached to the bottom of the floor joists. I have one bay, 40' long and 15' wide, its conjested this time of year dou to the winter weather. I made the bike table for under 100.00 { I have the plans online to share at my website}, which has the Vstrom on it for my winter upgrades, which consiste of an AP-1 fuse box, wilbers shock and front springs, and HT panniers. Just finished the AP-1, panniers this week I hope.

BX1830 bought it for the lawnmower and snowblower, bucket is pretty much a diesel powered wheelbarrow, But I find myself using it all the time. The best investment I have made in a long time. 0 problems 200 + hours.
