Lots of space there... just rip out that lower cabinet by the front of the bike, maybe mount it up high on the wall if you need the storage. Then, put your tool chest where it was. Yeah, you'll loose access to the top bin but it's on wheels if you really need the stuff in it. Then, make a fold-down bench or 2 along the wall where your tool chest was. Fold-down benches are great as they don't accumulate clutter when not in use. Maybe incorporate a little bit of cabinet space behind them too. Some shelves up high, above head-height, to hold the parts you take off the bike. Might want to incorporate a lip on said shelves if you want to avoid having a gas tank fall on your head. If you're fond of Peg-board, throw it on the far door with a little bit of stand-off, and you're good to go. Then again, it's likely a hollow-core door... You have a drill, right? Speaking of doors, those upper cabinet doors are crying for some thin shelves mounted on them... a place for chain lube or something, anything. Mount some stuff on the inside of the doors while you're at it.

Might even get that KLR in... maybe.

In my shop... everything has it's place and every place has it's thing. You might see a crowded little room... all I see is empty space just waiting for their things. You need to go shopping

Hi Heckle,

Looks like you're a real noob, we can't see the picture

BTW I clicked on it and, well man... either you posted the wrong picture, either you're not in the right thread! That can't be your castle... is it?

cheers

^^^ What's that about?

Looks like a "Man Castle", to me. Not everyone has an extravagant place.

I thought I replied to this but it never showed... I have the wall covered, shelves all the way around. I'll try to get better pics this weekend when I tear down the tractor to check valves. The problem is its a rental so I can only put so many holes in the walls, I wouldn't buy a place without a garage!

My comment was highly ironic, I don't get what some people put carpet underneath their bike, why most of garages posted here are shiny like no one never hold an oil baril inside. I don't judge, but that looks... amazin to me.

I put a rug under mine because I had one that came out of the living room and was heading for a dumpster. My wife would park her car really far over if the bike was out. I put the rug down and now she stays over whether the bike is there or not.

You wouldn't want to eat off the floor of my garage. No worries about being "too clean" here.

yep, see what you mean... too bad to have a "civil wife". sorry about that. Carpet is a good solution to keep her at home.
Bibette, what about a picture of your man masturb... castle ?

My lair

General view :


This is my little 1400 ZZR (for sale ) :


My wife's GSE :


My track/pleasure bike (since I was a little boy, accompanying my father to the manifestation of angry bikers, I dreamed of having one. It's done. :) ) :


The last bought, my Adventure's bike :


And finally, the workspace : :)

(don't make any caution about quebecian car plates, I'm trully french (so, sorry for my "mauvais" anglysh ) )
