What type of lift is that? It looks like a Kendon Cruiser Lift someone has added a full size table to?

It is the Canadian Tire version of the Harbor Freight lift. I have the HF lift.

I'm a "borrower"

My sister and her hubby just bought a new house and have no room for the lift...the Harlies have to stay in the garage allong with the car. They have too much invested in the bikes so thet take them to the dealer foe all the work needed(he works in the elevator repair business).
So he needed somewhere to keep it. Now they will ride 2hrs to my place to do their oil changes.
This lift was from Princess Auto. It has the air pump as well as the foot pump.

I recently put the finishing touches on a new 20x20 garage/shop...it's all I could do with such a small, non-conforming lot in town.

It's a major improvement over the old, rickety shack that was there previously...and even if it's still not big enough, I am happy. The attic ladder was a smart move, along with insulated doors, ceiling, and walls...the dedicated 220 circuit heater does a great job of warming it up quickly. I used Epoxy-Coat on the floor and it makes sweeping & cleaning spills so easy.

I plan on spending a lot of time out there this Winter.

Went from this:

This question's been touched on a bit through out the thread actually; most aren't. They're builders, plumbers, electricians, mechanics, welders .... many save over time, and acquire when the budget permits. Or use their talents to their advantage. A contractor or construction worker knows the best place to get deals on wood, cement or materials. A mechanic might work on a bikes from several local electricians, and be able to get a deal having already established repor with them. Use what ya got bro, I'm sure you can do what you set your mind to.

I have neither house, nor substantial income, but I've managed to have a garage at the last five places I've lived - and one was built for me at the homeowner's cost. Set your goals and go for 'em, pel-mel.

Good point - I trade alot - welding or machine work for toys or parts or services... I also do lots of after hours work for riders and trade for farkles or (I have been known to trade for Captain Morgans...)

I started with a small tool box in the back of my jeep with a vise on top of the winch up front. Did lots of work on bikes with that set-up. 40 years later- I'm on my 4th big shop. I'm now trying to justify a bigger lathe which I don't have a job to write it off to....hmmm.....

I am definitely envious of those fortunate enough to have a big space to work with. Primary factor in moving into my next house is going to be either a large detached garage/shop, or the space to build one.

For now, this little 400sq ft space will have to make do....and will keep me from acquiring more toys in the meantime...not a bad thing since my net worth has tanked about 50% so far this year...

Well my project has finally seen its day.

Here's a timeline of photos showing what I did

Old garage was 11x17 with a 7x12 shed attached






Cleared the lot


New sewer lines and footings, relocated gas line.


Concrete


Walls going up on 11-19-08


Finished as of 11-24-08


11-26-08


Since then I have the metal roof on and the roof panels framed in on the edges. Just have to get the door on and run electrical. I can park stuff inside for now. The overall inside is 26' wide and 32' deep with a 16x8' door and 32" side entrance.
