You tinker with your bike, perform your own basic maintenance, don’t have much available room in your garage and no budget for a professional lift. You can make your own crate workstand with a piece of wood and 2 dairy crates, or use a pre-made one offering sturdiness, stability and versability.
This “professional” Wheel Crate Workstand is using two heavy-duty dairy crates (not the lightweight department store storage boxes) and a ramp, is easily assembled and disassembled when the job is done. When the job is done, pick it up and lean it vertically against the wall, out of the way until it’s needed again.
It will raise your bike 11″, which is great for display, detailing, cleaning and some repairs (maxi weight is 500 lbs). Includes complete set-up and use instructions. Dimensions (set-up) 116.5″x48″x20″. Zinc plated steel model is 48 lbs ($237). Aluminum model is 25 lbs ($267) Order two Wheel Crates per stand ($12 each) and one set of tie downs ($30). Ships UPS.
