Motorcycle dolly

Here's something I built for my son-in-law to store his bike(s) (I made two of them). This one is my generation 2, as I made some modifications to the first one I built. It's made out of $20 worth of metal I bought out of a scrap bin at a local metal supply, and another $22 worth of casters.
All you do is slide it under the bike, set the center stand in the cradle and lift it up. We were able to spin the bikes around the shop (needs to be a really smooth floor for the small casters) with very little effort. My daughter was able to move her FZ6 easily by herself. Allows you to tuck them right up against a wall or into a corner. Neat little space saver.
I'm only throwing this out there as an idea for guys with a need for extra space. Not in the business of building them.

Re: Motorcycle dolly

I made up something like that a few years ago. Except I used 3/4 plywood, & use it to take our sidecar off & on with. In fact I have our sidecar on it right now, & the LT backed on to the lift with the rear wheel in the wheel clamp. I think I broke the front spring on the the bike, or bent something...The front end dropped around 11/2" or so around the end of our 4 months in Florida wintering.
