    Thanks for all the ideas - my storage pulley system has worked great so far - in fact VERY HANDY. I get everything at the perfect height. The only bummer - it works too good....when I put the cars in the garage the bike is out of touch...when I'm supposed to be doing husbandly duties.

    Here's what happens when the wind blows here in Texas. Kick stands are where you go and recieve punishment for leaving things standing up instead of laying it down.rotfl Here we use a wind chain instead of a sock.

    Hi all Im Ted from Michigan, I have an 80 cc 2 cycle chinese and I am on my way to the introduction page right now to introduce my self.

    Somebody on another motorbike forum said use your bike carrier while its on the car, I havent tried it yet cause my garage is not heated but I will when it warms up here in Michigan. It sounded like a good Idea to me. That is to work on your bike I mean,if you dont have a work stand.

    I built one out of wood (strictly for working on the bike till I got the engine on and hooked up) that bolts to the frame where the kickstand bolt hold is. When you're done, then you unbolt it and bolt on the kickstand. It was SportsCarPat's idea I believe.

    But before that, for my very first build, I just used a bunch of rope and I'd hung the frame from the ceiling of my shed. You just don't tie rope anywhere you might have to bolt something.
