Re: Build your own bike workbench for under $50

that's a nice idea - but I got a little crazy a while back, and just build myself a lift... 1 sheet of 3/4 ply, and a few 2x8's (could've been 2x6's) and some black iron pipe & fittings... have a long-stroke jack from an old engine hoist to run it now, but it was made to use a regular floor jack to get it lifted...

Re: Build your own bike workbench for under $50

Just built one for me and my buddies to use at my house.






My daughter and I then tested its strength and stability. Appears to be working flawlessly.

I built mine and love it. But unless the bike is going to stay up for a while to get lots of things done I don't use it I get lazy and sometimes I deem it more of a hassle to put it together

I'm too lazy to take it apart so I just park one of the bikes on it.

That's what I do with my Harbor Freight lift, push it against the wall & park my dirt bike on it.

Yeah I had my bike up there for like a month just because of pure lazyness. We even had a small earthquake while my bike was up there . I was so worried that it would have fell over onto my camaro. Everything was fine.

Re: Build your own bike workbench for under $50

I did mine! The tricky part was making the slots for the cross wood plies mine are little to wide so instead of 3 i did 6 and since i am short mine is 1 feet tall ( i didnt understand what i just wrote but thanx for the idea )

Re: Build your own bike workbench for under $50

first i know this is an extremely old post but i just came across it. i didn't see any specs for where the slats go i can only assume front rear (of course) and possibly middle? or did your put it closer to where your rear stand is? and how wide is your two side boards as far as spacing i know the slats are 2 foot and you would want them as wide as possible for support. any advice would be appreciated

Re: Build your own bike workbench for under $50

Looks good. Centre stand in the back yard has worked for me so far, but I like this approach

Re: Build your own bike workbench for under $50

You can paint it with garage floor epoxy and it will be fine.

I've had mine maybe 3 years. I never painted it and its held up great.
