Separate building. The original Barber warehouse was in the back of my mind when I designed the building. The way they stored bikes like so many Matchbox toys. Someday maybe.....

what I find a bit surprising is that, even with no apparent shortage of financial resources, he uses what appears to be a Harbor Freight stand Which is what I have... Which makes me almost as as that guy

Re: Cleaned the Garage

got nothing to do with it.

Habitual cheapness = "no apparent shortage of financial resources"
Never bought a new car, the only loan I ever had was a mortgage, bought my first new bike after riding for over 30 years. Current home is the smallest home I've had in over 2 decades and cost 40% of what my previous home cost.

In my dreams, I'm but in truth, I'm cheap.

Really important to have the cheap part in common.

Just got back from my weekly WalMart shopping trip. Got some clearance baked goods, but had to pay full price for the meat. Damn a little bit more time before I can buy another bike!

Looking forward to seeing your workshop down the road.

Re: Cleaned the Garage

Damn, some nice garages you guys got there. I have a 3 story garage 32' by 30' but I have so much junk in there I can hardly walk. I will get it squared away once my 2 86 1100's and oiler parts are gone.. pending pick up after New Years. I already received a down payment.

Re: Cleaned the Garage

Damn all you guys got sick garages... my town house barely serves as a place to keep it just lucky I have that to keep it locked up! Can't wait to turn it into a workshop this winter once the basement is painted and all that shit is out of there, except the bike.

Ray916MN I can only hope to have a garage as badass as this is... def mad props

Looks good Bobby!

You see that gas tank you sold me in the pictures of my garage?

Commercial pallet racking. Don't walk around Home Depot or any other big box warehouse store if it makes you nervous. The stuff I got is rated at 3000 lbs. distributed load per shelf. I figure I've got maybe 750 lbs. max on each shelf.

Re: Cleaned the Garage

Here's mine. Really messy right now since i'm refinishing our new (old) bedroom set. Couldn't take a better picture, garage door is closed for winter. I'll try to take a better shot next time I go in.

Re: Cleaned the Garage

Thanks Ray, it's the one on 86 750 up on the rack? I was telling my son how nice your garage was and showed him the pics. I also told him I sold you some parts and you recently bought my dream bike, the 86 GSXR Limited.

Nope, haven't made any progress with it. It was intended to be tank for a full set of "stock" painted bodywork for the bike up on the rack. This is the "Where's Waldo" pic



With the Limited coming, I've got to figure out what I want to do and get my stuff to the painter.

Re: Cleaned the Garage

Ok, I see it is as I sold you. Still in primer on the bottom shelf. You should paint it the fastest colors for the 1st Gen 750's Red/Blk. Then when you wanted to go fast just take off the Blue&White fairings and slap on the Red&Black. Cheers, Bobby
