I got mine from one of the shows. made him and offer and asked him to deliver and he did. Like you not easy to bend or kneel now. Worth their weight in gold.

Was in Villiers services the other day and they had one with a for sale sign on it. Cannot remember the price, but it seemed very reasonable..

Cheap as Chips

I bought one of these and cannot fault it. There has been some discussion on one of the classic racing forums about this very one and everyone who commented said how good it was and what good value it is. At this price, it wouldn't make sense to buy second hand in my opinion. Have a look.

That looks very similar to the bike lifts sold here in the US by Harbor Freight in the US$300 - US$400 range, depending on sale promotions. They are made in China and work well. The one I have is rated at about 400 Kg capacity and it easily lifts my Goldwings. Many riders here modify them with the addition of a proper front wheel chock.

Yep. I've got one of those as well. They can be bought for under 200 if you collect yourself from some place near Retford, Notts. I paid the 250 and then paid a bit more about a year later to C & J Autos for one of these jobbies http://www.cjautos.eu/MOTOR_BIKE_WHEEL_CLAMP_p/mb03e.htm . So far had a Bantam, FB, A Yamaha Virago on it with no bother, and my back loves it! Mechanics stool on wheels and away I go.
