Build your own bike lift stand


Here is the one that I designed and built. I really like it and it works well.

I subsitued the flat strap for a 12" channel so that the bike would be very stable on the lift.

looks like the one I've been making for several years now. Works great. You can adjust lengths to work with any bike. Made them for 50's all the way to 450's.

The pedal snaps when you push it down so essentially its locked by the weight of the bike itself. In other words no Lock needed

      The purpose of this thread is to give a place for CRF250L enthusiasts to hang out and get help when in the shop.
      It's for when the bike is under the knife... You're stuck with a quick question, have a good tip to share and more...
      If you want to ask something quick or simple, take a break for a cold one or a smoke, this is the place hang out at or post in.
      Are you beat and need a break? Stuck and need a quick answer or info? Just want to hang out in the shop? Well you're here..
      Come on in, pull up a milk crate and grab a cold one outta the old sticker fridge to pass the time.
      Post up your questions and respond to others when possible. Have group discussion about what works and what doesn't or whatever.
      Add links to other threads if you know they have the answer.... We are all in this together, so let's keep this in mind please...

      This is a family friendly PG-13 site and thread so please try to keep this in mind....
      It's kinda meant to be like "The Recovery Room" without the mental patients posts going off on twisted tangents....
      There's even coffee....

      I would like to get a work stand for my bike. In the day we all used milk crates. Anyhow... I'm talking about one of those four legged things. Idea being ability to get both wheels off the ground for maintence work. Problem I'm seeing though is it appears they are made for race bikes with much higher clearance. Our bikes are only 12" or so to bottom of frame rails and most the stands appear to be 17" or so high. I think that would be way to high. Does anybody have a work stand recomendation? Do you use one? How about the lifting models?

      I am doing a project about dirt bike stands in my engineering class. I have come up with a general survey to help me to gather more information. I would really appreciate it if you could take a minute and fill it out.
