Double Decker Bike Storage Lift (pics!)

Recommended Posts

Here's some pics of the double decker bike storage rack I made for my two 'kid' bikes. (TTR90 and BW80) (and yes, they really are for my kids)
I wanted/needed to free up some space in garage, and be able to freely move them around as needed. Plus, the upper one is at a good  height for service.
Designed on Google Sketchup, fab'd and MIG welded at home.
All 2" square tubing, except the sliding sleeve, which is 2.25" square.
The lower legs and 'spine' are 3/16 wall thickness. The 'upper' level is 0.090" and 0.110"
Plywood is 3/4".  Caster wheels are 1/2-13 threaded direct into the lower legs.
Pully system is 1Ton, worm gear hand crank boat trailer winch from HF. 
Approx 26" x 52" foot print, 6foot total height. Probably weighs 60lbs.
I use my cordless drill to raise and lower the platform. Can use hand crank as backup.
I load tested it with my fat butt, and Im 6'6" 230lbs.
Enjoy the pics.

Seems like a great way to free up a little space plus the stand itself seems to compact nicely. Well built and nice job man!
