I have a Lift Rack http://www.liftrack.com/ that I bought a couple of years ago. There is a nice animation of how they work on the website. They were first made by a dentist who has hence sold the marketing rights (I believe). It's a jack type, but sits flush on the floor. The back section comes off and the bike can be supported by a wood block (which fits under the bell housing of my boss to let the rear wheel hang. (I haven't tried backing it in for front wheel service yet. Anyway, the first ones made wer 1000 lbs capacity, and my was rated (guaranteed) to 1200 but I was told that was conservative.

I think the design has some advantage over the Handy lift (which I was ready to buy at the time). It's very easy to use and since the rack is only 1/8 inch off the floor, it's easy to get the bike on and off (I leave mine parked on the lift all the time) and it doesn't waste garage space.
They are a bit pricy for what they are ($750 + $30 shipping).

The ones being sold now are rated for 1000 lbs, but you might want to call the 800 number on the website and see if that's conservative or if the stronger model is still available.

Thanks for the link for Lift Track. I called them to ask about the capacity issue. I was told 1,000 # ... when I inquired about 1,200 motorcycle and safety I was told "it should be OK" :? That statement is not enough to convince me! Be glad you were able to get one of the heavier models.

Thanks for the tip. I called and spoke with Tim and the lift he is having built I feel very comfortable using. I was told that he was producing them three years ago until the builder passed away. He found a new person to start the process again. Tim said the first lift should be available in aprox 1 month ... I will call him back then.

Very sweet looking bikes :D Was the second one in FL for Biktoberfest? It looks familiar.

That bike is called "Hell-Bent" and it has been owned since March '03 by a great guy in Ohio. I do not know if he took it down to Daytona or not.

When I spoke to Tim Siron he told me the price will be $1,995 for the lift. You will be able to add options - diamond plate. Production lifts won't be available for 30 days. He said to keep watching his website for more information.
