Those can be handy if you are doing your own maintenance. I really could have used one of those when I was doing some wiring work on the rear turn signal a few months ago.


Can you tell us more about where you got it from? Here in the United States I always think of Harbor Freight and their various bike lifts and dollies.

I have a Craftsman Pro Aluminum Alloy unit. Works Great on the Street. Not so well on the Sportster. Thanks to the Bump for the Side Stand. I may have to make an adapter.

I had that same red lift - be warned, if that locking nut gets stuck, be careful with it otherwise it will strip the main lifting shaft if it is the same one I had. Put some good grease on it and it'll take care of itself. I still have my other one for small equipment around the barn that works great, learned my lesson with the other one.

Hi mate


Yes I have a paddock stand too - I used to use it on a Suzuki 250 I had but it's a bit trickier lifting the HD on my own, am **** scared of dropping it!


Yep - only a few miles away. May see ya in the summer - am actually at Bilston.
