FNG

3 things I added to my homemade work bench were a 2 X 4 chock for the front wheel, eyebolts and adjustable straps to hold the headset and finally added castor wheels to the 4x4's.

The stability from the wheel chock and straps have saved my ass more times than I can count and the castor wheels make it easy to wheel the bench around for storage or to point the project bike out my garage so I dont smoke myself out.
Castor wheels let me jam the bench perfectly into the back of my garage or out to the middle where I can work on things.

MJRally,

Wheel chock, eyebolts and straps are a great idea. I have casters on the back legs so I can lift the front and roll it around.

I wish I had a garage like yours. I'm working out of a shed.

Found the sign on craigslist of all places. Old scooter guy was cleaning house so I got it for cheap. I wired it into my garage lights so it'll turn on anytime I go into the garage.

Buying a house with an attached garage was the best thing I ever did. I spend more time in there than I can ever spend watching TV.

The Bad - I got pulled over riding to work. 34mph in a 20.

The Good - Cop normally rides PTW's and was fascinated by the handlebar shift. Had never seen one before. We shot the the shit about bikes for a good ten minutes. Gave me a warning and a wave and no ticket.


Plan to play the lottery at lunch.
