You could nearly do short track in that shed .....
lol. Not quite, but there definitely has been a large number of smoky burnouts performed over the years.
cracking shed mate!! love the bike bench/hoist/jig haha
Speaking of sheds, I still have to organise my $50* Second-Hand Gumtree Special™† and get some decent pics up.
Here's a few teasers...
Shed from the front:
Side view - need power in there!
Interior on Day 1:
Interior on Day 2:
Interior a week later:
*Initial cost of shed only.‡
‡Does not include accessories or floor. Some disassembly, transport and reassembly required. Contains small parts. Keep away from small children or animals. Do not expose to naked flames. Hand wash only.
sen any more at that price?
Not been looking lately. The next cheapest was $200, only partially dismantled and wouldn't fit in my trailer so I gave it a miss.
As always Fred, they are never big enough.
Reorganized it over the weekend, here are some pics of the result:
4 project bikes;
assorted spare parts from 3 other bikes;
350kg-rated folding loading ramp;
2 battery chargers;
floor-mount front wheel clamp/stand (still to be mounted);
a small set of makeshift shelves
a heater to keep the Canberra cold at bay;
a clock radio for music to work by.
All organised in a 2.8 metre x 3 metre shed.
Final tweaking of the limited space is still pending...
Beer fridge ?
Time to step outside to regain normal breathing. That shed is loaded Fred
Not necessary in Canberra winter - just leave the beer outside the shed!
I prefer cider or whiskey anyway honestly...
Managed to fit a workbench in, did a bit more of a tidy-up and blogged my progress. Start reading here if you want to see the full progress.
Here's a couple of more recent pics - more to come!
Left side - Eric and Scarlet, with one of Nix's spare fairings.
Right side - Rosie and Bruiser (under the bench) with all the other spare parts.
So keeping the ball rolling, my garage before I moved house. Fairly messing and I hated working on the ground.
Then I moved house and the new place had a fairly small garage but not a bad size really for bikes. Same bikes and stuff, just organised. Also made a bike bench for the NSR. My back said thank you after that was put together.
And yes, I did knock down the wall and continued the tiling because motorcycles come first! I just need to plaster it and install better lighting to reduce shadows.
You guys have me covered lol
ohhhh i love this thread
The current edition on the shelf of Classic Bike has an interview with a guy who owns several bikes and has photos taken of the bikes in his shed. Nice bikes but then there was a bar and a pool table. I'm thinking why dude? When I'm in the shed I'm there to work on the bikes not play pool and look at them. Plus it just takes up room for an engine stand or a bike lift or a bench or a shelf unit (which I've found you can never have enough). The only problem having a shed is that now every 5 weeks I have to move everything out to give it a good sweeping - takes a good day at least. But it does give me a chance to admire the fleet mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.........
Bike garage as is stands... moving soon and will have a better one
If all the crap on the right hand side was gone you could easily fit six bikes or more in there
Who needs a shed when you have a nice big single garage and access to the whole area under the house?
There will be room for a man cave, bar & fridge, bike storage and workshop.
A bit of concrete on the floor and you will have the perfect storage area for even more fizzers.
Got the new toolbox too. Exactly the same as what @GreyImport has. Can't complain for the price ($150 + $70 freight) http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/251038581770
