Popular Post Allen Kelly Posted August 27, 2020 Popular Post Share Posted August 27, 2020 (edited) A short while ago I had the misfortune of dropping my bike on a lonely bush track in an area where I knew there would be no help to be had and therefore the task of lifting the bike was all up to me and me alone. If it had of been 20 odd years ago this would have not been a problem but now at 70 I have to admit I struggled a lot with it but I eventually got it up on its feet although my feet were ready to give out. I looked at the MotoBikeJack from the States which was going to cost over $300 plus postage I estimated combined price would be over $400Au, but the price became academic as they are no longer available. So long story short I decided to make my own. The first one I made was a bit flimsy but the idea was heading in the right direction. The second which was constructed a lot stronger worked well but needed a bit of finessing for it to be portable. 2nd attempt. . Version three is now complete it has a maximum length of 320mm weight is just under 3kg. My reason for posting this is to show that for us older riders this removes the lifting problem and if anyone is interested in making their own I can give you a step by step program on how to make your own. All you need is minimal welding skills and a bit of time. 3rd effort. I no longer worry about heading out on my own again as now I am confident that if I drop the bugger I can get it back up with minimal effort. Cheers all.
