    Harbor Freight Lift table with wheel chock?

    Greetings,

    I got the Harbor Freight motorcycle lift table and it isn't too bad. The only thing I don't like is the tire clamp. I wanted to replace it with the wheel chock also from Harbor Freight for $65. Of course the holes don't line up and new ones would have to be drilled.

    Right now I'm trying to figure out the best way to go about drilling the holes.

    Have anyone else made this mod before?


    Thanks,
    - Jarrett

    Modded the HF lift table with a wheel chock that was also from harbor freight. Had to drill new holes through the table to bolt the chock to it. I like it far better that the wheel clamp that came with it.

    I will also drill two extra holes in the front to secure thw front of the choke to the table later.

    I might move it back to make it flush with the table. Will have to wait and see how the cb750 fit when it arrives.

    How sturdy is it? You can buy a better wheel vise if needed http://www.redlinestands.com/catalog...c-290_304_308/

    It's actually pretty stable. I wish the ramp wasnt at such a steep angle when lowered.

    I paid about $300 for it. It was on sale.

    The first bike is a 1973 CL350.

    I have a 1969 CL350 along with my 72 CB750.

    I still have the original red and white paint on my cl350, with only 7k miles on it.

    I moved the wheel chock back flush with the lift. Lots of room under the bike.

    Looks good. I have a Pro Cycle lift from direct lift. The price was good compared to a handy, but was a more than twice what the harbor freight lift goes for. How low does that lift go?
