Dame here 30+ c and cold beers. Put it up on a crate or a few stacked 4*2 so you and get the swinger and front end on without drama.  A bike lift fron ct 70% off is great too.  Or pri cessauto they both do them cheap.  I got a harborfreight suoer cheap before xmass and my gl sits on the both front and back off the ground to nake repairs easier.

$75?  $103?  Shit man I'm shopping in the wrong place.  $159 it's listed for, I'll see if I can find one for cheaper but at CT $159 is all they got

If you have a beam off the ceiling you can use a couple of ratchet straps to hoist it up while you put on the suspension.

Unless you have a big fat cruiser that you want to change tyres on every 2nd weekend you probably wont use that lift ever again.


Get a milk crate.

Canadian Tire had a sale on the lift (well, I hammed it up and blagged a good discount) and scored a lift...



Damn this thing is great. Smoother than a freshly buttered bannister and making my life a ton easier. Good call

Those lifts are cheap and they work pretty well but they can be a tippy canoe, so keep that in mine.

Lookin good jimbo. I got a couple of those lifts. One has outriggers on the side that fold in for extra stability, pretty cool and I got that one for free. I use it all the time.

Nice I got my GL sitting on mine and can move it all over if Im careful. Makes life easier if you need to do anything to the wheels and tires.

Got my wheels laced up today - took a few wrong turns but got there in the end. Found a great vid on YouTube (thank Christ for YouTube) and got her done.

Now to true them. Called the local garage who quoted me up to $375 for the job - well that ain't gonna happen. How else can I go about it?

I bought a truing stand on Amazon for $40.  You can get a dial indicator with a magnetic base on Amazon or eBay for $20.  Together with a wrench, you can do them yourself.  It's harder to put them together than to true them.
