Possibly, 50" from front axel to rear of engine or center stand is max I would put on it.
Loading it alone...It may hold something a bit longer but I wouldn't chance it. 
As long as the engine is "mostly" forward of the pivot, it could work.
With a buddy to help hold the front from tipping back, until situated and locked down.  Yes definitley longer.

Along w a small safety prop under the ramp end.

After some reading,  Ill do another few coats of oil. 

In a couple weeks Tung oil will cure hard.  I can then buff it and apply Shellac or just leave it as is.

Thanks bud, the construction is rock solid. 
The router-ing is definitley amateur hour.   ;D 
Rach bought me that router like 15 years ago, and this was its first time out of the box.   ::)

But its the imperfections that makes up its charms....right?
