Beautiful place. I especially like the roll-away for getting underneath the bikes!

And screw that second wife. My second walked away with a bike on her finger. And it wasn't a KLR.

More info?

Any better shots of the wall just to the left of your tool box? Are those tools hanging on the wall?

In reality is not so compact, but you can take out the ramp and rear tyre extension to make it small. I modified the total height by placing and aluminum block on the last step. With this height it becomes a good working table.

Where is the rest of that Triumph, frame, engine etc...? The tank looks to be the paint scheme of a '70 Bonneville...?

Close... it is a 71 Daytona destined to become a custom cafe racer. Someday I will finish it. The rest of the bike is somewhere distributed in those cabinets.

I have a '71 Daytona but it is this really odd orange with white... Maybe it's a '72... I'll look when I get home. It is in line for resto.

After a much needed cleaning and washing of ALL the vehicles. The blue snap-on chest belongs to the owner of the white 300R, he is renting a room. When he moves out, the triumph will be where the blue chest is and the grey shelves will go to the backyard, followed by some more craftsmen paraphernalia.

Starting to like this place!
