Thanks!

It isn't done yet, I need another cabinet, but it is looking pretty good, and is functional. The floor is already showing signs of use!

How do you get those two bikes so close to the wall? I've got a GS, and RT, and not enough room

The XT weighs about 200 pounds, so I just muscle it over. The ST I back in standing next to it, then pop it up on the center stand then stradle it and exit on the right side. I could get them closer, but the paint is, as yet, unblemished.

I fixed that quote for you, but yeah, exactly, and racing, and they don't accidentally delete my things from my DVR to make space for "woman TV" anymore, etc etc

I even managed to score some older fluorescent fixtures from Dad, gave 'em a coat of Tremclad Gloss White and they'll be wired in by the weekend.



Next week I should be getting ready to paint, mill some baseboards and bumper rail and start figuring out where all **this** is going to go:



Wish me luck!

Be careful not to paint the contacts where the bulbs make contact or they wont conduct electricity.

Nice garage good luck.

Single garage

Not as grand as most of the garages featured in this thread, however space is at a premium in the UK. A single garage made of brick, I would like a double garage but unfortunatly I dont have the space and even if I did the planning restrictions would probably prevent me building one.



Tools include an old sticker covered tool box that I've had since I was racing BMX in the early 80's, full of various tools I've collected/inherited over the years including some tools my Grandad used to repair Lewis Guns during WW2. An old Stanley Socket set that I got for my 17th Birthday and my second hand Eazy Rizer bike lift. So as you can see a professional mechanic I am not! On the wall I have mounted the registration Number plates from some of my early cars and all of my past bikes along with the road sign I salvaged when Copnor Fire Station was knocked down.

Nothing wrong with single bay garages, I have one as well. Think of them as cozy

Mine heats easily in the winter. And many folks would love to have even a single bay garage.

Nice bike lift, maybe that's what I need for my garage...

Coming to my backyard soon, a 24x24 garage .
This shed is being removed today.

Somewhere in this shed, this had been hibernating;
