Just to revive this, I bought a Kendon cruiser lift from a fellow selling it on Craigslist in Nashville. Pneumatic lift and the best thing is it folds to stand upright against the wall when not in use. It lifts the little Ducatis with ease.
Used it for the first time today to do the valves on Mutley. I can't believe how much easier the lift makes the job.

Hey, yes I'm a member since about 1983, say you bike on the cover of the CBX Express. Both of my CBX's are 1981's and both have under 20K miles on them.
Nice meeting you.

After years of struggling without one, I bought a lift a couple of years ago. Certainly makes working on bikes so much easier (especially as you get older), saves the bad back and I just can't believe I ever checked/adjusted front cylinder exhaust valves without it...
Mine's one of these; Clarke: No1 for Tools & Equipment
Very sturdy and easy to use with both an air lift and footpump.
With a slight modification (re-drilling clamp boltholes) I can also clamp the rear wheel in the wheelclamp for those jobs when you want the front end 'free'

|Dmitry||Good job Chucky, congrats on the purchase... too bad you will be missing all the Tag action for a while|

It's what I was going to buy anyway if I couldn't find a used Handy or something like your Snap-on. It looked to me like the best of the bunch.
There aren't a lot of bike shops up here in the sticks to go under and auction their equipment. Hell, there aren't a lot of people!
