spyvito 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.

DukeDesmo 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'

Heh...I've wanted one of these for years, and I'm just tickled and thrilled! On my budget, this is a BIG deal for me!
Congratulations on your purchase. Enjoy. A proper bench certainly makes life easier.

I only use it for my own purposes so, In a comercial shop, they'd want something better.

During Bike Week in Ocean City Maryland, several vendors use them and seem to be equally satisfied.

Hey, I have one of my 1981 CBX's on the lift right now. What year CBX's do you have.

Later, George in Delaware
Hi George. the 79 has 56,000+ and the 82 has 102,000+ Do you get the ICOA's club mag, the CBXPress? The 82 is on the cover.

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

Chuckracer 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!
