Title: Full size bike ramp for sale
Post by: alan sh on 31 August, 2020, 08:53:44 PM
Is anyone interested in a full size bike ramp? 70" long and 25" wide. Hydralic lifting (manually pressing a lever) with wheel clamp at the front and a removable plate where the rear wheel goes.

It also comes with a wooden ramp which fits next to it so when you push your bike on, you can walk 'up' with it.

It is heavy - you will need a van or similar to pick it up from ROchdale (I am NOT having it delivered). I'm selling it because I need the space in the garage now I have 3 motorcycles and 4 pushbikes.

Looking for £250 or nearby. No silly offers please.

Hi Alan

I am interested in the lift.  I missed your first post unfortunately. Do you know the maximum lifting capacity of the ramp?

Thanks

It will take a CB1300 with no issues (I guess that's around 250kg).

What are you trying to put on it?

As well as the Biffa I have a Honda Crosstourer which tips the scales at around 280ish KG from memory. It's a fairly heavy bike.

There should be a specification label affixed somewhere, normally on the hydraulic ram, detailing the maximum lift weight which could be very different (+/-) to what its been used for.

I'd definitely be interested but you're just too far to collect, Al.

If it doesn't sell you could solve your limited space issue by parking a motorcycle on it that's what I do

I had a look for a label and didn't find one. But I've had my CB1300 on it with me as well and there were no issues. I checked and there's no leaks from the hydraulics.

I'm not getting rid of the bicycles  :008:

I did have a bike on it but it's still in the way - and if I need to move it it's mpre work.

Donít know if it helps anybody, my bike lift /ramp is a Clarke Strong Arm and the label rates it at 450Kgs.

Thanks - yes, it looks like a Clarkes one (but they all look similar to me)

Its not a Clarke CML3. Its totally different, where is the foot guard safety plate, front wheel clamp, lashing tie down eyes, branding etc? Looks more like a Draper or a Fox Hunter but the dimensions are wrong for that. 70" (1780 mm) x 25" (635 mm) is fairly small footprint for a motorcycle table lift

What information does the yellow label on the hydraulic ram give?

I'll have a closer look for any labels in the morning. I do have all the front wheel clamps etc. I've just never fitted them.

It really would help, the two main considerations in a table lift are the table size and the lifting capacity. I know tape measures aren't that difficult to use but are you sure about your measurements? 70" x 25" seems to be a very small table especially after you've pulled the motorcycle back 6" or so to get it onto its centre stand or a paddock stand. Maybe a photo of a motorcycle on the table would help give an idea of scale.

I'll see what I can do about getting my CB13 onto it today. In the mean time, some more pictures:

Here's a couple I've found of the bike on the ramp. It's plent big enough to get a CB1300 on there with me standing on the ramp as well putting it on the centre stand.

Shakes head that's plain dangerous, the centre stand is only supported by the loose fit slide out removable panel.

Normally it's further forward.

Just remeasured it - it's 7' long plus the length of the ramp.

But I may have sold it anyway now.
