    VMAX REPAIR SHOP

    I used to take my 2001 VMax to BoxenStopp in Daytona beach for tune ups, but since Joe is gone is there a shop that specializes in Vmax tune and repair somewhere in Central Florida, near Orlando I need to have the valves adjusted.

    movable shelf storage for the garage

    Here's an interesting thread on garagejournal.com for a storage shelving unit, which could easily be used for bikes, or whatever heavier, bulky items you need to store. The shelves are cable raised and lowered. He uses an electric cable hoist. The guy used unistrut and their various fittings...

    A corner of my garage

    I've had a big home refurbishment project, getting ready for retirement. Part of the total renovation is a new garage. My wife said, "don't even think about moving your old rusty toolboxes and workbenches into that new garage!" Fortunately, she did say that I could get new ones to replace the...

    Garage Journal

    I had posted in another post (Drag Race bike project, gen II) by KariR complimenting him on his work on his Gen2 and his shop, and suggested that he would fit right in with some of the shops I've seen on Garage Journal. I did not want to corrupt his excellent post with discussion about issues...

You could probably get away with any opener but I like this one because its small so its easy to hide. I...

    Garage made Highbars/crash bars

    Well here is my latest project. Just fabbed up some highway bars/crash bars for the v-max. Didn't feel like paying 120+ for some bars so I figured I would buy me a new drill press for that and some metal and make my own. Put a little grip tape on them to keep my feet from sliding off while...
