    Let's see your shop

    The "Harbor Freight Motorcycle Lift" thread evolved into the idea of a "show your shop" thread. I think it deserves a new thread. Show some pictures of your shop, where you do your wrenching. I'd go first, but I don't have any pictures handy at the moment!

    For now, it's just a cleaned out space in the garage....

    This is literally it. After almost losing my shirt in 2009, I'm now living in a basement-apartment in the far-northeastern 'burbs of Atlanta and this little bit of parking space is where I do most work on the bike. The garage door behind the bike is nailed shut, that side of the garage having been mostly converted into what is not my living room. The other side is where the landlord parks her car, although she lets me use it every now and then if I've got work to do. I can also use my employer's building (10K square feet, 4 HUGE roll-up doors, and a plethora of jacks & stands & other shop-stuff) if I like.

    My "shop" is the small garage I have in back of the small apatment I dwell in, and I am fortunate to have that. Most of the work I do is in front of the garage on the asphalt as pictured here working on my '94 RSL.

    "Veg",
    I know you sold your beloved airhead, figured it was the economy. The Wall Street "banksters" hurt us all, some more than others. My income dropped by two thirds last year. I actually put both my bikes up for sale, figuring to sell one and keep the other. No offers on either bike and not much interest either. I am glad actually, as things are a little better now and the bikes are still in my possession.

    This is at my old house back when I seem to have had a thing for Spitfires. My new house just has an attached 2 car garage full of minivan & Jetta, bike stuffed in the back for the winter. Boring.

    Not a very big area, but at least it's inside.

    Spitfires were fun.
