Hi Fred
Can them bed frames be modified to get the start point lower to the ground?
I always crap myself getting the bike up a ramp.
Cheers

It would take a lot of work,450mm is lowest without work,I only used 5mm plate and 70x70mm box as it's a jig table I can fabricate off, otherwise I might of used plywood , I am welding outriggers on this for scaffold boards either side to widen it for abba stands and paddock stands,I know what you mean about the overbalacing ,
