Question Looking for good quality full platform motorcycle lift

Looking to purchase a nice hydraulic lift, full platform, somethings that has a few height positions and goes up to approx. 30" high. I would prefer something made in the usa but i have found some nice looking ones made in china. Any info insight or vendors are appreciated. thanks Ted:clap

Cool Re: Looking for good quality full platform motorcycle lift

I bought a BlackJack lift in 1994, and still have it.

Don't know if they're still around, but if they are, take a look at it.

Wide lift area, four position safety stops, locks to keep it from rolling, zerks on all of the pivots, and wheels, and a tie down strap.

I know it goes up at least 18", maybe more.

It's a nice unit, and worth the $$$$.

That is the one a few friends have and it is in my post above that list for $379 but they are on sale all the time for $299. Can't beat the price if they do the job.

Chris,
When you buy a small lift, not the table type, they usually come with a set of sportster adapters. I took the ones off mine and threw them under the bench. They mount to the lift and fit the frame exactly on a sporty.

The hand lift is a good one I use one every day at a shop they also have extentions so you have more room for parts on bigger jobs.
