My $10 motorcycle lift/table

29 posts in this topic

Super stoked, just picked up an old hospital bed to make a lift out of it, so far im in it for a whole whopping $10 :ph34r: Im going to weld up some square tube to extend it a bit, throw a sheet of steel over the top, and fab up a wheel chock. Got it off craigslist, if anyone in the illinois area wants one the guy has one left.. Link It only goes up about 30 inches, but that's perfect for me, and its fully electric! Pay no attention to the turd on top....

It says it can handle 750, should be good for the smaller bikes.

That is a very cool idea, but i don't have the room for something like that. :ph34r:

I've got an idea in my head though for a table that will attach to my workbench, be able to lower the end to roll the bike up on it, lift it with a standard small floor jack, and be able to remove it from the bench when not needed.

It'll be cool if it doesn't kill me. <.<

i've turned down people giving those away, I may reconsider next time.

Is it really rated for 750? is that how much hospitalized people weigh these days?

Sheee-IT! I'm only a couple hours from you.

If you can grab the other one, I'll come get it in the next couple days and double your money!

In fact my wife & I might be going to Munster, IN to check out a bike for her this coming weekend.

Cheers,

you probably should have grabbed some extra parts, especially cables or controls. when something goes wrong with those beds, it snowballs. for you guys looking for beds to use, call up local nursing homes, they should have a few.

I never did extend it, im regretting it now. i did lay a sheet of galvanized over the top so all the nuts and bolts stopped falling through the holes. Ill extend it later for sure, but all in all still very happy with it. No problems with the motors or anything, and even if there was there are two spares on-board from the head and foot adjustments that don't get used. The bike on it now is raked out 40* with a 3" stretch, just about pushing the size limit...

lookin good man!! you could probably even cut the legs down to get it closer to the ground. that way it would be easier to get a bike on it, but u couldn't raise it as far. Still beats 500 for a cheap one!

I know this is an old post but do you know what make or year that bed is? I really would like to have one now that I have seen this one.

No manufacturer markings anywhere, just some weird SKU # and a load rating. I couldn't even find a similar one when i searched Google. But i have seen similar ones on craigslist pretty cheap.

Once upon a time, I used to work in the home medical supply industry. I learned more about that stuff than I ever wanted too. lol. Be careful when buying second hand beds and make sure that you are getting what you need. The bed pictured is a bariatric unit. Full electric to boot. Most standard beds are going to be semi-electric, which elevates the head or foot section to an incline, but does not raise and lower the entire frame. The reason for the prevalence of this type is that the requirements for insurance to cover a full elec bed are much more strict. A standard bed has a wire and spring web insted of that steel platform as well. The weight limit on a standard be is around 350 or 400 lbs. It will not be enough for a bike. The heavy duty beds come in several varieties and weight limits so just be sure of what you are getting.
