  2. Bump. With a couple thousand new members since the last post, I thought there might be a few more people who could add to this. :thumbsup:

    Realized I never posted up pics of the finished shop with the projects in it:



    Not the greatest shots, but it's a nice spot to work!
  4. Here is mine. I work out of less than half of our 1 car garage. It gets the job done, I just push the weight bench over closer to the tool box and I can put the bike almost in the middle and still get to all of my tools and around the bike. There is also another cupboard with some more tools in it.

    I have since also got myself a bike/atv lift to help get the bike off the ground for the work that I am doing, but I haven't got any photos of that just at the moment.

    I can of course wheel the bike out and work on the driveway as well, but being in a fairly warm part of Australia, it is better to work in the shade in summer, although sometimes you just have to wait until late afternoon, or early morning to work.

    I am hoping to buy a house in the next 3 years or so, the requirement is that I have a dedicated workshop that I can add all the shelving and work space that I need.

    Here's some pictures of my shop and the parts I've been cleaning in the front room of my trailer, it's about 14 X 10 with a bathroom.

    Beats working out in the snow or the driveway where parts would certainly come up missing. Plus with a 550 watt sound system hooked up to the laptop providing musical inspiration, (the neighbors just love when I play Slipknot at full bass!) how can you go wrong?:yikes:

    Here's a pic. My XS is inside. That's a Maxim 650 and a CB350. The rest of the shit is engines and parts. There are actually 2 kayaks in the shed too. My work bench, a.k.a "Carb Station Alpha", is on the left, inside.
    Yes it all fits, lol.

    Now you know why it's called the "Shed of Tears".

    52 x 40 full of cars mostly . . . little room for a bike or two :) Building my new shop
    ( 56 x 64 ) is in the works on new property. Now many might say I have so much room. I'm not kidding that they are full of cars. So space is like everything else in life . if you have lots of it, you find ways to fill it up. Therefore, not much room in the end :)
  14. a 10x10 shed right now. building my garage next summer.:)
