    So much for ever visiting the US again. :) I doubt they'll do renditions for this level of offense. So far. ;)

    You won't regret it. - The hardest part was learning how to get the bike OFF the stand. Really!

    Works like a dream. Making the 1/2” hole is no problem with the drill bit he sends:

    Refresh my memory please: is this intended to remain on the bike, or just attached at time of need in the garage ?

    Great photos, thanks. :thumbsup:

    It is not meant to be permanent like the Jack-Be-Quick, that one is intended to help with a hydraulic lift and is $110 in the US. The Flipmeister has volt pins that go through the stand and the bottom most hole bone the “frame” of the bike. You align holes on the pin and the stand and insert safety clips to keep it in place. Not entirely sure why, but trying to take it off is a bit challenging on the left (detailed instructions come with it, and there are recommendations on how to mount/remove, which include side step-by-step preferences in doing so), but I figured out that just a 3/4 spanner wrench to shimmy it after bringing the bike back down, while pushing with index finger on opposite end, and seems the bolt naturally wants to come out in doing that. The right side glides right out after the left pin is no longer in. Stores easily.

    It lifts the entire rear tire a few inches off the ground. The front tire still touches, but not much as the weight is significantly lifted. I am asking Daryl if he can make me some platforms now that I’ve bored out the holes, for when I want to do more elaborate work and put on an scissor lift. Could use the space in the garage.
