    Can a 330 rear tire fit on one of these lifts? I have read what I can in the search section. Didn't see the answer. From the pictures I've seen a Chopper will fit using the condor front tire chock? Can the rear flap on the lift be locked into the up position to make the lift longer?

    no. I'm sure you could fab or weld it in place but then you would need a ramp to get the bike up on the lift. I bought the harbor freight wheel chock and bolted it out over the front...works great with slight mod to the chock

    Cant make out much detail from that thumbnail, could you try to repost it, please? Very interested in this, have a couple of folks asking about using these, with a fabbed rear plate, and front chock set-up... so Ive been following the thread.

    Now that's a good idea. That would add more room so the back tire isn't hanging off.

    I have 2 of them with a foot extension on the front, added plate with side lips, and bolted all together with angle iron. So now it is 9 foot long, with stock front clamp, and works great.

    A couple of us tried to get some really nice, custom built ones, when Carl retired, and Carl's Speed Shop relocated. Doug is still Racing, he has a small personal shop, now, and needed 4.
    Looking at alternatives.

    But you wont get the Harbor Freight price. I think that's why most of us buy them and customize them to fit our needs.
