Central Hydraulics Air/hydraulic motorcycle lift
This lift is great because it gives you the option of being used hydraulically or via an air compressor. It rises up to 30 1/4 inches high (locking heights from 18 1/2 inches to 27 1/2 inches) and comes with a safety bar that prevents accidental platform drops. It comes with two front swivel casters for desired positioning, and two fixed rear rollers for moving forward and aft. The tire vice opens up to 7 1/4 inches wide and the entire platform measures 86 1/2 inches long by 265 1/2 inches wide. This baby is heavy at 400 pounds so grab a few buddies to help get it in your garage. Overall, it works great.
3.5hp, 25-Gallon Air Compressor
(PN 99925) $159.99
An air compressor is a no-brainer. Use it to get your bike lift off the ground, or if you're looking toward acquiring some pneumatic tools, or planning on using a paint gun. The U.S. General 3.5hp, 25-gallon compressor is pretty inexpensive when compared to the competition. It features an oil-lubricated, direct-drive reciprocating pump, built-in quick-connect couplers for an air hose, it works with 120-volt power so there's no need to upgrade to 220, and measures 46 1/4 inches tall, by 21 1/2 inches wide, and 21 inches long.

Air Tool Accessories
(PN 42716) $9.99
To get air to our lift or tools, we chose this 50-foot by 1/4-inch hose that's made of PVC construction and features bend restrictors to reduce kinks, and 360-degree swivel fittings to increase range of motion. We also ordered this accessory kit, which includes dual wheel truck type chuck, an inflating nozzle, an inflating needle, 1/4-inch nipples, a blowgun, gun tips, 1/4-inch NPT couplings, a quick release coupler, 1/4-inch male quick coupler nipples, and 1/4-inch female quick coupler nipples.
Pneumatic Adjustable Roller Seat
(P/N 90825) $24.99
Getting around in your garage via your feet is extremely overrated. Roll in style with this cool little rolling seat that pneumatically adjusts from 15- to 20-inch seat heights. The seat swivels 360 degrees and can hold up to 300 pounds so if you're a bit...uh...large, there's no need to worry about bottoming out.
