I Love It. No more sore knees trying to back my bike out of my shed, now I can ride up the ramp to my shed and onto the dolly. Turn it around and ride out of my shed and down the ramp. After loading on the dolly and going to lower it to move, do the back lever first this will prevent the front lever from resetting itself.
This is a great idea for people with little storage space. I have a Kawasaki Vaquero. Before it was very time consuming moving my bike back and forth trying to get it right up against the garage wall, I now just load my bike on the dolly and push it. Castor wheels swivel and move easily even with bike loaded. The ramp itself is good quality. Only downside is that hardware is cheap. While assembling it seemed I felt I could get a few more of the bolts tighter. But ended up snapping a few of them in half. Easy fix by going to the hardware store, though.
Love the idea. Works great for a 07 Dyna Wide Glide. Bolts for the wheels could stand to be better but just don't get crazy and they will work fine. The only problem I see is after the bike is loaded and locked in the down position on the ground and you go to raise it to move the bike when you step on one end lever the other end will move and go into the opposite position.. Making it impossible for 1 person to place it on the wheels to roll around. Example bike in loading position you raise front lever wheels on ground now in front of bike go to back to raise wheels and whole dolly moves causing front wheels to come off ground and back wheels are up now. Other than that its great. Anyone else having this problem or am I just to stupid to find a work around?
I read the reviews and they are spot on, hardware could be a little better, ( I broke a bolt putting wheels on, there was 1 extra in package) assembly instructions are none existent, but unit goes together well, no real instructions are needed. When I got the box off my porch, (UPS dropped it off while I was at work) it was nearly tore in half where the 2 pieces of plastic strapping went around the box, I'm not sure how they delivered it that way, box collapsed when I tried to move it. Once I cut the strapping the box lid became 3 separate pieces and the back became 2 pieces. I was really surprised to find all the parts still in the box as not all parts are in bags or secured to each other (hardware was bagged and end ramps had plastic bags over them, stop rods and square tubes that makes up splice was wrapped in bubble wrap, only thing that was). Some scuffing of finish and stickers were scratched, I expect it to look much worse after a few years of use, but would have been nice to have it unscaved when it was new. Although the packaging was really poor, overall the product looks like it will do what it is designed and advertised to do.
Dolly works pretty good. Although not as easy to move around as the video. Instructions for assembly were not great but if you have a little common sense it can be figured out. Dolly slides on my floor when I try to put the bike on, I have a 2008 Road King Classic. I have to butt the dolly up against a wall before it can be rolled onto the dolly. Other than that it does make it easier to park the bike and it take me less time than it did before I bought it. I can also get it into much tighter spots. All in all a good product.
Solved my problem of having to maneuver the bike out of a tight spot in the garage. Only issue I seen is the bolts snap easily. But a trip to the Hardware store solved it. Would highly recommend just don't over tighten bolts or go get stronger ones.
Extremely fast shipping from Discount Ramps. It arrived within 3 days and in good condition. Box was well protected internally. Dolly fits my Vstar 1300 perfectly. Dolly slides a little on garage floor. Maybe design could be enhanced with locking wheels so dolly wont slide. Other than that - perfect addition to my garage. Makes turning my bike around a breeze.
Very handy in a small place. Highly recommend!,
Received order when expected & packaging was secure & undamaged. Went together with little trouble, & although the fasteners could be a little more heavy duty, the unit is rigid. I will add rubber padding to the underside of the end jacks to keep it from sliding on my smooth garage floor, but otherwise, I like it & the way it works.
Now I can drive in AND out of my garage!
I can now park the Valkyrie across the back of our 1 car garage. Still plenty of room behind car, and now my wife can get out the passenger side in the garage(instead of getting out before backing in the garage). Dolly is hard to roll with bike on it, but still better than leaving the bike beside the car.
This ramp works as described. Feels sturdy and the only weak link I feel is the kickstand attachment. It is only attached by two bolts and the plate is only tack welded. Probably enough to serve it's purpose but I'm a welder by trade and I tend to over engineer my own projects. I plan to reinforce the welds in the future but for the money it works. I picked up some carpet at the local hardware store and lined the track with it. The ramp slides on my smooth garage floor so I placed some of the scrap carpet under the ramps and it solved the problem. Ramps glides over the creases in my concrete with ease. Overall very happy with the ramp for the price.
Received my dolly in a very timely manner. Ally parts were there, every nut, bolt and washer, and was easy to assemble. Was sold as used, but looks brand new. Now I can turn my Harley Road King around in my one car garage and makes for better storage. Great product!
Dolly arrived in box totally trashed during shipping. Wheels fell out of box putting unit in trunk. Went together pretty well. Used electric 1/4 inch ratchet and a couple wrenches. Plan on changing out some of the bolts for stronger ones. Had trouble loading bike as garage floor is smooth. Had to push dolly against work bench leg to get bike loaded. Bike is VTX 1300 and while I can move dolly by myself wheels don't track well. It will work for what I need, but will changing out wheels and adding rubber to front of dolly
Picked up my dolly and the box was trashed. Took two of us to put it in the car because the box was broken. Upon removing the box I found the bag containing the wheels had fallen out in the car, lucky me, and not somewhere else. Hope other parts are inside, we are moving so have to wait to assemble. Will upgrade if all is well
I have just enough room in the garage to keep the Heritage Classic next to the car. I saw this on line and thought if I could get the Bike closer to the wall it would make things much better. Another problem was when getting the Harley out I had to maneuver back and forth over and over again to get it turned around. Those days are over! Once I got the thing put together after a trip to Home Depot for decent bolts, all I do now is pull the bike up on the dolly, park it and when I'm ready to ride I just spin it around and drive off the dolly and out the garage door. This has solved all my parking and maneuvering problems!! The only thing that kept me from giving it a 5 star rating is the sub-standard bolts that came with it. As soon as I started putting it together bolts started snapping into. Just made a trip to the Home Depot and replaced them.
