So here is the first bit of organization.  I'll use at least one of these Costco shelving units so I bought one.  Use it to at least get some stuff off the floor.  With any luck this weekend I can sit down and plan out the floor plan and figure out all the lower cabinets/tables I want to run.  Computer area, white board, more tool storage, good metal table for heavy work and welding, air compressor, etc.







Next post should be the floorplan.

2 lower cabinets/tool chests from Costco and a 65" 4K TV to go along with it.

New beer fridge installed!  My grandparent's original 1951 Frigidaire that has been used in my parent's basement for the last 30 years.  It will eventually house an in fridge keg system (no way I'm drilling a hole in that awesome door!), but a fresh case will go in tonight.

Got my uncle Ross's vintage Wharfedale speakers up on the wall pumping out tunes and got the 28' Honda banner up on the wall.  Thought when I built the place I'd have multiple walls to choose from to hang this beast, but after adding some high windows, I only had this one spot around the corners.  2 post lift should be here soon.  That'll will be the next update.

Thanks!  Actually, was wrenching on my '02 VFR getting it ready for sale.  Replaced it with an Africa Twin for long distance and a 1997 VFR750 for the V4 engine.  Everyone has to have a V4, best engine in motorcycling!

New update.  Lift now installed.  Draw up plans for wall storage this weekend and get that built.  Work on cleaning up the '02 VFR and the '05 CRF450X for sale.  Then back to SOHC's!

Got the CRF450X sold and have the 2002 VFR listed but hasn't gone yet.  Sport touring bikes aren't as popular as they used to be.  Well, got my finish carpenter back to build me a bunch of custom cabinets to get all the stuff on the floor up on the wall.  Through the 2 stroke smoke you can see all the clutter (things without wheels or engines) that needs to be cleaned up.  All the cabinets are going on the left wall and hopefully they will be installed in the next few weeks.





Before then I need to install a variable speed exhaust fan where that dryer vent looking thing currently is above the ladder. It would be nice to upgrade my air compressor next but I likely have other purchase priorities to tend to.

Man, I'd love to have a garage so big, thats about the size of my house here in the UK. I have to make do with a single garage. But it does look like Alladins cave.
34 Bikes later I decide that Honda are the best. Now I have 3 of em, VTR SP2, 2016 Blade, and the Project 400/4.

Smartened up and and moved by garage build to the Garage Journal forum.  Only 400F stuff here from now on.  It's back burnered while I finish up my CT70, sort out electrics on my '95 VFR, steering dampner and fork seals on my KTM 200XCW and then I roll my CB450K0 up on the stand to get it running to finally license it here in Canada.
