Maybe it is a bunch of very used and abused motorcycle parts, and couple of handlebar sets tossed in as well. Smiles, MH

A rolling bike shop. You've taken on a contract with the local police and travel precinct to precinct maintaining their fleet.
I say this because my mechanic/mentor did exactly that for the Toronto force in exactly that size of trailer. He towed his with a diesel Toyota Land Cruiser.

We did remodel the kitchen, still only about 90% done after 4 years.

The trailer did constitute the shop at the drag strip but my entire shop doesn't even fit in my garage.

Definitely used and abused MC parts but not as many as there used to be.

I do have good insurance but the possibility of stealing the whole thing is slim, its boxed in, locked down, on jackstands, fortified some and would be pretty tough to steal.

Never say never, of course.

Two doughnuts and 6 empty 7-Eleven coffee cups? Beef Stew instead of the chicken? A twinkie from 1973?

Dibs on the Twinkie...

The embarrassing thing is the fact that I had to purchase said temporary unit because I have over-flowed any and all storage in my garage...

At least it is confined to the garage and shed I guess...garage pictures to follow.

Me too, already had the trailer so....

And the garage, basement, big shed, huge patio, part of the attic, the other part will be overun when we finally get done with the wiring for the years long kitchen remodel, going to have to floor it for the amount that needs to go up there now. Going to have to break down a lot of bikes that shouldn't be broken down, they may never recover.

Here's a good idea how bad it is, the tool box is over 12 1/2 feet long, 6+ft. high and 3ft. deep, barely holds its own against the tide at its back.

I do manage to keep a path clear for the two riders and work on small projects on the steps into the house when necessary, the bike shop is in the basement.

I think the old ratty Bianchi is the problem...hee hee.

I live in the lowcountry so no basements possible...that would be the ultimate in perfect. One car garage. Once I clear the back yard out for a working shed, perhaps.

...Or maybe, I will just N-1 until just the "not from my cold dead hands will they be released" bikes are left.

Makes it much easier to move to another members house for quick liquidation sale, now that we know what's in there one of us with a hitch attached to our car could stop by late in the evening and get the 5 finger discount.

Thanks for the heads up on bringing an extra wheel and pump...BTWin your response you neglected to provide the bolt pattern on the wheel?

I finished organizing this weekend...took stock of what I had and labeled inventory in each box. Sorted and stashed...

...figured out I need to sell off some stuff...

Merziac,
There seems to be a renewed interest in the Matco boxes here, I think because we can stand impact socket straight up in the top drawer. And the Ball Bearing drawers help in opening and closing the drawers. I won't get into a shop full of tool boxes debate as I have too many here in the shop. The War Department is gonna have a huge tool sale when I'm gone. You should watch for the notice of my demise. Smiles, MH

On no, I have the huge Matco and several others, if I ever get the garage cleared out and organized, I have plenty enough storage, no problem.

I wish your better half good luck when you depart, that big Matco is an albatross at this point.

Tried to sell it several times and couldn't give it away which I'm not going to do, maybe mine will bury me in it.
