    I had to move some things around to fit my new toolbox that arrived today. Now I need to work on organizing the drawers. I've got a mess of sockets and screwdrivers. Wrenches aren't quite so bad, but they still need some organizing, too.

    Now that's a garage I would enjoy! Nice organization too ... might have to steal a few of those ideas once I have a 3-car garage. Like the old Yamaha's too, used to ride those myself when I was a kid, no longer have dirt bikes. (i think my last older Yami was a DT 175, latest dirt bike I owned was KTM 200 EXC, lots of fun although now I'm all about pedal-power!

    Nice. Can't quite remember but the 125's are 1979 and an'80 or '81 correct? And if I remember right the newer was water cooled with the radiator behind the front number plate. Not good for woods riding! What are you using for a tensioner on the gray single speed? Any chance of a close-up pick on that? Again, nice shop.

    Thanks for the nice comments! You're close on the YZ's Moto, one is an 81 and the other is an 82. Both had radiators behind the number plate and in 83 they moved below the tank. The tensioner is a regular old Surly - not sure why it is set up the way it is in the original pic. Must have been experimenting or something.

    Like the work stand off of bench idea as space saver. Does it extend bike out far enough so that you can get on bench side to work, or would bike have to be turned around?

    kfb66 it is 12" from center of the post to center of the clamp so you cant get between it and the bench but you can swivel the clamp for more access

    Sounds and looks VERY handy, I like it! Something I'll definitely look into once I have my new garage.

    I have the same model Park repair stand and I absolutely love it. I'd suggest it to anyone that does more than tube changes at home.

    My setup is less than impressive and far less than organized / clean. The garage was one of the reasons I bought the house. It has the width of a 3-car, but only 2 doors. It is also extra deep and has 8 foot doors so we can get my wife's SUV inside with the ski box on top. Previous owner had a wood shop in here, so I have insulation, 220v service, and a gas heater. I pulled the kitchen cabinets from a re-model project a buddy was doing and installed them in here, so the storage was free. I built the bike rack on the floor so my wife and kids can get their bikes and the loaner bikes easily, while most of mine hang.

    Most of my tools are at work, but here's the ManCave at home...it's where the magic happens for working on motorbikes, my 4x4's, and recently the MTB. More has been done since these pics, but gives a good enough idea!

    The allen key and screwdriver holder i made out of some extra maple handrail that i had in the garage.i drilled each hole at an angle so that the tools would be easier to grab.
    I used stainless steel trim head screws to hang the tools on the board.
    I like your setup...tons of stuff to play with. Could I bother you for a couple close-ups of the bench area? Always looking for ideas.

    I like the fact people have found places for their old G4's (I am guessing that is a G4). I too have my old G4 out in the work area but I am stuck with the giant old display.

    Nice workshops on here. I will have to get mine a bit more organized.

    Thanks to this thread, I finally found the motivation to clean up the workbench / garage.

    Cleaned it up yesterday, added tunes (M-Audio speakers - highly recommend!) and an old laptop for Pandora/iTunes/Web-searches for fixing the cars/bikes.

    I was semi-inspired by this thread to get a little workspace of my own going, here's what I have thus far. I'm hoping to add some laminate on top of the workbench, add another shelf underneath, and add a work stand of some kind soon as well.

    Sometimes ya make do with the space ya got
    -Parts are stored in containers and a bucket for the longer stuff lol. Four helmets end up everywhere, other odd sized parts lean against the wall or in a corner.
    -Tools and lubes etc jammed into 3 tool boxes.
    -Recent work performed in bedroom...ahhemmm: Boxxer dcf swap (from Marz Bomber Z), RF Atlas bar, chain guide roller, grips, saddle.
    -one bike in the living room, one in the bedroom, one in a locker.

    Can't wait to move into house with the gf and build my shop back up!

Previous owner (my Dad,we bought here when they moved off) had just erected one of those Lowes 12x16 (or so) tin sheds (before we bought the place-thanks Dad for the extra storage,LMBO!),so I relocated all the junk we had thrown in there (read: hauled off to either donate or trash,depending on what it was) and have started converting it in the last few weeks. Since I'm only this year deciding to do most/if not all of my own work,I'll be adding tools and such as needed. I'll get a pic today (barring my forgetting to do it,sitting here watching for Brown Santa to deliver a new stem right now...).

    I'm digging this thread,some really cool workshops and ideas! She don't know it yet,but I'm designing/planning the build of a much nicer "bike shack" (as my son calls it) in the (hopefully near) future...maybe something the size of a 1.5 car garage....
