I have an MH900e that sits in my lounge, however, I would like to hang it from the wall in the dining room .

I also ride the bike every other weekend or so, hence it must be reasonably simple to get down put up.

I was thinking of making a triangular frame for the one side of the bike – in the shape of a capital “A”. The idea would be for the lower two ends of the A frame to bend around (have bars at 90 degrees welded on) to pass through the hollow axels front and rear. The apex (top) of the A would then be attached to a cable to raise the bike up.

I plan to put an electric winch in the ceiling bolted to the rafters to raise it up and a very narrow stainless steel shelf for the wheels to sit on once the bike is up.

There would need to be a circlip of sorts to secure the A frame where it passes through the hollow axels – to stop the bike slipping off. Additionally, the top of the A frame would need to be secured near the top of the bike to stop the bike falling over and hanging upside-down – I want to have the tyres on the shelf against the wall and the bike angled out at 45 degrees.

Questions:

1) Would this sort of arrangement wear the bearings in the wheels / headstock?
2) Would the frame distort if the A frame was attached to it under the seat / tank and the bike was angled out?
3) How could one best secure the top of the A frame to the bike without damaging it?
4) Has anyone calculated the centre of gravity for an MH900e?
5) Any examples of this being done (and how!)?

And most important – is this stupid?

What kind of oil do you plan to use in the winch?

I would just build a platform against the wall that the floor is on a hydraulic, like an elevator without the cables. You could push the bike onto it and raise it up. Simple and no stress on your bike.

Oh and you F'ing crazy

Crazy yes, nice hell yeah, but I think the cost of it and trouble will be too much
Good luck, if you get it done post some pic

Why don't you just buy another MH and keep it on display. That way, all you have to build is a simple fixed platform for it...

What is the structure of your house. I'd be worried about ripping the ceiling/wall down with an MH bolted to it.

Take a photo of it ... get it enlarged into a poster and frame it ... and stick that on the wall.

Save yourself a lot of grief ... and you can still get your jollies off looking at it


Put the real bike back in the garage where it belongs ...
