In a word, yes. I looked into buying a motorbike lift and went on-line. There are two main manufacturers in the states, directlift.com and discount ramps.com and the prices seemed very reasonable -- $675. They also offer the option of an additional small lift which enables you to remove the rear wheel at a cost of $129. I contacted one of the companies ( Directlift ) I spoke to a Clay Thedford and he informed me that they would not ship to Thailand from the states, but instead, they have a manufacturer in China and they could ship from there. When I contacted the Chinese company, a Miss Vivian informed me that they already had an agent in Jomtien, Thailand -- East Coast Choppers which is owned I believe, by a swiss guy ( Peter I think ? ). And that's when the reasonably priced bike lift became less reasonable. He wanted 55,000 baht or thereabouts and I'm talking 3 or 4 years ago. He brings them in from China about 5 at a time. I hope this helps. By the way, the lifts cope easily with an Ultra Classic H-D too.
I have two air operated, Thai built bike lifters. They are solidly built and work fine. However, I prefer the top level , Sharp racing lifter that I imported from Australia. It has many features and can also take my ride on lawn mower. cost me 80,000 Baht
The Thai bike lifters are blue with yellow strip. I fitted wheels to the Thai lifters and they can be pushed around with a bike on. Good for 450 KG.
The Sharp lifter is the red one.
I would like 20,000 each.
If I sell them I will import another Sharp lifter
Somebody gave me a nice tip..
Look here, and they have a lot of different "special tools" too..
Thanks! Saved for future reference
I bought my Direct Lift from Chris @ East Coast Choppers Jomtien for 34,500 in 2006 ... & still working fine ..
