Title: Harbor Freight Wheel Chocks
Post by papiocho on 11/17/07 at 05:14:46

Hereís what I have.
Itís a wheel chock from harbor freight $40 on sale
and it ran me $30 to make the stands
thatís for materials and welding cost I did all the
cutting, measuring, grinding, and drilling.
And $5 for some "anti-rust" paint (right!! :-/)

Total $75
about 4 hours of total work involved
driving from here to there, doing all the work
and taking these pics

Not such a good pic but it shows the kick stand up.
It also shows the seat back I made awhile ago.
I have all the pic's from that project on my desk top which is in the back of a budget truck getting ready to drive cross country.

and here's why I needed 2 stands

I'm sure itís illegal in 17 states to have bike in the back of a covered truck. Iíll post pics of what they look like before I close the doors.  :-/


As far as the wheel chocks go. they get the job done. they have 3 settings on the pivot for different size wheels. They came with all the hardware to mount them in a trailer or the bed of a truck. built pretty well. i'm sure there are way better chocks out there but non for 40 buck like this one.

Thanks for looking. RIDE SAFE

bought one of these last year for a vlx600, bolted it to a 2"x12"x8' board, works great! one of the few things from HF you don't have to second-guess!
