Harley Davidson '49 Pan Head (Hydraglide) Restoration Project Using PRO 1200 Lift

Thanks to Brian J., of Fairfield, Connecticut, for his review of the PRO 1200 Motorcycle Lift and this great pic of a '49 Pan Head that he is restoring! Check out part 2 of his review below where he briefly describes why it was named "Hydraglide," and some detail about his project. “Love my new lift. Looks like its built better than the three lifts the bike shop uses in my building. Got this lift to restore a ’49 Hydraglide. Only put it up ‘n down a dozen time before the bike is totally in pieces. Now it’s my work bench lol. Would highly recommend it to anyone or any shop.” He added: “It’s actually ’49 Harley Pan Head. Called a Hydraglide because its the first year Harley used telescopic / hydraulic front end. Up until 1949 all front ends were springers. Guess you can call it a barn find. Widow of owner sold it to me. Very rough condition but all original. Must have been sitting at least 20 years last time it was moved. Will be a long process but that’s all the fun.”

Robert kindly left us a wonderful review on our Facebook page today - he purchased the Elevator 1100MAX Motorcycle Lift yesterday and got it up and running in record time! He gave us some great feedback, here's what he said about our service: I am sending a BIG THANK YOU to Mr. Clark Heintz for working around my schedule at SECOND SHIFT CYCLES for taking time out of his Sunday to help me out. Thank u sir !!!!! Looking forward to LOTS OF FUTURE BUSINESS. YOU ARE A TRUE GENTLEMAN !!!!!!! Of the lift, he says, "I love it !!! The air piston design is the BEST I lifted and lowered the lift over 10 times !!!! Setting it up, my compressor did not cycle 1 time !!!!! My other 2 lift have air behind piston which is VERY POOR - an incredible WASTE OF AIR ! SECOND SHIFT CYCLES will be REPLACING the OTHER 2 LIFTS, which 1 is a HANDY and other is a DIRECT LIFT. By far at this point . Time will tell. But this ELEVATOR 1100 IS A SUPERIOR LIFT. Thanks again looking forward to MANY YEARS OF BUSINESS WITH YOU. Thanks again for sharing your feedback with us, Robert!

Thanks to Robert in Chicago for an Awesome Review of the PRO 1200 Motorcycle Lift!

Thanks to Robert in Chicago for such an awesome review of the PRO 1200 Motorcycle Lift. We're so glad you are enjoying the lift & we're grateful for your feedback! "Ordered the PRO 1200 MAX Package from Clark on Monday evening, shipped Tuesday and by 10:00am Thursday it was delivered to Chicago! The lift is very good quality and has exceeded my expectations in strength and durability. I would highly recommend this lift package to anyone who is looking for a motorcycle lift. I lifted my Street Glide on the lift after setting up and their was no bow in the table, the lift went up smoothly without struggle and went down just as smooth. I want to thank Clark for the SUPERIOR CUSTOMER SERVICE HE PROVIDED! From start to finish, Clark sent updates on shipping, tracking information, estimated arrival time and followed up to make sure the lift was delivered as promised. Thank you for providing a quality product and a smooth stress-free transaction!"

Scott in TX says "No issues" with PRO 1200SEMAX Lift

"I ordered this package Tuesday. It arrived today, Friday, to south TX. Took me a few to put it together, no instructions necessary, it's pretty self explanatory. Put my bike (2011 Ultra Limited) on the lift, tied it down, hooked up my Dewalt 6 gallon pancake compressor and away she went.. no issues whatsoever.. raises super smooth and lowers almost as smoothly, in a mild jerking drop, but nothing that concerned me. Bike was stable on the lift and will bring my oil changes to eye level on my little creeper chair I already had. One important word of caution: Invest in some anti-slip tape to put on the side extensions.. maybe my garage floor is dustier than most, but it was slippery as snot.. made the trip to hardware store and bought 16' of it. I'm putting 3' per side ramp."
