Work bench »Vintage Army« by The Cyclery

Item №
01-456

Back in the pre-WWII days motorcycle work benches used to be made from wood, even in the HD factory, as old photgraphs show. Presumably, most of them were built in town by the carpenter around the corner, but if you were a motorcycle mechanic in the US Army and in the field, with no joiner around, you built it yourself, on the spot. To faciliate this, the army provided service manuals, which included a sketch after which you could build a workbench and after this exact sketch The Cyclery workbenches are precisely cut from plywood. All you need for assembly are a few common hand tools. With a very detailed instruction booklet and all screw holes pre-drilled it will be a straightforward job.

Admittedly, this 100+ year old design does not perform like a modern table lift, but with a little help from a friend you can easily roll on or off your bike and the sturdy construction guarantees long-time service. Hard to imagine a more decorative piece in any traditional workshop or showroom.

  • to protect the wood from humidity, mildew, fluids, etc. it is advisable to brush all components with a scumbling coat or similar.
  • for safety reasons W&W recommends a second person to assist while rolling on/off the motorcycle.
  • the motorcycle on the bench should be supported by a scissor lift or similar device.
