Motorcycle enthusiasts often need to spend significant amounts of time tuning and improving their bikes. Traditionally this is done by hobbyists by using the bike's own stand which can be dangerous due to its instability. For those with a little more money, a dedicated free-standing bike stand is the fixture of choice. Unfortunately, many of the bike stands are too expensive, too big, or have very weak ergonomics. In this paper, we present a motorcycle lift designed using Axiomatic Design that has a small footprint, is adjustable for a large range of different bikes and users, and can be mounted without the user lifting the bike. Though this prototype design is more expensive than the simple bike stands, we believe its functionality makes it well worth the extra cost.
