Kevin Baas made a cool one with pics on his instagram. It was like a ramp that rocked as the bike rolls up and when it gets all the way up, legs drop down to support it and keep it from rocking. All made from wood. And super cool.

I prefer post #47, but that's also b/c it's mine.

That's cool those plans were originally from the Core of Engineers Armor School, Motorcycle class during WWII! Glad to see someone still using them.

I've seen a few of those. Even saw one scaled up about 4 times the size that held a fullsize car, about 5 feet off the ground. As long as the center of gravity is forward of the pivot, you can make it work all kinds of cool ways
