Creating the Ultimate Motorbike Workshop



So you want to set up your garage as a Motorcycle Workshop – then this blog is for you!

Most garages house the car, washing machine and more besides but with a little planning, some decluttering and a bit of creativity, you can have the kind of motorbike workshop dream of.  Here’s our top tips on how to make it a reality.

A good floor
Before anything else you need to ensure that the floor is sound and solid. Your floor may have some cracks and a few are ok but if they are large or the floor is badly pitted then you should really get it resurfaced.  Options such as floor tiles or a resin floors are both practical and give a smart, hardwearing finish.  In addition to creating a smooth surface, our floor tiles also reduce the build up of dust and help to insulate against the cold and damp making them a brilliant choice.

Think about the space you have
How many bikes do you have?  Plan your space accordingly ensuring you have the right amount of space to work on them, clean them, etc. and make sure you have storage space for everything else in your garage too.

Let there be light
Light is a necessity if you are going to be working on your bike.  Overhead fluorescent lights are a useful and cost effective choice – they might not be the most stylish choice but they will be helpful. There are also options such as drop lamps on extension cords for when you need a little extra light for tricky projects. Get an electrician to help you install everything if required to keep it as safe as possible.

Providing heating
With the days drawing in and winter coming you need to think about how you will heat your garage. Central heating connected heaters are a good choice as they are efficient and safe.

Keeping the garage ventilated
Plenty of oil, fumes, petrol, solvents and other nasty stuff may be in your garage so provide adequate ventilation in your garage. You can open doors but also think about a box fan to provide extra options on cold days.

Strong Bench
A strong bench is a necessity which is strong enough to store your bike and is a good size.  You may also want to think about tie-down hooks to keep your bike safe whilst you are working on it.  Vices can also come in handy to make life easier and of course safer.

General storage
With plenty to store in your garage think about getting hooks, racks and shelves that can cater to your needs.  Getting a bespoke storage system is a good idea here to maximise the amount of space you have.  Consider something like Garageflex’s FlexiTrack which are strips of white panel that are fixed to the garage walls and can be used for storing bikes, shelves and other storage options.

Consider a pegboard
For those items you use all the time perhaps get a Pegboard that can store these.

Cleaning Tank
Is this a luxury?  We think not as its so useful and much better than taking the bits inside.  There are plenty of options here, some with striking colours so worth thinking about in your garage refit.

Keep a stash of gloves
When working on your bike you’ll probably need plenty of gloves to keep you free of grease, oil etc. so think about where you could keep them that is easily accessible.

Bin it!
Although it could be a pain to empty, get a bin that is fire-resistant with a lid that fits snuggly.

Keep yourself entertained while you tinker by adding some speakers or radio to your workshop.

Other bits
A nice comfy chair and perhaps a fridge could be in order so that you can enjoy your bike with a nice cold beer!
