I've got an engine out of the bike that just needs some TLC and cleaning etc, and it'd just be real handy if it was lifted up for me. Bit heavy to do it with one hand while I clean it with the other, so just wondered if anyone had one I could borrow for a couple of days. Else I'll just have to hire one..

I haven't got anything to pull it up to, no beams etc. I just need to suspend it and move around it as easily as poss. I guess doesn't have to be a hoist, but some way of me not having to hold/support it. Mobile would be handy too, but not essential.

Mark, it's a bike engine, weighing in at something like ~80kgs (more or less, no idea). You can hold it up with your arms if you like..

Thanks for the offer HDT.. I was up that way last week, you could have told me about it then! Bit far to go just for a stand, but won't rule it out ;)

I have a mobile car engine stand you are welcome to borrow. You would need to pick it up from Taupo.
PM me if you are interested.

I have a mobile hoist, as long as the engine weighs less than 2T (so no GSX1100 motors then).
PM me if you want it.
