Your shop is a personal space where you can pursue your hobby of working on motorcycle. It is rare that people can build it straight up, and tools and benches are accumulated over time, as budget constraints permit. This is what makes planning difficult, but if you follow the checklist, your shop may be quite good in meeting your needs. It is critical to have a sturdy workbench with a pegboard close by or right behind it. Having heat and adequate lighting will ensure you can work at any time of the day or year. Ventilation is also important for your safety.
- Every hog enthusiast that owns a workshop should have a pegboard hanging on its wall.
- Use the pegboard the way any good handy person would, to hang and sort all of your bike tools, keeping them clean, organized and out of harm’s way.
- For best practice, keep your shop well lit. Use fluorescents for choice. If money is an issue go for used ones.
