Their handy storage and quick option to get you going but the longer you use then you find the item you want always ends up in the back behind everything else you need strategically positioned doors all over them . Have you thought of throwing some steel sections on top of them and storing some of your stuff up top?

aye they need to be organised for sure Mike ....

the one is tools - 'bout a third benches either side and across the far end with shelving above & below -
then cupboards, pigeon holes, polystore drawers and other tool draws for spanners, drill bits, taps, etc., etc..

Another is shelved floor to ceiling half way, with a load of cupboards and benches on top of them double stacked -
hard to describe them, but all pretty organised and being stored them selves for use in 'the shed', eventually.
that'll be some job emptying them and shifting 'em to their new home

The third one is open full length with 'larger stuff' on the floor, some palletised plus a few of me bikes and about 1400mm above them is a full length rail system with full width decks that'll roll out the doors onto forks.
they'm crammed with all sorts, ranging from enough bits and rolling chassis to build another three Z 1000st,s to go with the other two parked underneath , to 20 ltr cans of oils, antifreeze, etc. and just about anything that's hand ball-able up onto the decks ..... I've some pix somewhere if I can find 'em

The first ones pretty decently set up with the cupboards and roller cabinets. Looks like a handy workshop store. We have a couple at work set up for stores and works if kept clear and accessible, as soon as you have to start clambering over stuff to drag out something from behind you know it ain't working.

Aye - clambering's no good ---- when they came home they were all stuffed to the gunwales ... took a while to get 'em organised

First one's me 'tool box' has to be organised or I'd never find anything

looooong time since I rode any competition stuff Dylan ....
time trials and enduros - motocross was a leave the brain in the van jobbie - couldn't afford the injury risk level !! the other two were bad enough, but kept me fit

All me comp stuff went a long time ago -
250 and 350 KTMs, couple of CR250 Hodna Red Rockets, 220 Minarelli Cotton, a few Montessa Cotas (250 and 350s), 250 Ossa, 250 Majesty Yammy, TL125 Hodna and a 250 Suzy trials, SP, with the Nikasil bore, IIRC

as for me existing collection .... have to think ...

GL1500 Hodna Goldwing
FJ1200 Yammy
XT600 Tenere Yammy
RD400 Yammy (sold recently though)
KLX250 Kawi
325Rotax SWM/Gori (will never part with it - brilliant motor)
Z1000st Kawkas - two complete/running - three more in bits, awaiting reassembly

'Bout it I think Dylan

had one of the original DT175s - candy orange on an N plate IIRC ... was a lovely bike.
Only 125 I've ever owned was an original Hodna Benley twin, bout '68/'69 ... wish I still had it ... real classic now. ... was like the CD175/CB175 with a pressed steel frame .... absolute slug

The CR Hodnas on the other hand were awesome ..... campaigned both of them in time trials and enduros .... great steering lock on 'em...almost trials level.
If a section was too tight, I'd just yell FIVE and the marshals'd get the **** out the way, 'cos I was coming through 'on song' .... real weapon for enduro-ing on - 3 power bands .... dropped a tooth on the front sprocket so I could make use of the third band ..... young, fit and out for a ride
