    Hi,
    I have an 07 883 Custom and the Sears yellow bike jack. I want to make a wood platform for the lift. I've tried measuring the bottom frame tube diameter and it looks like it's 1.400" in diameter. and maybe 4 and a half inches on center.

    Can anyone verify this for me? I've searched all over the Internet and can't come up with specifics for the frame dimensions.

    Thanks for you help and I'll post photo's when it's done!!

    Fred

    I am guessing you are using a caliper or something similar to measure the tube diameter. Sounds close. Measure inside or outside of tubes. For inside measure add 1 tube diameter to get C to C, for outside, subtract one tube diameter to get C to C.
