Why not go all the way and open a shop in Townsville. A city of 175 000 plus people and we don't have a motorbike wrecking yard.
If I knew anything about bikes I would consider it.

Imagine working on someone else's bike and it falls off the bike lift . Or it catches on FIRE .
Today I walk out and there is a pool of fuel under the bike . Turns out to be a bad rubber seal in the fuel tap . I flip the seal over and it seals .
Sadly I decide my 1200 bandit has to find a new home . (rego increase )
Hopefully everyone will hate the retro paint job and it wont sell .
Its the best paint job ever . When was the last time you scratched your tank and said . "Cool , another bling effect "

That's why bike shops have insurance. Fits would be better off teaching people how to do this stuff.  Pity there is no repco for bikes nearby.  I'm sure with word of mouth you'd get plenty of customers anyway.

Forget what state the bike is in, in this photo, but you get the idea, and I`ve seen the same basic principle used at a bike tyre joint in Brisbane. When he`s changing tyres on customers bike, he does what I do, and suspends the bike, at key strong points, eg: top triple clamp, remove the seat and attach to frame, etc: It`s a fail safe, and will never fall over.

But removing the mill to change a tyre is a bit of overkill lol!
