Cool! Good to hear. Its tough starting out with your own business. Are you going to be a general MC shop, or specialize in something?

And good dirtbike trails near your shop? 8)

I would strongly suggest doing up the shelving the right way first time....which is.... 24" deep pallet rack system with 3/4" ply dropped in the rails (notched to accept it).

Will literally hold 1000's of pounds a shelf....not like the crap you can buy that's rated at 500 lbs and bends with a few gallon paint cans on it.

The pallet racks system can also be used to build the work benches, shelves, everything all tied together in one adjustable system that you can move around and even take with you when you go.

A little more money now...a lot less trouble later.

PS. I got mine here: http://www.shelving.com/home.html

and had it shipped truck freight to my local freight office.
