  • My New Harley Man Cave

    Been lurking on the forum for some time now gathering ideas for my new Harley Man Cave. In my basement I have a 14' X 16' storage area that up to now I kept my 2 Harleys in. It was had mostly block foundation walls, an unfinished ceiling with all the pipes running around, concrete floor, and a single 9' garage door. You can get an idea of how it looked from the 1st 2 pics. I got tried of the area looking crappy, so started at the first of September on a remodel project which included framing in the walls and ceiling. I put 5 four bulb flourescent recessed trays in the ceiling for lots of work lighting. I painted the lower walls with SW Gibraltor and the top with Morning Fog superpaint satin. I had custom mixed the orange bold tire tread railing in between the top and bottom. I used the orange and black checkerboard pattern of GarageTrac flooring which is made by RaceDeck and obtained from BigFloors at a super price. For winter comfort, I installed a natural gas Charmglow heater from Home Depot. I decided to complement my Craftsman tool chest and workbench with a selection of Gladiator cabinets from Lowes. I still have a little bit of baseboard trim work and a couple more pieces of orange chair rail to install, but am very pleased with how the project turned out in my smaller than normal single car garage area. I moved the HOGs into their new home today and they looked happy Thought I would post some pics and see what you all think of it. Jerry

      Jerry:

      Real nice design and super finish work.

      Now you can open up your own Harley Dealership it is so nice.

      It could be called the TNHARLEY Dealership for Particular Harley Owners.

              Like that bar stool

              JERRY, I noticed that nice OCC bar stool and thought you would like the chopper/smoker grill sidecar. It had one of the neatest flame paint jobs I have ever seen.

              You think Gunslinger would like one of these smokers too?

              Had anyone ever seen this bike on TV?

                      I like the natural gas heater real well. Although it has a built-in blower, I usually leave it turned off after the room gets toasty, which doesn't take long at all. The heater is a Charmglow that I got on clearance last spring at Home Depot for 1/2 price. I think it ended up about $75 plus taxes.

                        I assume you ran a T off your gas line from your house ?
                        What size garage and BTU heater are they ?
                        It would be great if company's put real looking logs in them. Some that I've seen look terrible.
                        Any advise ?

                        Thanks,
                        Kevin

                          Yep, dont feel too bad. Lots of us have started this way. The parts are out there and you can have yourself a very good car when you are done. Getting a good tub and transfering all your nice parts would take you the better part of a couple weekends so dont lose hope. Where are you located? There may be a good tub closer than you think.
