Secure metal sheds?

Does anybody on here keep their bike in a metal shed, or know anyone who does?

Any recommendations of a good quality, secure type? I know that some of them can be pretty flimsy, more designed for keeping half used paint cans and garden rakes than expensive motorcycles.

secure metal sheds....

tbh.... they are crap for storing bikes, freezing cold in winter, spring and autumn and most of summer. And when its hot (?) they are like sweat boxes.... try the front room mate.

Metal sheds

Hi Barney. I,ve been using a metal shed ( Bike Safe ) since 2008. and have had no problems with it. It has a locking bar through the back wheel which is paddlocked and also 3 paddlocks on the front door. The only problem i have is that i should have brought the bigger size. The shed is also insurance approved. Only thing now will be the cost which would be well over £1000.  www.airflow-group.com or www.bikesafe.info

So it would seem that a good quality one is gonna have a price tag and a half attached :shock:

 

Perhaps it can continue to stay in my folks' garage a while longer.

get the best quality one you can buy, then line it with decent ply wood and make sure its vented ,they do tend to get a lot of condensation in them, the plywood helps a lot but they arent perfect unless wired up and a decent heater put in them.
