    Metal bike storage shed

    Not sure where to put this post, but I'm thinking about buying an Asgard metal bike shed and wondered if anyone on here had every owned/used one and if so, if they're any good? No space for a garage but i could put the biggest model (8ft 11in x 7ft 4in) on my drive. Would ideally need to squeeze a 1200 GSA in and a KTM 690. The Asgard bike shed looks well made and is very strong and secure (though not too worried about security), but not cheap at £1300. Open to suggestions for alternatives, but can't be much bigger than 9x8ft otherwise it'll get in the way!

    I've got one and have had it for almost six years. It's very well made and although not cheap worth the extra money compared to cheaper more flimsy metal sheds available. Mine has two extension modules which made it the size I needed. Overall, very pleased with it.

    Thanks SteveC10. Did you buy the extension modules from Asgard? How much bigger is it with them - and do you get more than one bike in?

    Oh, and which Asgard shed did you buy Steve - one of the motorbike specific ones or one of the metal garden sheds?

    I've had one of THESE Foldastores for about 8 years. Galvanised. Similar price from memory.

    Don't under-estimate the need to manage the condensation issue of an all metal shed!

    It's a garden shed which I use for a lawn tractor, mowers etc. Yes, I bought the extension from Asgard. I will try and upload a photo.

    Go online and look at 10 foot shipping containers, there is a company doing refurbished ones for the same price as the metal bike sheds

    Sorry that they're upside down

    Maybe someone who knows how to correct them could help out!

    Hi Lee, I already have one the same size and have just ordered a second one (his and hers ...). If you order before tomorrow they have a 10% off discount code VAL10, or if you don't they also have a standing "secret" code of DI5COUNT that gets you 5%. They are well made and easy the erect, took me and the girlfriend around a day, you will need an electric screw driver -

    Thanks chaps. PDiddy - do you reckon I'd get 2 bikes squeezed into the 8ft 11in x 7ft 4in shed when one is a 1200 GSA? Not fussed about having much space inside to move around etc.

    I've purchased the second for my Africa Twin and Varadero, so I bloody hope so!! I don't see why you couldn't get a GSA and 690 into one.

    I couldn't get the 'VAL10' code to work The 'DI5COUNT' one works for 5% though. I've been looking at these for a while as well in an effort to decant a load of crap out of 'my' garage so that I can actually do some man stuff in there, and stop it being used as a family overspill storage/junk store.

    It look like it's now expired, maybe worth giving them a call in the morning to see if they will still honour the discount??
