Brian,

BK was serious.....I figure that bus should be in good shape too. Give her a whirl.

(BK, did that price include the engine?) Grin

How about a school bus with a wheelchair lift?   Cheap (to buy and to run), readily available, tough, simple to work on, and wheelchair buses always have high roofs which mean about 6'6" inside headroom.   The WC lift should easily handle your bikes.   This may be easier than messing with ramps etc.

Yes, California is replacing all older school buses, but if CARB funds are used for their replacements then the old buses must be scrapped, no exceptions.   Gone are the days that a dismantling yard could let someone buy a bus like that  -  now the engine (or more) has to be destroyed, then the bus is crushed.   Ah, your tax dollars at work . . .
