Not aware of any pix of lift gate for a bike. 
However, if you had a wheelchair lift, perhaps you could use that to lift the bike to floor height.  You could install a modified WCL. 
Lifts are typically removed when a bus is converted.   A wheelchair lift would have to be strengthened to handle the 800 lb scoot, but lifts are designed to be used above the rear bay. And some are designed to specifically hide in the side of a 102D.  The engineering is done.
BTW, nice bus!  JR

This device was recently brought to my attention. It might warrant a second look for carrying a motorcycle.

Will the bike fit in the bay?  I have seen where someone hinged the bay floor so it would drop to the ground, forming a ramp. Then they used hydraulic cylinders to raise it back up.

Contrary to what everyone has posted already it is impossible to carry your Harley with you.  I will generously offer to store it for you for a nominal fee which will include regular exercising of the bike.  You can contact me offline but hurry - such a generous offer as this is not likely to last long.

Bob,
  'Not sure he's gonna bite!!   Grin Grin Grin

  I have a '46 knuckle on a '69 swing arm with apes. If I drop my apes down the dog bones just fit. Cheesy   Yeeeeaaaah baby!!! She also rides on 16" wheels and short shocks in the back. The wide glide is about 2" over. Garbage barge fenders.   
   But I have to put it in on an angle. I'm going to fab an aluminum channel like a short  "H" so I can strap it down and then slide it up and in. Then lock it down. Should be the hot ticket.

   The only way to fly,

Bob that is a very generous offer! But I can make a better one! Ya see yer to far north for the bike to be comfortable yr round! So I'd be willing to keep it here in a nice climate controled garage for free just keep the tags & insurance up to date. Oh yeah be sure when ya bring it back in for storage the fuel tank is full too!

I'm afraid he's not likely to take either of us up on our very generous offers.  I think he is ungrateful.   Cheesy

Personally- that Idahotote seems like a great idea.  Since you can back it and is essentially just an extension of the bus disguised as a trailer, it would make for the least amount of stress on the back engine frame.  I would think that having a hydraulic lift would put alot of stress on the rear of the bus with close to 1000lb cantelevered off the back.  Good Luck, TomC

A friend of mine was looking at them in Quartzite last week of January and was quite impressed. Big problem is the price - approaching $4k.

NOt to mention that most of our buses leave a kiss of oil on the back.  Not fun cleaning those things, rather be riding.
