Ideas for garage storage for accessories

I've got a 1 car garage that belongs to the Road Glide and my automotive tools and accessories. Its a lot to fit in 1 bay. I already have a Craftsman work table with matching tool chest underneath, storage closet, shelf, and overhead cabinets. Then another 25 year old tool chest. The shelves are full of cleaning products, and maintenance stuff like oil/lubricant bottles, oil filters, air filters, plugs, hand cleaner, etc.

Then other automotive stuff like air compressor, oil drainage pans/funnels/siphons, motorcycle jacks, automotive hydraulic jacks, jack-stands, and a gas generator in there.

Then for motorcycle accessories I've got I've got 3 different seats, 2 different size sissy bars, a spare set of tires mounted on spare wheels, a spare 8" windshield, etc. Then I've got a bunch of take-off parts, such as mirrors, hand levers, handlebars, mufflers, footpegs, shocks, etc.

I need some ideas on good storage solutions, especially for the seats, sissy bars and tires/wheels. What do you guys do to store your stuff efficiently in the garage. I always dreamed of having the nice tiles on the floor, and a few signs on the walls. My seats are hanging on hooks on the wall, but its not ideal.

Appreciate ideas and better yet, pics of your garage. Maybe I'll go out and photo mine after a little bit of cleanup. Someday I'll lay rubberized garage tiles on the floor, and a few Harley signs on the wall Thanks for any ideas!

Look into over head storage if you have at least an 8' ceiling

Actually, I have a small opening about 30" square in the ceiling. I could put plywood floors down for some space, and hang a ladder on the wall. The take off parts should go up there. The tires on wheels might fit, I'm not sure. Not very convenient for quick access to seats and sissy bars which get changed out often.

I installed one of those drop down ladders flush with the ceiling. Store alot of things up overhead. I've got a 10/12 pitch roof so there is alot of head room. I now have everything in steel cabinets. It's nice to just close the doors and not see all the clutter.

I've got two extra seats to store. I used to ha e them on top of a shelf but other stuff would get on top of them and they weren't easy access. I have cabinets and put hooks underneath. Good for seat and jackets and helmets ect.

It's funny how we keep expecting leaders from a system that rewards weasels.

That works pretty good. My cabinets are metal, and don't have much space because the work table is there.

Right now I've got an area of the wall with peg board. I have a few hooks in there that hold up the seats. I don't like it because the hooks come out when I take the seats off. A nice strong hook that is small enough to slip through the hole on the end of the seat, yet is mounted pretty deep in a stud in the wall is what I'm looking for.

I also have my touring bag that needs to be stored somewhere. Another candidate for above the ceiling, but would like to put it on a shelf or wall somewhere accessible.

Wow, you need a pole barn. You must be an e-bay seller or something.
