    Car lift ramps and a jack for the rear? Dunno, just saying.
    Ours is a red, black and chrome 2017 F3 Limited. Bought new in 2/2019. The avatar is my first bike back in 1952, a Simplex Servi-Cycle. Photo taken at the Barber Museum.

    There's this:




    but I use something like this:



    A harbor freight style motorcycle lift will get it up about 15 inches, enough to get underneath to work on. I would still put some jack stands under the front suspension and block up under the rear wheel if you are going to have it elevated for some time.

    I think you are asking about a table lift for trikes. Here's one

    Riding mower lifts...... some of them heavy duty enough to lift it.

    I use a bike lift to raise a spyder. It follows the ideas suggested in this video.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JfZzDOuv2PQ

    This is a graphic of my setup..

    I have to block up the spyder near the front of the frame to be able to lift it. The parts shown are made of commercial lumber save for the cross pipe, it's commercial water pipe, that is used to locate the wheel stands. Feel free to ask any questions.

    I have another deign where I use the ATV side extensions spaced out on some 1.5" pipes to give me a 61 inch width. It would look something like this but doesn't show the center ramp.

    I didn't go that route because the side extensions kept me away from the rear section of the Spyder. The lift is branded "Direct Lift".

    I use a Mojack XT to lift the front. Back the back wheel onto a ramp.
