Yep, I certainly know how you feel. Sometimes you think you have to re-engineer the world, just to get something simple done. Below is the website for Condor wheel chocks. They sell all the individual parts for their chocks. The over-center wheel lock is $69.00. And, it's "axle" (or the part it pivots on, is right close to about 8" wide or so. I'd have to dig further into their site or, give them a call to be sure of the measurements. If you dive into their site, look on the left side and you'll see a list. One of the selections is "Accessories".

Click on that one and you'll see the over-center wheel lock.

But, that axle or, pivot point, can be cut to your desired width. For a mere $69.00 and maybe a bit of shipping, you'd have your front wheel locked in place and it would not be very much "engineering" for you have to do since you've got lots of other points of interest you're dealing with on this project.

Now, I drive on, the front wheel hits the overcenter chock and, flips it forward to lock the front wheel against the factory stop.

That intern, holds the bike completely straight up and down, with no assistance needed. I can then get off and do all my tie down work. Hydralift sells, as an option, that same kind of over center chock but, at twice the price of the replacement one for my Condor. So, guess which one I used....
When I got my Hydralift installed, they asked if I wanted the built-in chock option and/or the extension arms. I told them about my bike and they said I'd likely want those two options. I'm glad I got them because I can ride my bike up onto the lift and get the front tire into the chock and that butts it into the front holding bracket. I can then get off the bike, which is fairly stable at this point, attach the tie-downs and get things secured without assistance. The extension arms allow a more forward oriented tie-down position. I use those for tying down the front of the bike and on the rear I pull the frame itself down into the lift platform with tie-downs. Have taken the bike thousands of miles this way trouble free.

Maybe when you got your Hydralift these options were not available?
