I used my 2002 Swing to commute 60 miles a day for about five years.  Now that I'm retired I mainly day trip with a bunch of guys from church.

A few days ago my front tire developed a big bulge in the tread. affraid  Luckily I was able to get it home in one piece.  My motorhead son can replace the tire if I can get the wheel off.  A friend lent me a jack but I can't see any hard points for lifting the bike. Ideas?

welcome   If you go to the upper left hand corner, you will see a search area. Enter "jack" and you will find several topics on the use of a jack . There are even pictures. I like pictures. You can also find help in the maintenance section for changing the tire.

Welcome to the site.

If you have a garage that your son can work in, here is one suggestion. You can put the scooter on the center stand. Attach a hook to the garage ceiling rafter and connect a ratchet-strap from the hook to the handle bars. It takes very little force to lift the front wheel off the ground while the scooter is on the centerstand.

I bought an 800 lb rated Harbor Freight electric hoist on sale for $99 a few years ago and use it to support the bike for projects like this.

Good luck and I hope that this helps.
