Workbench recommendations

Looking for a Workbench that I could clamp a vice on and ideally with a pegboard on the back for use when working on my bike. BIke would be in a separate stand. Anyone any suggestions where I could buy one or recommend one that they have ?
Don't particularly fancy making one myself as my DIY skills are limited.

    I Have this with a pegboard behind mounted to the wall, should take a vice I have a No3 Irwin to clean up an bolt on. ill have a check tonight make sure it down fit, if not theres a version that's a bit longer and will fit.

    Comes in kit form on a pallet ... workbench/

    I got a wooden one from Arbor Garden Solutions via their EBay shop. They do various sizes and can supply them with or without backboards.

    Really sturdy piece of kit that would definitely take a vice. Took and hour or two to put together but wasn't too difficult for anyone who can operate a screwdriver.

    Think the one I got was about 100 quid. Should last for years and looks pretty smart.

    This is the type of thing I got...

    I made a heavy duty one from a 9 foot long pallet that a load of major incident equiptment arrived on at work and a long piece of wood cut into 6 and nailed on with huuuge nails.

    Solid enough to hold an RGV 250 on while it's being worked on, cost nothing.

    If you want, nail a piece of hardboard to the top to fill in the gaps.
