Home made front wheel stand?
« on: May 06, 2019, 09:33:46 PM »
Anyone had a go at making one? Just thinking of stability whilst both wheels are off the bike having new tyres fitted,....I don't fancy using a jack/block of wood under the exhaust for support.

I did find this one, pipe fittings anyone? :008:

Yes I have a lathe but rather than make another 'axle' I prefer the idea of supporting the bike from the bottom of the forks so no juggling with axles and axle stands would be involved. :002:

This is what I made from the pieces of scrap I could lay my hands on, certainly not perfect but it worked fine. :002:

I made this one a few years ago when I bought my Sprint and realized the Harbor Freight jack I had was rendered useless. This one is very sturdy and stable and works great on the Trophy; I use two ratchet straps down around yoke/triple tree to lift it up. Get the black pipe at Home Depot and not only will they cut it to size, but they'll thread it too. Not quite a stand, but it does the job to get the front end up and off the ground.
