I searched but could not find a source or plan for a 45 motorcycle WORK stand.
I was going to build one but thought I would inquire here first.
Does anyone have any ideas?
I am ready to start putting my bike together after painting.
It's stripped down to the frame.

My regular stand wont hold her steady.
Maybe an adapter?

The Armored School Handbook has plans for a tilt bench like this:

Myself, I always resorted to two Toyota scissor jacks, under the front footboard shaft.

Cotton, I have the book for the plans but never saw one built. It looks cool, unfortunately I have no wheels on the bike and don't plan on putting them on until I get the motor trans and harness installed.

Ohio, love the simplicity, The jack to push it up just enough to pull the rod and down she comes.
Nothing is in the way, my kids won't knock it over, and i have the jack.

foot boards will go on last.

Thanks guys

Too home depot I go.

Seems like those plans were online at one time. Does anyone know if they are still up and if so where?

I sent emails to Brendan and Dusty Dave offering to email them the plans,so far no reply.
Maybe their spam filters got them,or maybe they think as I'm UK based I'm a scammer. :(
The reason I asked for an email return is,I can send an email through this forum,but don't see the email address.
By emailing,they see my email address first as a matter of trust.
The plans are all scaned and ready to go if they want them. :wink:
