http://www.harborfreight.com/motorcy...and-65620.html

Just picked one up at a retail store. Contemplated buying the other two they had and putting them on CL for $50.

I have that one - Works pretty good. Don't forget to tighten the screw knobs that hold the "arms" in when you're storing it. I've picked it up a few times not thinking about them and they fall out easily. Luckily they never hit anything but came close to my car's hood.

I was thinking that. Some custom arms to cradle the forks.

I'm going to buy 3 if they have them (2 for me, 1 for a buddy) and fab up some not-exact copies at work,



and make that Craigslist MONEY!

I've got an idea for fork adapters for these. I'll draw something up on AutoCAD tomorrow. I can make almost anything at work, I can even coat it in plastic. The swingarm adapters are plastic-coated.

I saw that, but I've got a better idea.

Does anyone know the width of the fork leg at the base?
