Made a small centerstand-mounted stand

Here in Montréal, the weather is getting quite cold, so I am setting up for a big winter tune-up on my 919. I was inspired by the phobman stand and decided to weld up a design of my own.

Here are some pictures.





Very stable. I am quite happy with the design !

Awesome! Got any pics of the stand by itself?
Nice workshop. Any reason for the checkerplate on the floor under the bike?

Let me pull up pictures of when I had it on the welding table !

As for the checker-plate on the floor, it is made out of rubber and has definitively saved my ass a dozen times with spills, oils, grease, grime and coolant. Its way easier to clean than on the concrete itself !

Bought it at Costco a while back, I have them scattered around under the tractor and other tools.

Ahh rubber then. Makes sense. I thought it was steel. Well then I want me some of that. I'm using old vinyl floor lay but its a bit thin.

Here are the pictures on the table.

I will get a proper 5/8 Pin with a rubber handle on it to make it official.

After the work this winter, I will paint it with some Farm Implement paint.

Simple and strong. Do jack the bike up to get it under?
Again great workshop. I think I see a couch and a TV controller! And a boat.

Thank you !

Yeah my father and I work hard to keep things clean and organized. Can't say we watch a lot of TV though ! The couch is a recent addition.

Yes that’s how I do it. A cheap rear pit stand rested on the very end of the swingarm to provide maximum lift. I slide the stand under the bike, slide the pin in and remove the pit stand.

I don't have enough tubing to make another one unfortunately.
