Have never seen that one but Harbor Freight sells one almost identical. See below. I have this and it works quite well. Sold in two pieces, about $100 total.

I'm not sure. But it looks sturdier than the Harborfreight job. Let us know when you find out.

If that thing works well, it's worth a lot more than $100.

Every serious motorcyclist should be changing their own tires.

It looks like a Coats 220, about $850.

You still need to ballance them, so I just bring the wheel and the new tire to the shop and have them do both.

I'd use a machine like that for a small dirtbike though.

You can buy a static balancer pretty cheap. I've been changing mine for a couple years now without issue using just a basic manual changer and balancer.
