I haven't painted it yet and there will be no closeup shots of my welding skills  :5: It does however work even if you mistakenly weld the 45deg supports on the wrong side as shown in your plans.  :5: You also only really need one lockdown bolt if you happen to accidently weld into the threads of the other lockdown bolt   :whistle: . When you put the supports on the wrong side it will neccesitate having to remove about an 1.5" to get it to break over level with a hacksaw because you just used your last cutoff wheel.  :5: It does work great though.  :001:

 :020: Thnx for an gr8 idea and drawing! Just built mine from junk I found laying around in my old fathers garage  :7:
When I showed him the drawing he even welded i for me  :celebrate: Only one mistake, we welded the "pipe holders" with the lockdown on the wrong side at first, but hey, that was "easy" fixed.
 
So I guess I have one too... just tried it it is great! Want hesitate now to let my son sit on the bike. Before I had a bike with a "Central stand" on it but this Versys with the side stand doesnt let him sit on it so he has been pissed on me for a while now (3 years old). So, when he noticed my new stand he sad "dad will you let me sit on the bike now with the new stand?" Guess what... he was almost as happy as I am ;)
Picked up some "Kawa green" paint so I can cover our "almost prefect welding skills", after that I will post a picture. Thx again  :123A:

HR Industries wil not assume responsibility for any device that was not constructed exactly as specified... :002:

However, the design does have a lot of tolerance to suit a less-then-professional welders... :173:
so Baddone's model is approved.. :028:.(even though it is scratching the pavement when passed across under the bike...  :016:)

MeanGreen's is yet to be scrutinized... :013:

HR  :031:    :2:

Ok, here it is, green for obvious reasons. :biker1:
BTW HR... once upon a time I knew the exact count of traffic lights that had to passed when passing Haifa north or south, afraid I dont remember the record time to do it either... but so you now ;) Used to hang around there in 93-94.
