Thanks I'm very happy with the stand.
Why I used to count your traffic lights?   :whistle:
I did some service in the UN stationed just north of "Rosh Haniqra" (or some spelling like that) in Lebanon. My unit did two trips a week down to Tel Aviv doing some "house keeping". (stopped at banks, embasys and so on). Even got to meet with a very nice guy Yitzhak Rabin at a kibbutz not far from Ben Gurion. Some months I had over there very exiting.  :37:

Changed my rear tire, then oh no can't jack up front end to change front tire.  Go get on forum and low and behold, HR100, halfway around the world has figured out a neat jack.

Built mine out of 1-1/2" Chromoly tubing with 1" cross bar to slide through Versys frame.  Didn't make a breaker for leverage, so about to go test it and see if I can make it work without that addon.  Waiting for the welds to cool.

Thanks for the design work, I can do the tig part!

P.S.  Did have to use the breaker bar, no problem will make half moon and weld on to the end of the breaker bar so it will catch on bottom crossmember and not slip while lifting bike.

I just put a shoulder bolt in each of the threaded tube - like things that are under each side of the swing arm, they stick out about 2", I just leave them there and I made a Pit stand to fit. I will post some pics so you all can see :123A:

I apologize for necroing this, but I just had to say thanks to OP for designing this and posting his photos and schematic of the design here.
Thanks to him I decided to make my own stand and I'm very happy with it. I modified his design slightly though, to suit my personal taste.
Thanks a lot my friend, I owe you a beer!  :031:

I don't think HR is still reading this forum, so I'll say it - that is a very nicely made stand.   :020:

Did you do the welding yourself?

If anyone in the NE of England needs a similar stand I have one going for free. Obviously to heavy to post. Plus a front wheel roller.  :028:

Thanks mate! Some of it, yes. I started slowly but my welding skills are mediocre so my uncle (that I borrowed the welder from) took pity on me and helped me finish the job.  :008:
I never welded thin steel like that (used to weld a lot thicker material with large steel beams) so my uncle showed me the proper technique and now I'm certainly better at it.  :152:
Plus, having 2 sets of hands always makes things easier, beats having to use clamps to holds things in place.  :001:

Iíve just built one today, Iíll post photos when Iíve totally finished it but I can confirm itís works very well indeed and my welding skills are still shite!  :008:
Oh it also  looks very agricultural but it is very strong.
Iíve got a few bits to still do to it but for something thatís made totally from stuff I had lying about Iím really pleased with it...

Looking forward to the photos! Any day when you can save cash and make something on your own is a good day!  :008:
