    Inexpensive rear stand

    Picked up this stand today at good old Princess Auto.
    I know they're intended to be utilized with spools mounted on the bike's swingarm but as good fortune would have it the dimensions allow for this to work (1/2" tire-to-floor clearance) :

    With the acquisition of this bike my poor car has been feeling neglected. I'd better take her somewhere special soon.

    I know that this aluminum stand is also available at Harbor Freight Tools, and it can be had for $39. Their steel stand is taller, and can be $29. Just an fyi in a stand thread.

    That's a neat stand but I don't get why a person would buy one other then used to oil a chain. You can't use it to tighten a chain or to remove the rear wheel. I don't have the room for items that are not more versatile.
    That's a sharp Mustang you have there and I know what your talking about. Since I bought my TW I have lost the passion for my other hobbies. I didn't bay rockfish at all this year. When I heard the crabs were running I didn't get my crabbing boat out. Deer season opened on the 11th and I haven't been hunting. I just want to ride my TW.

    Good for checking oil level and also standing straight upright so you can park it right up against a wall.

    Thanks
    On a bike equipped with the proper spools the rear axel would be free of obstruction and adjustments to the wheel and chain would be possible. If I turn the supports around and place the square pegs under the swingarm it leaves the axel accessible but doesn't *quite* raise the tire free of the floor. I'm thinking of somehow adding to the diameter of the square pegs to gain the needed height

    I too like cheap things...

    It seemed like a good idea at the time, and while it does indeed function just fine, getting it into place is surprisingly difficult.

    Build a ramp to elevate the rear tire. When the stand is in place just roll the tire off the high point of the ramp.

    A neighbor a couple of blocks over that passed away had a TW and one of these stands and I ended up with it. If I had known how easy it made things I would have bought one a long time ago. Anyway, he set it up as shown in the pictures and I have not changed a thing. The stand seems strong enough though at first I was concerned about that 1/4" X 1/4" piece of metal holding the weight and not bending. So far all has worked well.

    And plenty of room for the back tire to spin freely. ( Or maybe "barely enough room for the rear tire to spin freely".)
