Made myself a rear stand....

hey everyone...
I have been really motivated about learning to weld, and i really like to fabricate things. So for a project i decided to make a rear stand because its a great tool to have, and extremely useful. Originally my buddy had a stand that i was thinking about buying one online but i said hell with it, since i have some materials and one of the best tig machines at my disposal at work, ill make one. Plus i didnt feel like spending the money because I have been laying out money for the 929/954 swap.
well here is a pic. because it seems i already uploaded some other but i cant do anymore.... could someone explain why??
well enhoy this pic....

Re: Made myself a rear stand....

Looks pretty good. I finished two welding classes heading towards my certification (7 more to go) prior to being "employed for the summer". I was supposed to take my first of 3 TiG classes this summer but looks like I'll have to wait until fall.

PM davef for powdercoating. He's done a bunch of stuff for guys on this site. He should be on his way back from Grattan tomorrow so it'll probably be a day or two before he responds.

PS Just kidding Conq, it was the best $20 I've ever spent.

Re: Made myself a rear stand....

Hi All,
Just got a 1998 CBR900. Haven't even ridden it yet (snow). I made a paddock stand for it yesterday and wanted to share the results. I used 1" 316 stainless steel sched 40 pipe since it is so easy to weld and polishes up nicely. I got a shop to bend the hoop (swapped a 6-pack). They could only do a 12" bend radius so I used a hydraulic car jack to bend the ends outward to the 13.5" spacing. Wheels are off some old rollerblades. I may modify it later if I add spools to the swingarm. I have attached a pic and pdf drawing I made for anyone who might need a winter project. I can post pics and details of the construction if anyone wants. Took about 4 hours total. Enjoy. Cam.

ps. going to build a front stand next

Mod away! I still may have to add a top gusset if it shows signs of bending. I added the bottom gusset on the short section by the wheels since it started to bend there a bit. The pipe is unbelieveably strong yet the weight of the bike combined with the torque of pushing down on the handle was too much at that extreme angle. I was suprised since my calcs said it would be ok. Mounting the hoop lower and angling the main supports back a bit might be better. The 13 degree back angle is just about right - nice and stable. Once I design the front stand it should be easy to mod it for a yamaha. The steering stem pin will be different and maybe the height a bit but the rest should work. Cam.
