Homemade Lift Stand
Posted January 20, 2005 - 02:58 AM
The only thing left to do is make a device so when I ilft the bike up it automatically locks the stand in the raised position.
Total cost was less than $AU5 as I got all the ally from various scrap bins at customers jobsites (I fix welders for a living) and zapped it up when I had a bit of spare time (thats why it took 6 months)

I also made mine from steel. I finally found the link to the plan I used on the net to build one. You have to adjust the height of the stand for your bike so the stand slide be under the frame in the collapsed position.
Here is the link :
I hope it works,

I did most of the alloy welding on my stand with a mig.
I just bought the materials for this ( http://justkdx.dirtr...t/footlift.html
) stand yesturday. Anybody got any tips following their construction. I like the alluminum stand, but I only have access to a MIG welder, so back to steel is real.
Just change the wire to alloy and change the gas to argon instead of argoshield and away you go. If it's only a small single phase welder you'll need to turn it up flat out.
