Jburl, that's about 1/3 of the cost of the Strong arm. Is it pretty stable?

I had tried one of the Harbor Freight rear lifts with no luck, and I'm back on the hunt for a stand too. That ebay stand does look like a good option, especially when you add in the cost to ship one of the strong arms from England.

I have a similar one by CenterStand. I'm suprised to see they are asking a $119 list price now.

I found those guys too, but that ebay stand is still pretty competitively priced, aka downright cheap by comparison!

I really like that stand I bought. It's stable, and once I was used to it I've had no trouble getting the bike off the ground. It's a little unnerving the first couple of times lifting the bike off the side stand but it does the job really well. You can also adjust the height if you need a little more clearance but it picks my Bonnie up on the lowest setting without a problem. The arm is also removable so that it's not in the way while you are working on the bike.

I use the $20 one religiously, works great. Only jack I have for the bike. I may need to make a second one that is a bit taller for my bike, right now I need put a couple one-by boards under it. It's perfect as-is for wife's bike.

Really if you are at all interested in making one, you can get the materials, a circular say and a drill for what that metal one costs, and have enough left over for a case or two of beer. Plus, you'd get to buy tools.

But time is money and all, sometimes just spending the cash and buying something is better.

Steel Horse Fabrications

Quote "The Bonneville BRS 01
This is our new rear stand developed especially for the Triumph Bonneville. This stand will fit in between the stock exhaust pipes on all Bonneville models including the T100. Designed to lift from the bottom edge of the rear swing arm directly below the rear axle. Lift height is approx. 1.5 inches so lift effort is very minor.

Main chassis made from 1.25 inch steel tubing.
E-Z Lift geometery to make lifting a breeze.
4 wheels carry the load. Each wheel is 3 inches in diameter.
Swing arm rests on 3/4 inch rubber coated cold rolled steel pins.
Rivits on chassis bottom to prevent scratching.
Looped handle is made from 1 inch steel tubing.
Back braced for strength.
High gloss black powder coated finish." End Quote

This is a refrigerator/washing machine/dish washer/etc. stand.
It is worth aprox €1.
It's great for chain lubing or wheel cleaning. and it is portable.
All you have to do is park on it.
