Here's a link I found today to a sturdy motorcycle stand you can whack out in a coupla hours or an easy arvo with basic tools.

Return of the Cafe Racers Stand

You will note after the article there's a download page for the plans, and if you like to take things further, a metal tyre stop for the front end.

Can't ask there because the original is locked, but how do I get my bike on and off the stand?

You can get folding aluminum ramps these days for $60.  You'd probably need two people to push it up.

But it wouldn't work with any of your bikes anyway .75, it's for cafe racers.  I think with the shortened rear end and clip-ons of the cafe's you just throw the bike up much like would a motocross bike.  Just a guess anyway.   Smile

There's a aluminium ramp pictured up against the wall in one of the images. It's certainly sturdy enough for a 500-plus pound machine, and you get to make it as long as you need it to be. My mate Bob uses one he built from timber for his workshop. A customer's Moto Guzzi Eldorado Winter resto project is currently parked on it. He, like me, uses a Harbor Freight foot pump workstation lift for bikes requiring more immediate attention.

And getting it off is real easy. Very Happy

You use a chain hoist attached to a beam trolley. Laughing

I was interested to read the wiring article elsewhere in the link.

There is a useful table provided at the end 

https://www.returnofthecaferacers.com/building-a-cafe-racer/5-motorcycle-wiring-mistakes/

Note the address "return of..." - had they gone away?

There is also a pic of a young fella leaning lovingly over cafe racer (his? probably not) with... you guessed it ... obligatory hipster beard ... wearing disposable shoes covers! 

Possibly safe to assume HE doesn't ride the bike in the rain. Very likely he doesn't ride the bike ... or any bike

Cynical

Charlie, that looks a lot like mine, a pile of 2x10 cutoffs scrounged from a construction site.  The top piece has a hole drilled in it to accommodate the oil drain plug.

ah !!  the drain plug ,,, must be the deluxe model …. giggles

I have left over material ...which I may have to fashion a 2" hole for that mate ….smile

in all seriousness  we have seen a few designs for a bike lift - type bike stand  using just a piece of timber to lever the whole assembly up a foot or so by pivot method

now I have a shed of sorts ill be looking for that design again in the coming months , as the project bike is completed ill have to get into Gerty and replace her rattly output shaft , and a bit of height sounds like a bonus during pull down

Perhaps the area is considered a crime scene.

Since I recently hurt my right foot I bought one of these for $55 on Ebay for doing upright maintenance until I can use a center stand again.  I can also use my MC trailer as a bike stand if I want to swap center stands or whatever.
