Since my new Shovel is missing a center stand and im a cheap Old Fart.
I made a stand for my bike today.

Took some old junk steel pipes. Made a rektangulat piece around 20cm high.


needed a short pipe with a half inch hole, and found the broken Volvo steering box (dont throw anything away) ;-)


Tacked the lever mount in place first.


Added a piece of steel as a gusset, and welded everything properly.


Rear wheel up in the air :rolleyes:. Now i can work on my bike from both sides, I will add a piece of water hose on the upper bar do save the paint on the frame, when i get it refreshed.


Saved me 40$, and i got the satifaction of doing someting myself :D

Its called the shark, and i used by all plumbers in Sweden.

My Brother and oldest son is plumbers, so i have a couple of them, and they open wide so it's a a good monkey wrench ;-)

The blue pipes are steel water pipes, so i got them free...
