First Video of Center Stand Operation

Ok, here's a video I made of the operation of my new Center Stand. Not the best video, but it will give you an idea of how it operates. I just bought a new video camera so I'll try and get some better shots later. As far as I can tell right now, it will work with hard bags mount also. Just a longer bolt. As a matter of fact, the whole centerstand bolts on with only 4 bolts, 2 spacers and about 15 minutes of your time. Pretty simple after all. It only took me 6 months of trying to come up with this!

The stand is about ready for production and I'm looking for a source right now. Any questions or comments can be sent to [email protected]. ( no jokes about the funny looking little fat man.)

The link takes me to an "upload" page, but no video.

Ok, let me see if I can correct this. Try it now and see if it runs for you.

Thanks

Anyone wanting to be notified of further development needs to send me their name,email address & phone number to be contacted in the future. Send the info to [email protected] and when I go into production and have a final price I can let you know.

Thanks for all the support on here. It's been a chore and I really have appreciated all of your encouragement.

PM sent with contact info.

Don, thanks for all of your tireless efforts on this. I hope you're able to find a good resource to help you take it to the next level of production.

Good luck with it.

Hey Don,

I saw your video, great work. I take it that you had another “epiphany”. You already have my name on your list for the stand. I have a couple of questions for you.

1) What did you think of the design software?

2) Does your final design still utilize a turnbuckle?

3) I have used Motowerks lowering kit on the back and lowered the front a little over 1 inch. If I cut off the necessary amount can I still use the stand?

4) What does it weight? That is definitely a concern to me and I would imagine to others as well. I am adding crash bars, tsukayu saddlebags, and top box already.

5) Price and availability of course?

Nice work Don. It's not for me but I sure do appreciate the work that you have put into this and am looking forward to seeing the production version.

Cheers,
Bob
