C12 main stand with arm
« on: October 08, 2017, 08:59:46 pm »
After years of struggling to put my 1956 c12 onto its centre stand, I am welding an arm onto the stand this is my first effort any comments welcome.
Thanks Kev.

Looks very useful for securing the stand while lifting Kev. Two thoughts though.
Look at the Triumph 350/500 stand. It has the extension peg and a roll on foot; where your weight on the peg assists with lifting of the bike.
Also a lifting handle below the saddle & towards the centre of the bike would be most useful. I might look into that when I reassemble the rear mudguard on mine.
I'll see if I can post a photo of my T90 stand tomorrow.

Yes, I think it needs a much wider and backward-pointing S bend in it to get the extra leverage and also to help with the enthusiastic left hand cornering!

at least that will clear the road when going round a corner - the modified c12 one looks like it will dig in :o :o
