sooo guess what i found out my neighbor haddd..... thanks dad!
Photo
gonna talk to him in the morning about it, probably gonna get it cheappp
so I went to Harbor freight and got this!
Photo
got it and a free magnitic parts tray with a 20% off cupond...

just need some wood, and some screws, and some 3/4" pipe, and some basic tools, and I'll have a nice little repair stand i put together for about 30 bucks, I'll post pics as i go. I have been kiking around this idea for awhile, now but the vertical pipe woulda made it closer to 60 bucks just using plumming parts like people do... this is much cheaper... or wood but not as strong... this looks allot stronger. and my neighbor has more of these things too! even an x-base one.... i might ask to mix and match, i like that foot rest thing for like shop rags, or he has one thats like a mid heigh idk i'll take measurments of it, im afride of the pedal hitting it, cut it sticks out kinda far...

basic idea...

maybe Santa will bring you a weight set for Christmas so you can beef up?

for your education oh young-an... This is the base to a tall pedestal table, a commercial one like you might find at a sports bar or a red robin, or a TGI-fridays.

I'm not gonna argue with the dicksood right now.

Anyway, i had a legit one of those stands years ago with a tool tray and it came in quite handy. ended up with a rust hole that left it severely compromised so i scrapped it. Hopefully this works for ya though. On paper the idea looks like it will work out just fine

I'm on the vital legit list!

yeah, I've seen allot of videos on youtube about DIY bike stands, the most solid looking ones use a pipe clamp like the one i bought.... and also I'm used to using this monster at work so working on the floor is annoying to me...

That i have seen is people rigging the vertical part and the elbow for the arm wallmounts, wood, old pipes ya know.

Man, good for you. Making stuff yourself always feels amazing when it is done and turns out. I thought about making my own bike stand as well seeing as I am making my own ramps and shit lately. Why spend tons of money on a park stand when you can make it yourself for waaaay cheaper? lol

Oh! i bought the base pictured for 25 off him, and He gave me this!
Photo

thats not the exact bike but the same model, Not worth it to me to fix and try and sell.... BUT I did give it to a rider friend who fell on hard times and has no car and no bike and no job now, so at least its a way for him to get around I know he can fix it up. The hubs were still moving, and the bottom brackett was still moving, rough kinda but moving still tight... no real rust anywhere... just needs some tlc, new tires(MAYBE) tubes, and a chain, and allota grease, tri-flow, simple green, and navel jelly....

had a legit Odyssey gyro 2 on it too wink thats what caught my eye, when i started lookin at the thing.

We might not agree on gyro/rotor age wink but i do like your hands on approach, rent a small mig welder for the day, weld a decent bar and bench vice to it and you will have a piece that will outlive us.
