Hello I am now in the process of re-engineering an Aftermarket universal which  was on the bike when I got IT some years back, I will make this side stand fit correctly to My 1954 dominator model88  by cutting the lugs off the aftermarket side stand   and making new lugs that fit the frame right and with a bit longer to bolt to the bottom stud bar on the engine plates by removing the stud bar and replacing it with a 3/8ths new one that's a inch longer  to bolt on the inside part of the new type clamp I am making  so the side stand will move anywhere or slip around the frame tube, and it will be made so it does not catch the inner chaincase,  Today I was round to out Local  Scrapman to find a nice length of 1.1/2 inch wide flat bar and a nice long  length of 3/8ths round bar witch I found among the scrap with a lump of concrete on the end of it witch I will cut off with my Black and Decker  Angle Grinder with a cutting discs on witch will give me a nice  length of round bar witch after  wire brushing it clean on the lathe I can then mesrure it up for the side stand  for the bit that sticks out for your foot to push the side stand down when you need it,  the other end of this round bar will serve as the same on the centre stand  As the old one had broken off,  So now To weld a new one on with a better shape  back on so two birds with one stone  to do,  the flat bar is to make the new type clap brakets for the side stand  and I weld up the univeral part of this side stand so its at the right angle So it then fits right,  It will be a lot better then the New side stands you can buy From ANL  witch to me are to expensive,  this one I am reengineering as cost me  3 pound fithy for the steel from the scrapman  and 15 pounds for cutting discs  and welding  and some work  and a few mugs of tea and cookies  and a far better job that will work better  and last longer,  So ANL you can keep your expensive Norton sidestand mate ,,!!!    Yours  Anna J

Good work Anna, Dare I say I’m using a Kawasaki bolt on side stand on my Navigator and ES2, easy to fit and remove, I think it was a tenner on eBay!

Hope you will post some pics when it's finished.

I would like to fit an additional side stand to the right side of my 99,this will allow parking when the camber is steep and allow me to use my good leg . Most of us will end up with a bad leg at some time and  sod's law says it will be the one most needed.  Anyone found a LH stand?.

I bought one of those Enfield stands mentioned above and modified it to fit an old Douglas I have and was really pleased with it, for £18 you cant go wrong.

Anna,

From your description it sounds as though the round bar is reinforcement for structural concrete.  If it's round it is low yield steel and isn't likely to be strong enough for use with your sidestand; I'd hate for the bolt to snap and your bike to fall over!

The stronger reinforcing bar (high yield) has a ribbed surface, so isn't much use for making bolts or studs.

To be fair... round mild steel bar is nice and ductile so if it is overloaded it will bend and not break, and it is relatively easy to weld. Probably as strong as the original  malleable iron castings.  Let's see pictures!

.. it was Anna who originally suggested the Kawasaki prop stand. I followed her advice and have an excellent item on my ES2 - cost around £12 in total with some bits from the scrap bin.

hello   this bit of round bar  it,s not  going to support any motorcycle  its just going to be cleaned and the shaped and then welded  on the Main stand and side stand to help  with putting the main stand or side stand  on the ground  then the bike can be  pulled back onto the main stand,  or the bike propped up  on the side stand its the bit of metal that sticks out  so the end of your foot and make contact with said  main stand or side stand, now do you understand    this part of its use,                                                   yours  anna j

Anna,

Just read your email too quickly and missed the bit where you say where it is to be used.  Perfectly OK for these toe extension pieces on the stands.

Have you ever made a side stand for a 1927 flat tank Norton?  I would like to find one that can be used to save having to hoist the machine onto the rear stand every time it's parked up.

Hello if  you can give me some measurement  I can make one from scratch. If you like and I like some photo s  yours  anna j
