I took some extra mounting brackets from a motor kit and a spare front tire hub. With a jack stand.
Take an extra handlebar grip and wrap it around the hub. Then sandwich the hub between the brackets, Sew or bolt to workbench.. I used a jack stand to elevate the rear tire.. The jack stand doesn't get in the way of turning the crank when working on the bike....Cheap and practical...
