Default DIY Bike repair stand! (with pics)

Hey guys, so after working on my bike for hours, I realized how annoying and hard it was. So I decided to get a bike repair stand. Since all of them were a ton of money, I was able to go to home depot, and buy some pipe, and make my own for $65 with 9.75% tax.
I used a guide online, but will repost here with my own pictures.
I made my a tiny bit different, but do whatever works for you.

Also, if anybody follows the guide, after building it, you MUST make sure everything is tight. Or you might put the bike on, and the long pipe will just turn and your bike could fall off if you're not holding it.
Also, if your putting a motorized bike on, be careful with the CDI wire, and the gas tank nozzle and gas tube. It could squish them, so just put it on carefully, and there won't be any problems.
