Re: anyone built your own work stand?
Just built one. No photos but I'll take a few tonight and try to post them here asap. Relatively simple project if you're a welder and have access to some angle iron and steel pipe. I used two 15MM sockets welded to 1/2" all-thread to lift and support the rear wheel. It's adjustable for any width front/rear axle and heavy enough to hold a small to medium sized motorcycle. I wouldn't put full dress Harley up on it but it will easily and safely hold a bicycle for engine runs and test and tune of sprockets, chain etc. Took about two hours to fabricate and cost was under $5.00
