Center Stand Dolly

Postby classicwinger » Sun Dec 09, 2012 10:51 pm



Does anyone now where I can buy a center stand dolly so I can move my 1200i around the garage? I can find them online from a site called legalspeeding.com but the cost seems excessive and shipping to Toronto is crazy expensive.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'm actually looking for the smaller center stand version.
Here is the link for the type of dolly I'm looking for:

Six 2.5" swivel casters from Big Orange, 24"x53" of 3/4" ply, glued a 1x6 for lamination at the caster attachment point.

Bit of a show getting it on the dolly, but it's only something that has to happen twice a year. If I was doing it again, I'd get bigger casters, but these'll work. Pulled the battery last weekend....grab the crashbars, and just pull the bike away from the wall, remove battery, and then simply push it back. Easy-peasy.
