83 Interstate front stand

Postby bykerbiker » Mon Jan 28, 2013 12:02 pm



Hi as a new wing owner and just got access to the machine again, whilst checking underneath the bike I have found a very fancy chrome stand forward of the centre stand below front of the engine has it a special purpose ?. I haven't attempted to use it yet I have wondered has anyone else got such a stand ? and is it safe to use to support the bike . I've never seen a stand in this position before and I'm wary about using it.

it a nice addition got one on mine an like it . even in the grass it doesn't fall once you get use to using it its nice. its easier to put on that stand with every thing aired up then let the air out i have grand kids that crawl all over the bike until i catch them an shew them off an its nice when working on the bike to good luck

It's called a "ride off center stand". Just put the bike in gear and ride off of it. I have one on my 76.
