Any way you can convert it to a diaper changing table?

Laugh Free Wooden Wall of Death

Free Wooden Wall of Death, but you might get hurt (just a little).

Wooden "wall of death" motordrome. 22 feet in diameter. 12 feet high. Made from 16 4x4 posts, 16 sheets of plywood, straps, braces and nails. Right now, it is assembled in a field. You'll need to take it apart. Probably won't go together again without a bunch of new wood and a lot of work. Includes a 1989 Suzuki DR100 that runs great but is a little beat up from a bunch of us trying to ride it around the inside of the wall. No paperwork on the bike. All free, but you need to take it apart and take everything out and leave the place clean of debris. Includes advice on how not to ride it. None of us could really do it and everyone got hurt at least a little.

The milk crate says "I buy the cheapest crap available to keep my bike running". At least with a $150 stand, there's a chance the guy doesn't mind spending some money to take care of the bike.

Maybe he had the choice to spend $150 on stand or care of bike and chose care of bike.

I have two of those crates. They're perfect for rattling around in the truck.

Funny how some things can turn people off from buying a bike. Kinda the same for me when I see a bike that was obviously washed 1 minute before taking the pictures...you know, when they're still dripping wet.

But to me dirt bikes and milk crate stands go hand in hand... hell, a bucket would probably work great too :lol Id rather spend the $150 on tires, gas and maintenance items...

I do very regular maintenance on my bike and used a 5 gallon paint can for years before I finally built a stand out of wood. I would rather put the money towards riding and gear than replaceing something that works great so it will look better in pictures.

I have one too. While not fancy, it actually works better than at least one or two of other the more expensive stands I've collected over the years...



Definitely worth $18 bucks, and far more impressive than the guy stacking the bike up on cinder blocks

Bultaco 250 for sale. Might be good, not sure of vintage (guessin late 1970s)
Found one on the web that looks like it called a '1979 BULTACO MK12 Pursang 250'
Or maybe an Alpina which is set up for dual sporting.

But I sure like the looks of that Alpina. Would be nice to have one just to putter on.
In case anybody is interested in the craigslist Bultaco here is a good thread from ADV on Alpinas:
