    Is it something that is available? More details please. Yes it looks heavy duty. Only time will tell if it is as good as it looks.

    I don't know what bike the stand is for you posted but when I look at the site they have a few things that fit R80GS and R100GS so I think this means they have nothing for my R90. They do not have this stand for any Airhead. That stand fits an Oil Head or something. Or what does it fit? I couldn't find it on the Web site so I don't know what bike it's made for.

    I have one on my R100GS got it earlier this year. Use the contact page on his website. Fits well, very well made and fully adjustable

    Yes I am.

    Just received the stand... Are you positive this will fit a -85 80G/S?
    Thank you.

    Just spent an hour to install it.... 3/4 was on removing the stock stand... It goes on smoothly once it becomes evident where it goes... Not at the stock place but on the second engine stay... Just lost a 6mm allen socket... Rolled out the garage and in the sewage opening in the street...[​IMG]
    The stock position... Empty now!

    Fixed in position

    Bike resting on it (adjustable).

    No more fumbling under the jug to get it down and choice of 2 spring positions auto return à la BMW or staying jn position.

    And the stand length is adjustable via the nut above the foot pad.

    I have been using one of these for years on my 1986 g/s, its a fantastic piece of engineering and works brilliantly.

    Just sent an inquiry... since none of you all are posting a price I asked for it and shipping to SoCal.

    No bucket of money lying around my place so it's important to me.
    :D

    wow that was a fast reply...
    Hi
    I have a few left.
    They are 250 euros incl. p&p to the US.
    You can pay via PayPal with GIFT OPTION to lesgim@gmail.com
    Best regards,
    Migsel

    250 Euro equals 329.62 US Dollar Which is to say I don't have a bucket that big.

    The design of that stand lends itself to being machining intensive. Plus, the dollar has tanked to the the euro often as of lately.

    Most probably one should be careful if they have a business and recommend that payment for a product or service is done via the 'GIFT OPTION'. PayPal is not one that likes to be in the charity business or give away free service.
