Front stand

Postby RoyOevreboe » Fri Jan 01, 2021 12:01 pm

I have a front stand for sale. It has been blasted and painted and looks like new. It was mounted on my Sq4 MK1 1952.
But I am not sure what bike it should fit.
Please make me a offer.
Regards
Roy

This type of front stand was fitted in the 1948/49/50 era, certainly to Square Fours. I had one on my 1948 4G and there is a photo in "Square Forum" of a brand new 1948 4G, agin fitted with this front stand. I don't know whether they were fitted to other models at the time or whether perhaps they were just used on the Squares to reduce the danger of these heavier bikes falling over.

Unless you have a centre stand I don't know how you safely get a bike onto the front stand. Useful if you aren't using the bike for an extended period to save the tyre from suffering "flat tyre death" Nev.

That stand looks to be exactly, except for the colour, like the one on my 1950 NG which I believe to be original to the bike. The measurements correspond too.
1946 4G, 1950 NG and 1951 VH
