Yes, that's the one I've got. I've got a tie wrap holding the long arm of the spring loosely around the stand - it came off the spring 'mushroom' once. Fortunately I noticed it before any harm was done.

I'm a bit wary of that stand, do you find it OK?

Yes I find it works OK. As long the ground is flat. I made a spacer to fit inside the large hole of the stand so the spring cup locks up solid on that. .the spacers is a few thou longer than the width of the stand to let the stand move freely but not flop about, And made it so when you push the stand all the way down it locks in place instead of springing back.

Ah, that sounds interesting. I'll have a look at mine and see if it can be improved.

Not sure what you mean by this?

Do you have to keep your foot on the stand until you lean the bike on it? Otherwise it springs back up if you don't?

Yes mine does, how did you make it stay down? Or does yours stay down simply because its better located on the spacer?

A safety feature so that you can't ride way with it down? Perhaps arrange the geometry so it's 'hair trigger'?

It is better located with the spacer that's for sure. I also put a notch on the back of the stand. The flat bit and a bit on the stand lug for the notch to ingauge into. Keeping the stand down without the need of your foot. A bit of a push with your foot moves it off and the spring then returns the stand up.

The spacers makes the stand alot for secure and sturdy, I was not impressed or had much faith with it how it was and thought I could do better.

Like the close ups of vintage crud, Steve. Don’t like the look of the later stand. Looks more like a golf tee than something that supports a three hundred pound machine leaned on it’s side.
Adrie’s idea of creating a mount extension so that both rails are picked up sounds good.
Thanks to all.
