Custom Centerstand

I had a itch that I needed to scratch so i built a center stand (early 04 so it did not have one).

Ya, I know that i could have purchased a premade one for ~135 bucks. its cold and wet outside so I have an excuse.

Next is pannier racks for Pelican 1550 cases.

Somewhere I have pictures of my KVR summer ride when I had a flat rear tire in penticton, bc. the bike is up on two big rocks with a 2×4 spanning the two to get the rear wheel off. that was the catalyst for solving the problem of being able to get the bike up and stable by myself. cool thing is that now I have an extra $135 for tires!
