    Homemade front wheel stand

    Yesterday I helped my son-in-law replace the front tire on his 100K+ mile 1986 Honda VFR700FII. I thought you might be interested in seeing his homemade front wheel stand. I thought it was kind of creative and a lot cheaper than buying any steel manufactured stand. I was impressed how well it worked. We got the wheel removed, the tire replaced and the wheel reinstalled without any drama. (He was using a universal rear wheel stand to support the rear of the bike.)

    My daughter sent me another photo that she took of the wheel stand. It provides a little more detail showing how it was constructed. Note the 45 degree angle on the front horizontal arms that provide the leverage to lift the forks.
