Default Make your own steering stem stand!! (Also questionable!)

Needed a steering stem stand for my upcoming new fork-age .. didn't wanna pay $180 for one.

Was on a late night run last night, found an abandoned upright shopping cart! Hmmm .. Idea!

Went back later, threw it in the back of the Saab, went to bed. This morning, I started cutting.



Did some looking online at other stands, came up with a little design of my own based on things I had in my garage.

Tacked this baby up.



Proof of concept: It holds steady, even when just tacked!





Just finished final welding, but I still want to add some further bracing. Pretty good for a few bucks worth of O/A and filler rod eh?

That's awesome. You could replace a couple of the wheels with casters that have brakes (like a toolbox).

ya thats true! I would use casters up front and actual bearings for the pivot if I had some on hand, but the goal of this project was to spend $0 so I want to stay on track!

Side effect benefit of keeping these wheels is that you can move the bike forward/backward from the rear stand with one person. Can't do that with a pitbull!!

+1 on getting wheels that have brakes....but now that theAndy is a 'certified' welder, might have to get him to go find a shopping cart.
