I just took a single 8ft 2"x12" and made 4 stands of all diff types for my cags...The wood helps absorb alot of vibrations while it runs.....I used 3" drywall screws and pre-drilled the holes and used liquid nail on the joints to keep them strong.....It roughly took me 15mins each to make

Hey CAM have u made one for a midbike? My x2 has no kickstand
My x1 still kept its kickstand but if you made the sides 4-6" higher on my design it would be a pretty good and strong rearwheel support stand..

A cheapo HomeDepot toolbox works great too if you have no lower fairing....

U have like 30 bikes LOL u should get a x12
30 bikes.........I think it may be closer to double that number...LOL

I wanted an X12 at one time and never found one around me for the right price or to my liking....seeings bodyparts n such is a tad harder to obtain and a bit more expensive I was a bit more meticulous with my purchase.....but no luck.....I had/have quite a bunch or different bikes and models aswell as doubles and triples of some of them and feel like I now may have too many especially when I spend alot of time moving bikes and bike parts to get to stuff I need...........LOL.

I had one about 5-6 years back with a semi-auto 4 speed..... I traded it for a 99 XR100 and owned it maybe a couple weeks.............

I was thinking that I may have too many and that I should keep only project machines aswell as some that hold sentimental value and should sell off the rest in one big megalot........That should save me mega loot in storage fees aswell as gives me back 4 sheds,,half my attic,,3/4 of my basement,,1/4 of my warehouse and then some back...LOL

I used 2 cag/Chinese pocketbike stands for my x18. I had to weld an extra piece of tubing and some wheels so i could roll the bike around when needed.

I get that alot and my neighbors are mostly anti-pocketbike....I care nothing of their dislikes for the loudness and what seems to them unsafe insanity of operation that makes up for fun for myself ;- which are on most of my bikes........LOL

The neighborhood kids love me though and a few beg me to sell them a bike for themselves now and again.....I tell them...;- craigslist........Im married to my own projects and cant be married to anyone elses.....

Anyone who has ever lent a hand to a neighbor or sold a bike you owned to them and had that neighbor knocking on your door for every little thing that pops up with these chinese bikes even after he was given the speel and was forewarned about what was gonna happen if they didnt upgrade n stuff.......Lets just say I really hated that moment........LOL

Yeah swheels' stands look sweet but not as sweet as that bike does..............

LOL I would of just said "I'm not available right now" that would really be annoying if a neighbor did the same. Just like if my friends Xbox gets red ringed they always beg me to do it for free, or if they want a rapid fire chip installed they beg me even more lol but do u ever race ur bikes?
