Pics of stands and sliders

So I'm a cheap/broke ass and want to make my own stands and maybe... maybe sliders. Depending on my abilities and lack of machining skills. But I'm having trouble finding pictures of any sliders on the bike and dimensions of the stands. I've also never owned a stand and know how they work in theory but not really sure what to look out for in design. Seems simple, maybe I'm overlooking it.

Gee, you guys in The States have what appears to be the best MV stand in the world and that is (to me) the single-arm Pit Bull. We can't get them in UK (without paying a heap in freight and duty).

Surely it would be cheaper and more effective to purchase, even second hand, one of those? Given the cost of materials and time, AND the prospect of a possible mishap with your bike, that seems the most effective option to me. (Just saying)

Fellow cheapskate here. I welded up my own stand from 1” box steel. My design was basically a copy of the abba stand, that secures the bike via the swing arm attachment bolt.

Check out this thread for the sliders: https://www.mvagusta.net/forum/13-br...13-1090rr.html Hopefully you can get an idea on the designs available.

I went with R&G, they look as part of design yet have good dimensions.

With side stands, I would follow Nigel's advise and see if you can source a used one.

Download an app called OfferUp and another called LetGo. Check there, along with craigslist. Yesterday I managed to pick up an original MV rear stand for $70 and a front aftermarket stand for $40.

What Niglerb & Skrekov said. The PitBull stands are as good as it gets. I see 8 on Craigslist in my area. Even one of the single sided stands ($100). It has a Triumph pin, but that can be swapped in seconds.

Thanks for the replies I've been busy and haven't had a chance to check out the suggestions yet plus this bike had almost drove me mad so I had to step away for a bit.

Thumbs up rear stand?

I prefer the T-Rex stand over the PitBull;
reversible handle
padded bar to lock the rear wheel (I use a tie down)
lockable to the axle so you can warm it up in gear
costs less
I have 2 MVs and 4 F&G stands 2 front 2 rear
And one T-Rex

And before some smart ass comments about the chickenstrips.......
The tires are 9 1/2 years old.....and slippery than owl snot

Great looking and functional stand, Noel. I've just emailed T-Rex about UK delivery.

We can't get such good stuff in UK. I tried Pit Bull recently, and as we've discussed in other threads, international shipping near doubles the total cost. I especially like these stands with the front-facing arm because of its 'out-of-the-way' benefits when storing the bike. Maybe I'll just have to bite the bullet and cough up the shipping and customs costs.

Only last week I paid $US90.00 in customs for Chinese fairings for one of my Blades. Damn expensive hobby these bikes!
