My mate has a similar issue with his 81. The original stand worked fine but cracked and buckled over the years. The replacement is slightly different but works well on later year machines so it would appear that the 81-82 machines had a unique main stand. I've just bought an 81 frame with a stand fitted so were going to put them side by side to see what the differences are.
