Oh no! That puts my bike right on the epicentre
(September 81 build)

If the stand mounting bracket (welded to the frame) is the same, and in the same position on bikes of the surrounding year or so, it can only come down to how long the stand is? Which would come down to how high the front wheel comes off the ground when the bike is on the c/stand?
On a level surface, my front wheel is about 70mm off the ground.
