Is it something that is available? More details please. Yes it looks heavy duty. Only time will tell if it is as good as it looks.

I don't know what bike the stand is for you posted but when I look at the site they have a few things that fit R80GS and R100GS so I think this means they have nothing for my R90. They do not have this stand for any Airhead. That stand fits an Oil Head or something. Or what does it fit? I couldn't find it on the Web site so I don't know what bike it's made for.

Fits R100GS

I have one on my R100GS got it earlier this year. Use the contact page on his website. Fits well, very well made and fully adjustable

Are you sure these stands are not for airheads? Just because its not in print doesn't mean they don't exist... send an email....

Answer from Migsel:

Yes I am.
What is the problem?

Just received the stand... Are you positive this will fit a -85 80G/S?
Thank you.

I'll bet that clamps to the frame. I would like to see it attached though ...

Just spent an hour to install it.... 3/4 was on removing the stock stand... It goes on smoothly once it becomes evident where it goes... Not at the stock place but on the second engine stay... Just lost a 6mm allen socket... Rolled out the garage and in the sewage opening in the street...
The stock position... Empty now!


Fixed in position


Bike resting on it (adjustable).

No more fumbling under the jug to get it down and choice of 2 spring positions auto return la BMW or staying jn position.

And the stand length is adjustable via the nut above the foot pad.
