I've got an old clamp type side stand which I'd like to fit to my Bantam D1.

I do remember when I was younger I used to have trouble with these, always slipping a bit in use, despite being clamped up. But for me, I find side stands really useful when parking up.

Perhaps someone's come up with a cunning a solution to stopping this happening? Perhaps some kind of modern material to put between clamp and frame which grips like b*ggery? Thanks.

And for getting on and off, too, I reckon - providing you get on and off from the same side as the stand.

Ah I didn't know that. How would I 'pin' it. Is it a drilling a small hole and tapping a thread for a bolt to go through stand clamp and into frame?

I chickened out of drilling hole in frame. Instead I ordered a very cheap flux cored mig welder on black Friday .  Plan is to put just a few weld spots to frame and clamp over those for grip. If it slips on those I'll weld it on proper. Quite looking forward to playing with welder, I should be able to build up the stops on the main stand too.

Nice house by the way 🙂
