In celebration of finishing my D1 recommissioning, I have treated it to a side stand fitted to the pillion uprights using 2 stainless square washers from toolstation, (one corner cut off and 3 10mm holes), the washers are bolted through the pillion footrest at the top hole I drilled and clamped either side of the upright by the stand, corner cut off to clear the lower pillion upright bolt to frame lug.

the stand was filed very slightly on top in the middle with a half round file to allow the pillion footrest lug to seat flat, advance is it locates and holds the stand centrally

the stand is from a Yamaha TZR 250 and cost £25, I’m sure they can be had cheaper.

it is very stable on suitable ground

Nice job, I have a D3 plunger side stand, well it came off a plunger (not sure if it is a BSA extra or retro fit) it clamps on the bottom rail, trouble is it will interfere with the brake light switch, your seems to overcome that problem, well done it looks great!

Hi Larry

i have the same bolt on frame clamp side stand on an Ariel colt frame, they are a pain to set up and as you say get in the way, now I know this one fits I can cut some 5mm thick pillion footrest uprights to shape and include bolt holes for a side stand and do away with the washers in future.

once you’ve had the convenience of using a side stand it’s difficult to go without.

p.s I love the seat on your CESPEL 125, 

Bill

I was intrigued by Bills side stand so had a go myself (with some guidance from Bill) on my 1960 D1 plunger. It works well and is a less challenging alternative to heaving the bike onto its centre stand.
