I hope to see a camel toe on a Bantam one day.

Mainly for extra spread on softer or unstable surfaces.

Easy enough to plagiarise, not that upstanding Bantam folk would dream of such a deed.   

Wotcha.

How much ?    You could get get the rest of the camel for that price.

From my experience in the Sinai in 1981, was offered 2 camels & 3 goats for my other `arf.

£36 is steep, but Chinese do a universal one for nearly 1/4 of that(but possibly also 1/4, aesthetics/functionality/quality...blah-blah..)...** Please log in to view **

Making such an item would be a nice easy little project for budding apprentice fabricators out there.

Here`s another possible candidate for adaption/adoption...** Please log in to view **

Or tuck a scrap piece of 6mm plywood in your pocket. 50mm x 50mm should do it.

Nice one, pennies.....and saves potentially uglifying the Bantam, where they look less in keeping than on a desert bike monstrosity.

Just remembered, I have a couple of those oval plastic pads they handed out at race meetings I attended 10yrs ago. Grippy serrated base & rim lip to stop stand foot sliding off the plastic.

Very tidy.

Tell me, have you added tubing sleeves to your centre stand feet...or some fete of engineering brilliance, creating a roller set-up to overcome the wear issue? Perhaps I`m thinking too far outside the box...and such a set-up would create an unstable parked bike?

What kind of strange interbred chicken has a paw ?

Anyway - I'm off to fit my "octopus tentacle" side stand - there's got to be a sucker joke in there somewhere.

A friend and myself went for a 50 mile ride purely to test our newly fitted side stands out, when we had a surprise visit from the Chief Bantam Inspector.
