Howdo Paul....yes indeed...very apt.....Have you put in for a "private display" at the Mcr Bike show yet?.....I'm geared up for taking 2 2-strokes down for the weekend and snaking in to the event under the guise of the "UK 2-strokes forum" as at present....So should hopefully have the odd spare ticket if you fancy a walk about one of the 2 days........


Hi Steve, yes I have put in for a private entry at MCR Bike Show. going to have a dummy run to try loading it into my van soon, but knees very dodgy at the moment. May be asking for your assistance with it at the show!

Either way I'm fine with Paul....assisting with loading or just driving and wandering around the place.......Which bike would you be favouring to take down?...900ss for the DucatiOwnersClub Stand....or a Bim for the private entry stand? Do you have any of the packing crate stands for your bims? If not I could lend you a through axle stand....there a lot more stable in the back of a van than on a sidestand....or even one with "pins" to fit the concentrics like on the DB1.......
Oh...I'll be needing my alloy bar concentric adjusters back sometime to adjust DB2 chain....and also the chinky Chinese Chain splitter in red box (methinks I spied that still on your kitchen workstop recently)...as I'm fitting a new chain to my sons DT125R....been a year now since I got it...fresh 2nd Mot this week and only a further 300Kms "test riding" since I bought it....teehee...so fair to say its running right

Thanks Steve, your help is always greatly appreciated. Likely to be taking the DB1 and I do have the original crate stands for all my Bimotas.
Your chain splitter and concentric tool are safe.

Thought so......BimotaClassicParts have the original packing stands and long rods which have a circular stop plate welded on one end...and a 4mm dia drilled hole on the other end to accept a 3.85mm dia R clip......I know though that packing crate stands differed between bikes on length/width......and doubt that Paulo would sell the rods on their own so get one made up....all you need is a length of steel solid rod of 12mm dia to go through the drilled holes which on my stands are 13mm dia (again check hole size of holed spindle on your bike....)....DIY stores in UK sell lengths of steel rod of various diameter....or even threaded rods......put a nut on one end...and drill for an R clip on the other...my "rod"...if you excuse me....is 41cms long...with the drilled hole at 40.0 cms....from inside of round welded end stop to centre of hole........................Darn it......I've just gone and burnt my croissants in the oven....that'll teach me to try and multi-task early in the morning.......


Steve, sorry about your croissants. Hope my question did not cause too much disruption in your morning routine Rolling Eyes Wink

I measured the openings on the stand loops and the opening at the bike rear hub - 13mm as you pointed out. I tried to upload picture of the stand but with the photobucket no longer an option, the best I can do is google photo link:

As you can see, the stand is quite crusty and needs some TLC. It didn't come originally with the Dieci, got it almost by chance. I'll price out powder coating, but not really planning to use it on the paved surface now that I got the Bimota mat Laughing

No worries...I still ate the croissants....although crusty like your stand....shattered upon impact with gnashers...but eaten anyhoos....

Grit blasting by either a powder coater or stove enameller will clear up most crust to like new....powder coating may be more foregiving as they can layer it thicker when spraying and fill in any pock marks leaving the final surfaces flat...and normally colour choices are many also.....Here in the UK they wouldn't charge more than say 30-40 all in for grit blasting and powder coating in complete one stop shop...I've had amazing results from powder coaters

spoke to a powder coating company, initial estimate based on my description of the stand is $120 in black. Red will be more. Will be dropping off the stand to them this week. The stand would look cool with my Bimota mat and the soft surface will prevent it from chipping. I have already posted the "before" pics, will post "after" once its done...

How much??????????????????????????????.......I take it you've never had anything powder coated before....and yup....I isn't in America....but powder coaters in the UK are famed for "having your pants down" if you are a newbie....in the UK that would be 40 TOPS!!!!!!!...and that would be for a special colour that would be lacquered.

To give you an indication when I had the Ducati 900ss pup done....when I went down to my usual gaff...there was a bloke there, well dressed and smart car......with a pair of clip-ons...and he said "how much?"....filthy powder coater bloke said 45 seem OK?...he stammered and said...Oh yes...fine

I had the trellis frame on the 900ss shot blasted, baked, emery cloth rubbed down, washed, coated and then baked...all in white...the clip ons and headlight frame done in black and the 2 No. crankcases...which were acid dipped first to stop damage to the faces...and the 4 no valve colours done in special silver...the 2 No. wheels masked off and coated white...and the spring done in yellow...Total cost...and that was 3 separate colours...130......

2Bims, I'll never argue against a lower price. One must realize that in Kommiefornia, any business that deals with applying chemicals (body shops, powder coating, etc, etc) is very tightly regulated. It's to the point so that I don't think there are any auto chrome plating business left in the Los Angeles area. Maybe in Arizona or Nevada this same operation would cost half as much.

Oh yeh....I was forgetting where you reside......I have to say a lot of places here in the UK have closed down...but for a different reason....being a teeny tiny country the businesses occupied large spaces where the land became more valuable than the business....and the owners of the land cashed in and sold to supermarket chains in one case....or house builders in another case...I used to have the choice of 5 places...but its down to just one locally now.....I have to say...the Health and Safety side and emissions is still largely ignored in the workplace in these areas.....Its not a job I'd do...the operatives look like a negative version of a panda....white eyes from goggles and black everywhere else
