These revolutionary motorcycle stands allow motorcycles to be easily wheeled around your garage or workshop for easy parking.
The “dynamoto“ stands are the work of Brisbane mechanical engineer Stuart Black and designer Stephen McGuiness who are looking for $30,000 seed funding from a community Kickstarter program to take their invention into series production.
“We’ve been working on these products and related other motorcycle/scooter products for about two years part time” Stuart says.
While there have been other similar products, this motorcycle stand system is better for a number of reasons.
Rather than conventional swivel casters, they use Australian-designed and manufactured omni-directional Rotacaster wheels.
The special casters make a 200kg+ bike easy to push or pull in any direction and the large wheels easily roll over concrete expansion joints or cracks.
There are two rear stands: One type (in either left hand or right hand version) will fit bikes with a single-sided swingarm and a hollow rear axle.
The other rear stand suits bikes with a conventional swingarm and pickup spools.
The revolutionary but simple front stand is unlike anything else on the market, and will suit all road-going bikes with 17” or 19” wheels.
Both the rear stands have a unique anti-tipping device that stops it being inadvertently tipped forward and unloading when manoeuvring the bike (or perhaps even by a child when the bike is unattended).
Another unique feature is the outrigger on the right hand side of the double-sided swingarm stand has a closed loop which means you don’t have to balance the bike with one hand while aligning the stand with the other.
