    Rear Stand for Cafed 1978 R100RS

    Silly question...I would like to buy a rear stand as the original center stand was taken off of the bike. Will any basic rear stand work or do I need to be aware of anything? Should the rear stand's arms sit under the swingarm or can it hook under the axle?

    Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

    I have never seen anybody using a pit stand on an airhead BMW. Depending on which one you would buy, it lifts at the rear axle or the swingarm. As one side of your "swingarm" is the drive shaft, it will probably be difficult to get a stand that attaches there. You may have to put a bracket on the bike, where the stand can lift on. Maybe someone has first hand experience

    There was an AHRMA airhead parked on a nice stand at the Coonbottom this past November
    Maybe someone got a picture or better maybe the owner will post here

    That's what I'm looking for. Any ideas of brand name or dealer? How does it support the drive shaft side?

    This one uses the shock mounts. Probably longer bolts with a boss to take the stand. Any conventional pit stand will do
