M33 / B33 plunger side stand
« on: 03 February, 2018, 15:45:21 »
Hello all, I am thinking of acquiring a 1954 M33 plunger.  I am trying to source a quality side stand as being short would find the bike difficult to get on/off, and raise onto its centre stand. I would be grateful for any suggestions on where to source a side stand, and where the best fixing point might be on the frame.  Has anyone gone down this route?  Thanks in advance.

Thank you Chris Goodwin.  Did you weld it to the frame to stop it rotating/slipping?

No, Just nipped it up with the two bolts, just watch that you give enough clearance for the drive chain when fitting.

Thanks again.  One last question - where on the frame did you fix the side stand?
Regards,

LJ.

Hi,
A side stand makes a huge difference, mine, on my B33, is as shown in the photograph and is welded on. Trouble is, the centre stand is difficult to pull down, it is a job where I need to weld on an arm of some sort.
