BSA Sloper Side Stand at 'Proof of Concept' Stage
BSA Sloper Side Stand at ‘Proof of Concept’ Stage

The rear stand lifts the Sloper very high off the ground and is awkward to use, so I have fabricated a side stand using an ‘off the shelf’ universal type. The original bracket clamps around the frame (in theory, at least), so this was discarded and a replacement was fabricated from 8mm and 12mm steel plate, welded to a 52° internal angle. Mounting is via the brake lever bracket ahead of the footrest, with a dowel to prevent rotation. A bit of tidying up and painting is required, but the machine is now easy to manage and sits at a secure angle.
