Vintele Prop Stand

Has anyone fitted one of the Vintele prop stands to their WDM20? They look like an interesting option instead of the very hard to use rear stand.

Re: Vintele Prop Stand

not sure what a Vintele is but i have a vintage clamp-on sidestand that i am thinking of bolting on and then welding it on if it works as expected

Re: Vintele Prop Stand

I fitted a prop stand to my 'Indian' M20 but the clamp didn't hold very well so I welded the back clamp to the frame tube. Even so I much prefer the safety of the rear stand, the side stand is really useful for hopping off to open and shut gates etc.

I don't find the field stand on my proper M20 as useful for such occasions as it is liable to roll off the stand whilst left ticking over in neutral.:unamused: Ron

Re: Vintele Prop Stand

Only noticed now that you fitted a G3WO chain case to the bike Ron!! nice touch, they are so elegant.

But to get back to the side stand, I think he means the very early KM20 one, that fits on the rear brake pivot lug on the frame, recently saw some pictures of that.

Re: Vintele Prop Stand

The chaincase is M20 Lex but I moved the cush drive cup inwards. The rear chain-guard is Matchless though if that's what you meant?

Yes there was someone on the forum going ahead with a repro batch of those KM side stands. I had my name on one, but it's all gone quiet. Ron

Re: Vintele Prop Stand

I recently added a Royal Enfield sidestand to my rigid framed B33. Works a treat and no modifications needed to the frame, just a spacer plate and a couple of longer studs. It locks in the down position when weight is on it and springs back when you take the weight off.

Thanks all for the information. Here is the website of the Vintele I was asking about: https://www.vintele.co.uk/

Pete C, I really like that setup, what make and model is the Royal Enfield stand? I like the fact that it is held by a plate and two bolts, it is sort of like the side stand on my BSA C12.

Mark appears to be referring to this. (link) It's a reproduction of the EsWay. I have no personal knowledge of it.

Re: Vintele Prop Stand

Yes, they market it as a modern version of it!

Re: Vintele Prop Stand

Mark, I was afraid you might ask about the RE stand. Fact is I got it off a mate who is the local RE dealer and I have no idea what it is off originally. Not a new item by any means, it was kicking around in his "parts" bin.. I'll try and contact him and ask.

I had to make up the aluminium spacer under the plate and a couple of longer studs, but as the stand was the price of a pint I was happy enough.

Re: Vintele Prop Stand

Looking around on the internet it looks like the stand may be from a 90's Bullet. I like the fact that it is not one that clamps on to a frame tube, those always seem to not be tight enough to work for a long time. If your fried does have some more information, I would really appreciate it.
