The two-part Dynamoto motorcycle stand is an amazing invention designed, engineered and built in Australia to make your bike easy to clean, maintain and move around your garage.
This invention is the genius of Brisbane mechanical engineer Stuart Black and designer Stephen McGuiness. I interviewed them three years ago when they were looking for crowd-funding to get started.
They now have a thriving business with export sales to countries such as the USA and Taiwan.
Dynamoto front and rear stands cost $785, or you can just buy the rear for $540.
However, the real beauty of this invention is that, with both stands, you can push the bike sideways. That makes it so easy to store your bike if you have limited garage space.
It’s all thanks to the use of Australian-designed and manufactured omni-directional Rotacaster wheels.
It may sound like a lot of money, but the versatile, elegant, quality product also shows off your bike. So you can spend hours in the garage with a beer just admiring it.
I’ve been testing the Dynamoto stand with my Triumph Street Scrambler and it simply makes my life so much easier.
I can ride into the garage, put it on the stand, turn it around and it’s ready to ride straight back out.
No need to back into or out of the garage and no multi-point turns to manoeuvre is in tight spaces.
In fact, it’s so secure yet light to move, your kids could even move the bike for you. Plus, there is no fear of anyone bumping your pride and joy and knocking it off the stand.
If your floor is slanted, you will need to chock the wheels s it doesn’t roll.
I’ve used paddock stands before, but none has ever been as versatile as the Dynamoto.
While it’s on the rear stand, you can maintain the chain and clean the back wheel.
Front stand ‘genius’
But here’s the genius; you can also clean the front wheel, then simply pull it forward a couple of inches to clean were the forks were in the way.
What other stand will allow you to do that without the fear of your bike toppling off the stand?
This is safe and secure because the handle relocates to the side to act as a brake. That stops the rear stand from tipping up and dropping the bike.
So why would you need to also buy the front stand? Well, you may not if you don’t need to move the bike sideways, but Stephen says they have had few buyers so far opt for the rear stand only.
“We have had a great response from people who have purchased the stands, with many being repeat customers,” he says.
Dynamoto stands will fit most bikes wth pick-up bobbins on the rear.
They are currently working on a solution for cruisers and a rear-wheel stand for bikes without pick-up bobbins.
Dynamoto stands are manufactured in Brisbane using high-quality steel precision tube, CNC laser cutting, CNC bending and robot welding.
“We decided to manufacture in Australia because we have direct access to and close relationships with our suppliers and we can be assured of the quality,” Stuart says.
