They are not Pit Bulls, but Ian does make a good stand. I've known him since '04 and have ridden with him. He's got good customer service. I've owned a set of his older stands for years with no problems.





Rest in Peace Glenn "Elvis" Breaux - June, 17th 2007 and Chad Clifton - June, 25th 2008. You will always be with me when I ride. I will never forget you.

I used to have the original version of the Redline stands. Couple of things to note:

Rearstand: The "V" does well overall for bent rod. But, be careful. They seemed to have more of a tendency to gouge into the swingarm more than my Pitbull stands do.

Front: I didn't care for the lift pins on the arms. The pushed into the pinch bolts and I wound up putting a couple of washers on them. It was bad enough that when I wanted to pull the front wheel, I had to remove the pinch bolts before I lifted it.


Overall, they were a decent set of stands for the money. IIRC, I think Ian did send these out for mass production instead of building them himself now. I seem to recall a post of his about it.


I personally am of the mindset that I'd rather have the Pitbulls. The rearstand for both spooled and non-spooled swingarms. The front stand is center pin for lifting at the tree so I can remove the suspension if I need to. Otherwise, front hangs freely. The rear hangs freely as it's supported via rearsets on race stands.

Wish I had a better concrete floor in my garage. These look really nice if you have a smooth surface.

I won't do the entire floor. Way too much money. I want to do my bay in checkered black white. I have most of the decor up ie license plates and my Yamaha banners, still way more to do. I have a 50's Montgomery Ward refrig that I want to repaint. Awesome fridge, still set on standard setting and almost freezes shit lol. I can't decide if I want to paint it white again and do a Yamaha logo in blue or white, or paint it Yamaha Blue and a logo in white.

I would Def pull the trigger on these then. Price seems cheap enough. If you like them you could sell the old stands to get a few bucks if you wanted.

no reason to sell the old stands since i'd use them as beaters like i currently do (at the track) since pitbulls can stand up to anything. i'm not worried about getting money back, just individual function. i like to keep things separated in my life no matter how much sense, or lack there of it actually makes.

after looking at your pictures devil, why not just go all out? laminate really doesn't cost that much, i actually did my bike room with an interior kitchen laminate for about 50 bucks plus the glue which i already had on hand from past jobs. (small ass room keep in mind) the taping and painting, well we all know that's dirt cheep, just a time thing. if i was around you i'd offer to do it for free for you (minus a beer or 15)
