I cleaned these up ages ago & Hammerited them, fitted new stainless bolts & nyloc nuts, but never used them & won`t now.
They are the type which takes the front forks in the clamp & rear wheel in the cradle so the bike sits in a nose down position. Probably 80`s vintage. You`d need a couple of toestraps for the rear cradles as I pinched them for other duties.
Both pairs for £25 posted.

They are actually rather cool. Will they fit any bike, just wondering if there are different front hub widths which might cause problems?

If it helps I`ve just measured up the distance across the alloy block that the forks are clamped down onto + it`s 97mm. I used to have standard road forks in with no problems.

Good purchase. They are also great for storing bikes in a shed/garage/loft where space is an issue as you can bolt them to the wall or wooden beams at any angle and the bike stays put.
