Hi Dave,
Looks interesting.
Just a couple of questions:
a) What material is it made of?
b) Does it take a standard pillion footrest rubber?
TIA for answers.

Aluminum and stainless. I did not intend it to be covered. I do not believe any foot peg rubbers have a round hole.

Dave,
Thanks, I will give the handle a try as soon as the Trident is off the Handi Lift, doing some Winter maintenance.

Nice work on the assembly.

Best,
Rob

I've seen this done on an OIF using a passenger peg, and my K Beemer has a lift handle as stock.
But, my Trident is the easiest bike I have to get on the center stand. I can get it up while sitting on the seat. laugh
Maybe I should mount a 19" rear wheel on the other bikes?

I agree with David that the Trident is my easiest bike to get on the center stand, it only takes a minimum of effort.
My Commando ont he other hand was always a struggle to place the bike on the stand.
I ended up by shortening the center stand of the Norton by approx 3/4 of an inch, this gave a huge improvement.
The only drawback is that the tire of the rearwheel now just touches the ground, so I have to place the bike on a piece of plywood to remove the rearwheel., only a minor inconvenience imo.
I admit that with the tubular stand of the Norton, this mod is easier to do than the Triumph stand.
