Thinking about getting a center stand for my 58 pan head. The cast-aluminum version that is available. Does anyone have one installed on their swing-arm pan? Curious if you need to be able to bench press 400 lbs to get that lady up onto it. Does not look like there is a pad or something on it to push with your foot while lifting with your arm to get her up.

I've had one on all my Duo Glides. I use it when changing tires, lubing the chain, washing the bike, etc. I drop the stand, hold the bike upright on the left side, place my right boot at the back of the stand and lift up and back using the rear crash bar. I'm pushing 60 and can still do it by myself. Make sure you have all the correct hardware including the spacers for the mounting bolts so the stand swings freely. Ed.
