Default Hi-Po motorcycle stands (lots of pics)

I bought a set of "Fly-n-cycle" stands and I was very disappointed in them. So I sold them and went with an e-bay brand known as "Hi-Po". I was basically going off of the looks (looked sturdy) so I bought them. I will say it was very difficult to decide between these and T-Rex Stands. But, moving on with the "Hi-Po"... in short:

The good:
-Sturdy (not like Pit-Bull, but still good)
-protects against scratching
-good design, functional
-easy to assemble and didn't take long (less than 1 beer)

The bad:
-Slow shipping (due to a supplier to one of their parts)
-not powder coated
-doesn't work with frame-slider spool adapters (see photo)

Overall:
a LOT better than "Fly-n-cycle" and cheaper. For $113 shipped, I would definitely recommend them.

Now for the photos:


Arrival and package size (don't mind my dog, he just likes having his picture taken):



Things were well packaged:



Welds are good, but not Honda good:



Quality, scratch-resistant pieces:









Frame-slider spoolarms are too big for the spool arm lift:

Those look nice, but for the price the T-Rex's are hard to beat, like $146 shipped for both rear and front stands w/ triple attachment and they are powder coated.

But those do look sturdy, maybe the maker will refine his design, I like the teflon bits.
