Got mine waiting all painted and posh, looks like a good set up.I felt I had to take a file to mine though to beautify it a bit- the sidestand switch bit went and a general clean up to disguise its "Hondaness":), Bob.

I even put one on my 1939 New Imperial ,I had to shorten it a little and weld on a new flat on the bottom ,works great .getting too old pulling old bikes onto the rear stand ,My A comet has a very good HRD side stand ,wonder why Vincent went away from
that set up also the front mudguard stay works great as a front stand.

The return springs get in the way ,maybe a spacer behind the side spring but that would push it out a long way . So unless you move the Dave Hill return spring to the other side I would say NO

I don't have one (yet), so don't know the details. I presume there is a lug on the centre stand, and a bolt hole on the side plate for each end of the spring. So if you have a lug welded onto the stand on the right, it will work with the Honda side stand?

This stand works fine, but it does stand away from the side of the bike quite a bit in its retracted position. It looks like it was designed to hide under a muffler. Without a muffler it sticks out.
