A stand for motor cycles and the like to this end to permit the foot 16 to'be freely comprising a member adapted to be secured swung about the bolt 15 through an arc of to the frame of the motor cycle, a foot 50 180, so long as the bolt 15 is maintained hingedly mounted on said member and at the outer end of the slot 18. adapted to swing up to an inoperative posi- It will be clear, however, that as the foot tion and to swing down so as to reach the 16 is swung so as to be parallel to the wall ground in an operative position, a longi- 19 and moves endwise so as to place the tudinal slot in said foot having parallel 55 bolt 15 at the inner end of the slot 18, the sides, a pin on said member passing through said slot and a wall on said member adjacent said pin, and at a distance there from equal to half the thickness of said "root at the slotted end whereby the weight of the frame in the ope ative position holds the foot locked against said Wall.
2. A stand for motor cycles and the like comprising a member adapted to be secured to the frame of the motor cycle, a foot hingedly mounted on said member adapted to swing to an inoperative position and to swing down so as to reach the ground in an operative position, a longitudinal slot in said foot apin on said. member passing; through said slot, a Will on said member adjacent said pin and at a distance therefrom equal to half the thickness oi said foot at the slotted end, a depression in the side of said foot at the slotted end and a spring pressed plunger adapted to engage said depression When the foot is raised to the inoperative position and the pin is at the inner end of said slot, to hold the foot in said position.
3. A stand for motor cycles and the like comprising a member adapted to be secured to the frame of the motor cycle, a foot hingedly mounted on said member and adapted to swing up to an inoperative position and to swing down so as to reach the ground in an operative position, a longitudin'al slot in said foot, a pin on said member passing through said slot, a Wall on said member adjacent said pin, and at a distance therefrom equal to half the thickness of'said foot at the slotted end, whereby the foot is held by said Wall in both operative and inoperative positions When the pin is at the inner end of the slot, and means operable by the longitudinal movement of said foot for holding it in either of said positions.
