I'm the not so recent owner of a 1968 R69S that is in need of a full engine overhaul (non-running bike with a stuck motor). I'd like to work comfortably on this engine and was looking at different engine stand options but was wondering if anyone was either looking to sell theirs or had plans already made to construct their own. I've seen some pictures on line but not any schematics.
So, does anyone know of any DIY engine stand plans?

Can generic stands be made to work? If so, seems like you'd spend a lot less time and money that way.

And here's a look at the stands made by the person I mentioned above...these are images from the internet back sites:
