is the bike garaged?


If so, you could probably rig up a rope & pulley system from one of the garage rafters.


Probably not the SAFEST thing in the world, but if you take your time rigging it (and protecting your bike with towels / sponges etc...) you'd probably be alright?

actually.. this probably will end in tears...


I've actually no real idea on how to go about it without a stand... perhaps there's some kind member near you with one to lend?

Put the bike in gear (ie lock the back wheel), tie 2 ropes to the head stock, and pull them back, and to the left and right, till the front wheel is off the floor, then tie them down.


This is somewhat a bodge job but it just came to mind. Good luck whatever you do.

Car jack and a board under the centre point?


Leave in gear and brace/lash it into position - or better yet get someone to hold it upright for you.
