    motorcycle tire changing fixture....

    got the idea for this from fixtures built from steel auto wheels but wanted to make something smaller, lighter, and that could be clamped in a vice. Cut the top part off a heavy duty bucket and cut a hole in a piece of plywood to match, attached them with screws, the rest is a piece of angle iron and some 5/8" threaded rod with hardware to suit. A 3/4" drive socket works well as a spacer between the wingnut and the shell of the wheel bearing.
