Elto Pal handle and stand

Postby alanp » Mon Jan 08, 2018 8:56 pm

Hello. I picked up this Elto Pal and it has a small carry handle on the front and a bracket on the back for setting it on. They look professionally made. Were these an option or accessory that you could purchase?
Thank you.
Alan

Not a factory option. The rear stand looks
as though it could have been made from a bicycle
rear wheel stand.

Thanks Tubs,
It sure looks like a bike stand. What thru me was it looks like it was manufactured not homemade and fits so nicely.

I like to find creative owner modifications
and if well done I will keep them on the
motor. The best one I have found is this
battery boost switch on an Evinrude
RBM. Made to function as this one offered
by the company.

That bike stand doesn't look like a bad idea. I may make one for my Pal so I don't dent up the tank when I lay it down. Or if you're planning on taking it off, I'll take it off your hands
When in doubt, duct tape!

Thanks Mike but I agree with Tubs. I also like the alterations when they are done well. I will clean and polish it and I think I will put both handles back on.

Then I guess I'll be making my own now! That's a really good idea that the previous owner had

Pals are noted for having the skeg broken off.
A stand would keep that from happening.

On all 4 of my Pals, the tanks are dented right on the back where they were probably dropped. I think it should also help keep it from rolling around in the trunk of a car
