Engine stand

Has anyone used an engine stand for the 650cc lump?
If so which one and where do you attach it?
I know they're not that heavy but it would make working on it a little easier and also mean I can push it round the garage to free up space.

Re: Engine stand

I made a rotisserie out of a fairly cheap and cheerful engine stand that supports the 500 engine at both ends. I wasn't very happy about it being supported by just 4x8mm bolts, so I adapted the stand so that the support at the rear of the engine bolted straight onto where the rear mount normally bolts onto---tedious, but worthwhile.
