el cheapo hf. but there needs to be some modifications. the center support made for the axle and mar resistant pads on the rim clamps. i have two mounts, one cemented with bolt on app and a pvc pipe slip in with two prong stops.

No-Mar Classic. https://www.nomartirechanger.com/Tire_Changers_s/37.htm

They've changed their line a bit since I bought mine as a Christmas present to me in 2016. They have some really good deals at times on e-bay.

I got the hitch mount and welded a receiver to my welding bench (yes my welding bench can now tow a trailer) to mount it to when I need it so it takes up virtually no space when it's not being used.

I use my car tire changer. I use an old rotor on the wheel to clamp with. Works great.

I carry a set of tyre levers on my dirt bike, in case I need to change a tube out in the sticks, but I don't think I'll be trying that on the Sporty.

Yep. Used 'em for too many years. They're why I finally bought a N0-Mar tire changer.

Cheap saddlebag Goodies

I like the spoons with the bluntest front edge and the rod in back is loop like so.

Sure, I use the tire spoons with the wheel/tire mounted on the tire machine.
