I think I finally have the stand to a point where I want it, It's very easy to make with simple tools
The idea is to provide a means of lifting the rear wheel without hydraulic aids like a jack or lift table.
It's possible to raise the rear wheel in about a minute flat for changing tires or removing the rear swing arm.

50" 6 x 2 Lumber
12" 4 x 2 Lumber
18" 1/2" pipe
19" 1/2" Ready Rod with nuts & washers
The large hole in the left hand lift plate is to allow for removal of the rear swing-arm pivot bolt.

If you are going to remove the rear swing arm remove the plate first.https://image.ibb.co/ccKqHb/IMG_1971.jpg
Sorry about being sideways, having a bit of trouble with IMG
I left the Mk I Version here, it works particularly well with a motorcycle lift.Griso Shop Stand Mk I
This version was just knocked together quickly to prove the concept.
Faced with pulling apart the rear end of my Griso I started to think about a shop stand.
As it happens I didn't get it finished in time but last night I had half an hour to spare.
2 lengths of 2 x 4 for lift plates
14" of 1/2" pipe - I found some heavy wall Aluminum tube which is nice
16" of 1/2" ready rod, nuts and washers (actually 1/4" would have done)
3/4" speed bit, hammer and chisel
Slide the tube through the frame hole Luigi provided, you will have to ease it a tad for 1/2" pipe, a rat tail file makes short work of the washer in each end.
The wooden lift plates slide over each end of the tube and engage with the footrest to lock them in place and prevent rotation, secured by the ready rod through the tube.
You may be wondering why I made the lift plates so short, it just so happens I had two lengths available.
To lift the bike I simply run my motorcycle jack underneath.
And jack her up, this is very secure with the nuts just finger tight.
If you remove the footpeg plates in order to pull the swing arm make the lift plates in more of an "A" shape for stability since the footpegs aren't there to lock the plates.
