Motorcycle Engine Stand?!!?!

So I have an 87 Honda Rebel 250 that I'm in the process of restoring. Right now, I have the engine off the bike and figured that I'm going to do some maintenance engine work to it such as changing out the clutch and whatnot and some oil seals.

Rather than just plopping the engine on a work bench, i rather have it on a stand and be able to rotate it around if needed or whatever. I've been googling for the past hour trying to look for one or some adapter plates but I can't find one except for a $300 metric stand on motor-cycle superstore. Any suggestions anyone?!

Harbor Freight. If you have to, you can make/buy some aluminum angle brackets and run a rod through them and the motor mounts. Hope that makes sense. Good luck.

I can't say. I cut some and drilled holes in them.
