    If you know anyone that is into the stock, superstock stuff, or stock car racing, for sure they will have scales.

    It's really very very easy....

    Get 1 set of bathroom scales.
    Put the front wheel on and note the weight.
    Put the back wheel on and note the weight.
    Add the two together and you have the total weight.
    Simple eh.

    If you want to be mega accurate put a block under the opposite wheel thats the same thickness as the scales.

    Truck stops have scales, look for the "cat" sign and for 10.00 they will give you a print out of the weight. Truck scales are accurate within 5 lbs. And are tested by govt. Agency.
