Raleigh - Schwinn Kickstand Question
I am reconditioning an eBay 1971 Raleigh Twenty folding bike that has a bracket for a kickstand but came without one. Also have an eBay Schwinn kickstand that looks about right. I know there is a special tool to compress and install frame kickstands but I don't have one. What is the home mechanic method to compress the spring and install this kickstand?
