fixing a broken kickstand...
I have an eighties schwinn collegiate 3sp. Its a nice bike, everything's fine except for the kickstand. Its the basic crappy type with a metal sleeve brazed on the frame, kickstand comes out, theres a little nub sticking through a hole in the sleeve. I'm assuming thats what retains the kickstand in the sleeve, as there are no external fasteners.
Usually, the kickstand rotates forward and stops when it reaches vertical, but this one rotates freely 360 degrees. I can feel tension when it rotates to the correct position, but when I prop up the bike it ends up falling over. I would just hack off the sleeve but the fender tab mounted on it, so I'd rather just fix it or pull the arm out of the sleeve. Anybody have this problem before?
