    Schwinn kickstand

    I want to remove the kickstand from a 63 Schwinn Hollywood bike in preparation for repainting. Any ideas as to how this is done?

    Hi tsappenfield - Your question is lost here with the Appraisals - You need to ask this question in the Main C&V forum - Someone will be able to answer.

    There's a step by step procedure on the web. Google it and you will find it. Basically you need a large adjustable plier and a small nut to compress the spring, then pull the retention pin.

    Here's how I do it:
    Slide other end of an adjustable wrench onto kickstand


    then compress spring collar and pull the retention pin with a pair of pliers

    Removing a Schwinn kickstand

    I'm tearing down a '63 Schwinn Hollywood. How do you remove the kickstand with "conventional" tools? I understand that there is a special tool for the removal, but what should you use and how to you go about it if you don't have the tool in question?

    I took mine to the LBS that was the Schwinn dealer back in the "day" It took them about 10 minutes to find the old tool and about 30 seconds to remove the kickstand. They did not charge me anything.

    I think I answered this in the other posting. You need a large set of pliers and a nut to compress the spring, then pull the pin with a vise grip or similar, and you are done. Will take 10 seconds. Google it, as a more thorough explanation is on the web.
