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 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.
