Kickstand no for Schwinn Twinn

Hello all,

I am fixing up an old tandem for a friend, The head tube serial number is seemingly defaced almost beyond legibility, with (as best as I can tell) a new serial number stamped over the original one. The marked-up photo shows the new serial that's been stamped over the old one(Why would this be done?) But I have been able to determine that the serial number is JR808XX (last two original numbers are GONE). That, combined with the frame design, tells me that this is a 1980 Schwinn Twinn DeLuxe, and that the front fork and brakes, as well as the Shimano coaster brake, are not original. Also it's been painted at some point.

Does anyone know what Schwinn kickstand number I would need for a 1980 Schwinn Twinn? I can't seem to find the info online, and the kickstand is entirely missing except for the welded-on frame bracket.

I couldn't get the whole serial in one shot. This looks like a J, followed by a very faint R, Followed by an indescipherable character with an incomplete R under it,
