Remove kickstand

I'd like to remove this kickstand, but don't see how. There isn't a pin like on a Schwinn - any ideas?

Thanks!

Use a punch and drive out that roll pin; use caution as there is a fairly robust spring loading the assembly.

I fully agree use a punch but remember its not a center punch (that will spread it) its a drift punch see attached, which come in different sizes to suite the pin being removed, most likely you will not have one: you can try a SS bolt about +1." long, file the end so its flat it should work.

Forgot to mention the SS bolt has to be the same diameter as the pin, if you have a SS bolt also cut the thread section off then it will be stronger.

Use this method to take the spring pressure off. https://www.google.com/search?q=schw...TF-8#kpvalbx=1

Neat video, doesn't work with all kickstands--the bushing on some frames is hidden beneath the lip of the kickstand braze-on.

Unsurprisingly, there is a tool for that:



You can also use a c-clamp and a filed/cutout copper tee fitting.

I've used the channelock method also.

The OP's kickstand is retained by a roll pin, which will probably not simply drop out even if the spring pressure can be relieved.

Thanks - using the punch worked perfectly. That plus a pair of pliers and I got it off.

Good job. Be sure to come back with pics when the bike is completed.

Well thats good it was helpful, you seem to have found the correct punch, & of course its the same routine to replace the pin once all the parts are cleaned up.

Might do - I am setting this up as a beater bike - one no one would give a second look at and therefore would never think to steal, so not so sure if it would be of much interest. Unless there is a beater bike forum some where...

You can start a "show your beater bike" thread. I'll post a couple of mine. The problem for me is that I build a beater bike, and it becomes my favorite, so then I have to build another beater bike...

No such thing. Anything can be stolen if it can be ridden or carried away. I won't ride anything I'd be ashamed to be seen on. Then I follow accepted locking protocols.

Good point, no such thing as something being 100% secure.

I've never actually owned a "beater bike" and I suspect after working on this one, I won't want it stolen (I've already grown fond of it), so will end up locking it up. But the "cosmetically challenged" look I am going for, along with the lock, will be an added deterrent.

Absulutely,bike thieves are not stealing your bike per sť.
They are stealing something they can sell.
They don't have to but they want to steal good looking bikes.
