Rear Axle Kickstand

Anyone have any suggestions for a solid, retro-looking rear axle mounted kickstand for a 26 inch wheel bike? It's an old, English roadster. I have an old, Wald stand, but it's pretty loose and the quality is marginal in my book. The chaincase support bar and the rod brake elbow will not allow a normal kickstand, so I'm stuck with rear axle mount it seems.

Can't speak to the quality, but the rear axle kickstand is the norm down here. If you don't find anything, let me know and i'll send you one. My wife's one-speed cruiser has the same one that came new on it 5 years ago. Going strong.

Thanks for the offer- what do these stands look like? I've seen a couple kinds of rear mount stands.

Two different types here. One mounts to the axle; the other to the seat and chain stays. Both well under $10. Both steel.

The first type that went on the axle seems closer to my purpose, and nicely it comes in black I guess. Is there a shop online where I can order one or are they local down in Mexico?

I've never seen them anywhere but here, and they're ubiquitous. Up until a few years ago it was hard to find anyone who knew what a center mount kickstand was.
I see you're in Virginia. My parents have recently moved to Harrisonburg. I'll be there the last half of October, and can bring a couple with me, or I can send them through the mail if you're in a bit more of a hurry. Let me know.

At the moment I am in no rush. What I've got on there will last a little while longer with the repairs I've made, but probably is still temporary. I could wait until October. Thanks very much again.
