Where to buy a kickstand plate with fender mount

Hi,

I'm wondering if anyone know where I might be able to get a kickstand plate with fender mount to braze on to an existing frame?
Something like this:

Thanks!

Don't know where to get those, but if you can't find one, it wouldn't be hard to make one. Some heave gauge sheet steel will be plenty strong. Thin mild steel plate would also be able to be bent like that. Drill your holes first, then bend in a vice.

Green, I have one you can buy. Email me for more specifics. These are the kickstand plates we use on the bicycle frames we build in Ukraine for pastors. They are laser cut in the city of Cherkassy about 200 km south of Kiev on the Dnipro River.

If you wanted more than one they can be made out of flat stock and the tabs bent in a vise (like taras said). I can mail you the pattern. I have done this but it takes a bit of practice to get the spacing for the kickstand clearance to be just right. I would practice with some scrap pieces before trying to bend one you have nicely cut and filed to shape.

One useful trick I learned was to braze a stainless steel washer over the 10mm hole for the holding bolt. Do this before brazing the plate onto the frame. This both strengthens the whole plate from the bending forces of the long kickstand leg and looks better when it is masked so the lock washer is not yucking up the paint. One very important point is to braze the plate onto the frame with brass and not silver. Silver won’t stand up to the abusive forces of a long kickstand (even if properly brazed). A water bottle boss is brazed into the tab that holds the fender.

We have many of our frame building parts laser cut in Ukraine including the twin plate fork crowns and the front and rear dropouts. The story is I was explaining to the guy in charge of our project that I couldn’t find these parts in Europe or Asia. Our translator interrupted to say “my dad can make those for you”. Of course we go “WHAT?!”. It was a wonderful coincidence because they now make the stainless steel fixtures that replicates a full scale drawing.

Great idea, Doug. I've taken to putting these plates on everything that isn't a mountain bike and I'm going to add a washer to the next one. I'll also suggest that using a wine bottle cork (cut to the required length) is a spiffy way to take up space between the plate and the fender allowing you to locate the plate in the best possible place. I prefer a nice California pinot noir cork, but you could use Two Buck Chuck for something that needs to be locked up at the train station.

Just a thought Doug, but maybe you should hook up your Ukraine parts makers with a distributor like Ceeway and/or Nova. I have enough of these plates to last me for awhile, but it would be nice to find someone stocking them. I can't be the only one into the do-all type of every day bike.

I've made my own out of 2 mm (80 thou) plate, and by brazing a piece of rod (instead of bending the plate) and an eyelet for the fender. It's tricky to locate the bolt hole properly.

The New Pletcher Comp Kickstands go on the rear..

Drill and fit a pair of steel tubes brazed thru the chainstay for the bolts ..
So tight bolts & nuts on the inside end wont crush the Chain stay that way

I have scored Plates for a centerstands, just sawed them out of old discarded bike frames..

Don't know if the OP is the OP that has posted on framebuilders@googlegroups.com but Brian replied that he has a lot of plates for the asking. Andy.

Funny; I remember when a kickstand plate was proof of a cheapo frame...
