    Default Weld on kickstand reviews

    Anybody used Universal weld on kickstand with internal spring. A few of the big box Chopper parts companies all have them for sale. They note that they are not for use on Kickstart motorcycles which obviously makes it sound like they don't want you kicking your bike while it's on the kickstand. Wondering if there is a weak point or if it's just a disclaimer in case you can't weld good.

    Ahhh. Good point Tattoo. I dropped a bike in the driveway recently that did not have a locking stop. Old Honda. Bumped it while backing out my shovelhead. I will look into that.

    On the other hand, anybody make a weld on bracket for a stock kickstand for maybe evo sportster or ironhead style.

    I'm putting together a CB350 chop for a buddy. It's in a hardtail frame with no tabs or brackets other than motor mounts. I have a long ironhead kickstand so may just make a mount for it. He's paying me for the work and for the parts but id rather make a quick buck welding on this one rather than bunch of time fabricating.

    Lowbrow offer some. They're beefy. I bought one for a Sporty four speed frame getting a five speed engine (the stock stand is in the way). I've not welded it on yet but everything appears as it should.

    Yeah Farmall that's exactly what I'm talking about. Glad to know they are beefy.

    Do the lock while in the down position with pressure on like a stock stand?

    It has a ball detent for the extended position but doesn't rock into place like the stock HD stand. (For anything needing that I'd do what I did to my FXR and mount a traditional jiffy stand to a three hole pad.)
    A stock stand wouldn't be difficult to harvest by cutting out the section from a scrap frame. I did that first but the Lowbrow unit is cleaner looking and the bike won't have a kick starter so I'm not worried about stability.

    I've used this bracket a couple times with good results, even on kickstart only bikes. Accepts a stock style Ironhead kickstand and it's a nice heavy piece for easy welding.

    Yessir. That's what I'm talking bout. I like this better because his bike has long front-end and needs a longer kickstand and i have a long ironhead kick stand. Thanks Ian.
