Default Re: double leg kickstand

I have a center stand from bikeworldusa which has been mounted on a 63 Schwinn and now a 51 Schwinn. There's room. Since the last posting in this thread I have purchased two of the center stands with telescopic legs from Piston Bikes and they are above and beyond anything else I've seen. Very sturdy and well worth the money. On my Schwinn Motorbike build I used a Whizzer front fork and the bikeworldusa stand no longer reached the ground. This one does and is more stable with two return springs. I bought the second one for a friend's 49 Schwinn Panther. If you can spend a little more the one with telescopic legs is well worth it.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
