Default Re: Will removing Schwinn kickstand bracket weaken the fame

It might weaken the frame just a little if you removed it... But you can always just weld in a new flat plate in it's place.
When I built the white BMX bike, I left it on because I thought it might weaken it if I removed it, & I might also want to put a kickstand back on it some day; (even though BMX bikes don't have kickstands.)

If you look close, you can see that I left it on... (& you can also see the new 'Sportsman' rear sprocket.)
