Default Re: wheres a good kickstand?

How about useing an ordinary side stand, one on each side, in line of course, now get someone to hold the bike up straight. now measure the gap from the legs to the ground, and add this, plus another, say 2 inches, now the clever bit, you weld a bar across to each one, straight if you are lucky with your frame to miss the rear tyre, if not, just make it curved, Now all you have to do is push down on it from either side,

and the bike is lifted clear. and a wider safer stand than any ready made type. I am going to try it myself, as i need one, I think it will fold back in the sams position. Don,t know till it,s made.
