      Thinking about buying a pair of aluminum mag wheels for the bike and ran into a $^%(*() problem with the kickstand.
      The factory one seemed real heavy duty and was welded to a tube on the frame. I don't know how it was built on the
      inside? Work on the bike is still ongoing.

        Nice thing about working with a steel frame is they are far more forgiving to home welders with some skills. I always use drive off stands, double leg, motorcycle style on my motorized bikes. These require either sandwich plates or welded plate on the front of the chain stays to mount, I'm assuming that the factory stand is an interference?

        All chain stretch's a bit initially & then wears over time. Most single speed bike chains are easily adjusted by moving the rear wheel back in the axle drop slots.

        Like to use spring loaded chain tensioners that continually take up the chain slack & that way I don't have tp periodically adjust chains. One tensioner on the motor side and one for the pedal chain.
