I ordered a rear mount kick stand for the tri car from China. Free shipping but a month or more to get to Canada. For $8 the shipping time was cut down a little. I emailed the company and a couple of hours later I received a reply that $15 more over the free shipping cost would get it here in a week to two weeks. Done deal.

I ordered it on May 27th and paid the extra $15 the same day with a Pay Pal invoice. It was delivered this morning May 30th by the Canada Post Office. The packaging was excellent.

It is built like a bridge with riveted construction. I don't think that there is any danger of collapsing even with me on it and it fits the bike build era perfectly. The return springs are strong so I don't think it will drop down while riding.

I'll try and get some photos in a couple of days. I put it on the bike and show how it mounts up to it. Won't have it on the ground for a couple of weeks or so. The bike stand is 3/16" X 5/8" flat steel and where it mounts to the bike is 1/8" steel. It has two solid straps that look like heavy coaster brake arm mounts that hold the front of the bike mounting arms much like they were brake arms.

There is a locking mechanism that you flip forward and it locks the legs in place so they can't move forward or backwards.

If your looking for a vintage rear kickstand I don't think you can do better that this one.

Looks just like the one I used on my bicycles when I was in Japan as a child. they were strong enough you could get on the bike, spool up the tire real fast and then rock forward and the tire would chirp. Man those were the days

I think it would hold a bike weighing 140. I weight a Big Mac meal over 250 pounds and the tri car will weigh in at about 100 pound at the rear wheel and I don't expect any problems. The locking system to hold the kickstand in place is spring loaded and substantial. I hope to have the bike finished in the the next couple of weeks and I'll post a video of it being started so everyone can form their own opinion.
