    Never saw one but they probably come off like any Schwinn type built in kick stand. Push in the ring which is around the stand diameter right at the mount, and then pull out the pin which releases the stand.

    I made a home made kickstand removal tool from one of the sparkplug wrenches that came with a engine kit.
    Slice the wrench down each side so that you have two 'C' halfs... then use a bar clamp over the whole kickstand mount & the tool to press in the ring a bit; then the pin can be removed.
    I'll try to post a few pics tomorrow.
