When you say welded on kickstand, if you mean a Schwinn Kickstand, there is a special tool made for removing these stands. If you turn the bike upside down and look at the bottom of the tube that holds the stand you will see a hole with a pin in it. What you have to accomplish is to put inward pressure on the bushing to take the load off the pin, then pull the pin with a pair of pliers. The shop in your area that used to be a Schwinn dealer will have the proper tool. Or go to the oldest bike shop in town they probably have one as well.Simple question two:
Does anyone know how to take the bar out of a welded on kickstand. I cut the last one with a hacksaw and I'm NOT looking forward to that again. I need to take about an inch off it. I can also hacksaw that off but I sure don't want to do that. Those kicker bars are really touch on these old bikes.
