Went outside the other day and saw my bike tipped over. Could have been hooligans, however, much more likely my dumb ass didn't inspect the kickstand often enough. I park it on a hill in SF, and I think it finally just caved in.

I'll attach a pic of a normal one (from elsewhere on this site), and mine..you can see the actual metal that holds the jiffy stand broke. Not sure what to do... Any suggestions how to fix?

Somebody who is fairly handy with a welder and grinder should be able to sort that out quite easily. Frame rail comes off easily to take to a welder also.

I'd say even that normal one has seen some serious abuse as in too long before bushing changes.

yea, likely falls into: lessons learned the hard way.

I think perhaps it fell because the lower bushing (which tbh I made the mistake of never checking) blew letting the kickstand pivot the wrong way (far forward), then when it fell the weight of the bike leaning/falling downhill ripped the bolt straight through the metal mount.

Huge screw up, prob could have been avoided by checking that lower bushing.

Looks like mine used to. A decent welder with a MIG should be able to do it in an hour or two. I did mine myself (I am a "decent" welder) in about an hour with a MIG, a 4 1/2" grinder and a die grinder.
