The kick stand on my '68 was broken off when I bought it and only has the center stand. Is there an aftermarket available or some other option? The center stand is a pain to use.

I would repair the existing set-up. There are plenty of stands available on fleabay, it is just a question of fabricating a base and welding it on.

Hi Mark,

I am inclined to run with Blap with this. I had the same situation with my '66 Trophy years ago and ran around with just the centre stand for a few months which became a major pain (especially on hills!!).

I wasn't much of a welder in those days so I got a mate to weld the cleat on the frame for me.

That said though, there are the clamp on type stands available.

Best rgds


Regards

Grant

Google "Moore's Cycle Center" in Anaheim, Ca.
Check his custom parts. Prefabricated, weld on, side stand mounts, with a re-enforced section against the frame. Looks bullet proof to me.

I traced the lug from another bike onto a piece of paper.
Transferred it to a piece of 1/2" steel and cut it to the rough shape with a cutoff wheel in a die grinder and finished it up on my bench grinder. It took less than an hour and cost nothing.

Hey great timing! This evening I just took delivery on a 69 TR6C frame with no side stand mount. I was going to start the arduous search for the piece or fabricate.

Thanks desco, Shel that looks great!

Guy has a nice repair bung on fleabay all the time. Has the rounded base that looks like factory. Search under motorcycle parts. I'd send a link but I'm heading to the coast for a few days, gotta go...

My bike is restored with the frame powercoated. Is there a decent bolt-on that would work? If so, who sells them. It doesn't look like there is much room between the frame and motor to clamp one on it?

Can a replacement Sidestand Tab be welded on without removing the motor? I'm not a welder, so I'll need to find someone to do it for me.

When shopping for a replacement Sidestand, what years and models are the same as my '68 T120? What is the length of the stock Sidestand?

Thanks,
Mark

I nearly skipped fixing it because I would have a center stand anyway and I don't have any metal working/fabrication experience but I thought if I didn't fix it at some point I'd regret it.

i used a clamp on stand on my old chop when the lug broke and i didnt want to damage the paint welding another on. worked perfect and there is enough room. there are a few on uk eBay and most of the brit spares guys sell them here. search for 'universal sidestand' 1" will be the one your after i think but best measure your frame. they come in 7/8", 1" and 1 1/4".

I also had mine welded (before I taught myself to weld) to my recently powder coated frame. Sanded small required section of powder off first and touchd up with an enamel.

A vey quick search for uni sidestands:

Mark, your 68 should have a 1-1/8" frame tube dia. Steadfast Cycles sells a serated clamp-on side stand that may work. It measures 10" from clamp center to end. They're on eBay, or can be contacted at triumph77@earthlink.net The current auction # is 120389318640. I've never delt with them, they seem ok. Located in Ca.

Best,
Tom

Is the stock side stand length 10" too?
