Sorry, I thought I had responded. You can see a number of them on Amazon. Search "center kickstand with two legs" or "kickstand for bikes" to see a larger selection.
For the rear rack, I used: Adjustable Touring Rear Back of Bike Carrier - Pannier Luggage Rack with Extended Wings - Light Aluminum - Load Limit 55 lbs/25kg
again, I got off Amazon. I bought it for two features, it folds out to be wider (so I can strap on my backpack and it had a mount for a rear tail light.
Great job. I have a 28 year old Giant Rincon that I want to do the same with.
I'm curious where you got the center kickstand.
Helps immensely - thanks.
The brakes work ok. The issues with converting a bike this old is the steering tube is 1" (nowdays steering tubes are 1 1/8") so you won't be able to upgrade to disc brakes or add suspension. Like Johnny has said, "if your brakes work and stop, then don't bother with an upgrade on the brakes."
What I changed out: Added a flat steel piece to frame to get better battery mount
support. (Neighbor has a Tig welder)
Replaced the original brakes with cantilever brakes.
Rear cassette, rear derailer and shifter
Main gear ring with 28T (Shortening gear inches from 32" to 21") I
did this because the hills I will be doing.
Rear lights and rear rack
Powder coating the frame set me back about $200.
My only regret is that I can't upgrade to disc brakes. That said one of the advantages of the older style brakes are that parts are common.
Hope this helps and good luck with your project!
I just saw this and am intrigued. I have a similar vintage bike I am thinking of converting.
1. How do your brakes work?
2. Do you have more details for your build?
@fmalbert Wiring looks clean. Nice job.
I'd suggest palm rest grips. Walmart. You'll love them
Nice ride. I like your battery bracket.
