TY175: Side Stand Bracket on Swing Arm

The bracket on the swing arm that holds the stand was so worn, that the stand was hitting the swing arm. So, I cut the old one off, and fabricated a new one. I made the new one slightly longer than the old one to hold the bike a little more upright.
I managed to cut the old pin that holds the return spring and re-use that. I made a timber former to supply the welder with, to ensure that angles and positions were correct. He made a good job. The new bracket angle in 3rd photo below is a little wrong, but looks worse than it is!
