engineer a bultaco sidestand mount

senor bulto in his infinite wisdom decided that a detachable square stock sidestand was a good thing.
that works great in a race when you are going to circle back and pick up the side stand. not so good when you are just tooling around town, and need to haul the sidestand with you. currently some velcro holds the sidestand to the bars.
certainly someone has engineered an ingenious method to attach the side stand to the bars or somewhere else that is better than velcro?
i'd rather not reinvent the wheel. I can build something with a buncha polisport handlebar parts that will provide quick detach with a couple wingnuts. maybe someone has already done this?

Take a piece of 8mm steelplate and cut it out so you have one hole for a pin, can be for a 6 or 8mm bolt and another hole for the sidestand, at least 18 - 20mm, you can too place a ring washer for better action between the bolt of the sidestand and the hole for the side stand mount. Ad an abutment for the side stand.

Weld it to the swing arm.

take a tube between 15 - 18mm, bend it to your needs, weld a plate to the lower end and full pipe to the other end,
drill a hole and a cut a 8mm groove in the full tube. then a second pin for the spring and then you have a nice side stand just mounted with one bolt. You can mount it on the left or right side as you want.



If you don't want to see the spring, weld the pins on the rear side of the mount and the side stand.

not interested in adding a sidestand to the bike. looking for an elegant solution to mount the detachable sidestand. i think i have a pretty good solution with polisport bar end mounts attached to the crossbar. just looking for the quickest fastener mount/demount options. something faster/more convenient than lynch pins or hitch pins. the fastener needs to stay attached to the mounts whether the sidestand is on or not, this rules out the spring loaded hitch pins.

Still curious as to what model it is is because Pursangs are, by no means, street legal for putting around town.

If it is a pursang (the tank colors indicate it might be,) how are you riding that around town?

This setup with the sidestand shown above is not contemporary
