Center Stand Issues_Yes, musket-ball 1979 model

Gentlemen: After searching archives with no luck, my question...

When using center stand on level ground, bike will fall over with a one-finger slight pressure push. I need to shim right side 3/8 inch to balance it. Viewing photos, does this look like correct angle for a '79 R65? When jacked up and center stand free, I can grab and wiggle the stand some. The bushings seem to be tight, but perhaps are  worn. Per the third photo, do I need to weld an 1/8" bead at the top where it hits the frame to straighten up the stand angle?  Please, any suggestions short of replacing the center stand very much appreciated. 

I know, it's warming up and nobody is reading the forums.  But, when it rains, please advise.

Thanks in advance, as always!

that centerstand is vastly over-rotated, but the wear at the top does not look at all bad. I suspect the bushes are shot.

They are cheap so buy a pair and book yourself in for a maintenance half-hour (which, if as I suspect that all is wrong is the bushes, is all it is going to take you)

Thanks, Tony. Yes, the bushings are cheap enough to not break the bank.

Appreciate your thoughts.

What about the stand itself?  Is it possible that the holes in the stand might be worn?  I know that the bushing is supposed to be the wearing surface, but we know how cheaply made the actual stand is...
