Example picture please
- At the bottom bracket, the hinge prevents mounting - like a normal hardtail.
- At the rear axle, the frame flexes at the corner, so no way to triangulate a mounting.

Errr, $140 for a kick stand? Ugh, there's gotta be a better (cheaper) way.

You can crush and bend/fold the ends of the chainstays to the right length for your bike's height, making pads for it to stand on that way, or just cut them off flat if you don't mind hollow ends. If you have a welder you can weld more flat plates to the ends instead.
I did that for an early stand for CrazyBike2, though I welded the gate hinge to my existing stays, as it was easier than clamping.
