Here are my pictures.  Unfortunately, you cannot see the square tubes in the first picture.  It's too dark.  I have lots of substantial steel under and behind that DOT bumper.  It's not a stainless Eagle blade, but it has its practical advantages.

I can carry up to 3 bikes on the rack.  I bungee tie the bikes to my mirror posts.

I made my own rack out of square tubing.  I mounted 2 square tubes under my front bumper, each half of the rack slides into the tubes with a pin.  The bikes hang upside down by the wheels and I bungy cord tie them to the rack and my mirror posts.  I have cheap bikes.  I'd be upset if stolen but not a great financial loss.  They do get wet and have a bit of rust, but I oil them up from time to time.  The worse they look the less likely to be stolen.

David,

Been thinking about making a similar rack. Looking forward to stealing looking at your idea.

I have the same attitude about the bikes, buy cheap ones and don't worry about them.

If I ever need a really good one I will just head up to the Carolina's... Wink   Scott, your my hero... Grin
