OK OK lets not put it to bed. I'm a mechanical engineer and was only commenting from my perspective that this looks like a very doable bike fix, even if you buy one. We take our bikes everywhere so this is important to us.
Wayne&Sam, I went to the thread you suggested and it is indeed more informative. I hope to see one soon. I didn't mean to open up a can of worms but Denis is right, PVC with a wood core is more than enough to structually support this kind of weight. I might try to build one. I'll post some pics if I do

And create a new thread if you decide to share. Because this thread was asleep. It will help new users to under stand what you have done with reading through 40 posts.

dan . . . , if you engineer a PVC pipe bicycle rack, run it through the industrial design department (that may you) because Airstreams like good aesthetics.

Doug, it will most definately be pleasing to the eye. I have some design software that is awesome. PVC may not work as it fatigues in UV rays. As suggested by the moderator if I take this anywhere I will start a new thread. Just remember Wally started this business selling plans by mail. If piping can be designed to withstand directional changes involving thousands of pounds of water pressure how hard can it be to support 75 lbs of bikes.
Best regards
Dan
