I don't know about you, but I just bought a $1000 bike to ride the trails and was getting frustrated at the small amount of options I had to transport it. I needed to build my own.
Before I instruct you, I must say this is my first instructable and I also have no responsibility for anybodies bikes damaged. This Project does require a bit of basic pvc cementing, and design skills. You should be able to effectively measure out your trucks dimensions and adapt the design to fit your truck. I will not provide measurements but I will tell you what you need to measure. That being said, here we go.
This project cost me roughly $130. That is quite cheap, and I'm sure you could get the price down quite a bit more based on the fact that I had improvised the design multiple times
2x- Fork mounts (You could get cheap ones from amazon)
6x- 10' x 1" Sections of Pvc ( I used schedule 40 and recommend you do too)
8x- 1" Elbows
14x- 1" Tee shapes
6x- Elbows with side outlet (3 way elbow)
1x- 1" Cross shape (4 way)
6x- Nuts and Bolts (1.5"-2", #10) (Used to bolt in fork mounts)
2x- Velcro straps
2x- Screws or pins(To be able to remove top part of valet for access to the toolbox)
