Introduction: Foldaway Bike Racks

About: I like to tinker with just about anything, sometimes it works out in the end. Have fun looking at the projects, try tearing something open and let me know how it goes. cheers, -Joe
I always have people staying with me who have bikes. I needed a way store all of there bikes in my garage and still have space to parka car and build. This simple project lets you make cheap fold away bike racks.

Step 1: The Materials

1 1x4x48 wood
4 2" wood screws
4 Washers

Step 2: Measurements

I made one piece and used it as a template for the rest. You'll need to measure how ffar apart your studs are for the stop, Also make sure you have enough room between the wall and your handlebars.

Step 3: Make Your Template

Sketch it out on your wood and then cut it out with a scroll saw.

Put the hole in 1 3/4" in and 13/4" up so that they can fold away.

Step 4: Try It Out.

Screw the stop in to the studs.
Attach the arms with a washer on each end.

Try it out.
