DIY Bike Rack

After coveting those nice Hollywood racks for some time, but not wanting to spend the $500+, decided to make my own. Basically started with Harbor Freight hitch carrier, cut a couple of slots on the top frame for the wheels to sit in.  Reinforced back together with tubing and long eye hooks.  Used a piece of uni-struct for the upright and made so that it swings back out of the way to get the bike out.  Very sturdy, doesn't move at all when strapped down and tested with a 350 mile day trip at highway speeds.  Bonus with carrying space still available for camping gear, etc.  One downside is have to muscle it off the rack some, but not too bad.  Please let me know if you want some more detail on materials or the build.  Net cost, about $80.
