Chapparal bike rack loading

Anyone got a picture of how they loaded and fastened down bikes on the rack of a chapparal or similiar? I haven't yet tried and the rig is still in for warranty work.

If it's the fold up style,I never used it as a bike rack. With 450# of hauling cap,I used it for my aluminum tool box and small generator. Worked well for that.The rack has grooves for the tires and a post to tie to.I would think it would be pretty straight forward.

This isn't a good detail photo but this is how we've done it. We've only taken them two times. The silver pole is how we attach our flag pole when camping. Imagine that gone..bikes bunjied together and then also strapped to the black bar that the flag pole is zip tied to.
