Smile My front mounted bike rack - home made

My home-made bike rack. My little bro helped me...

Bought a normal bike rack for a normal receiver. Built 2 brackets, one for the rear and one for the front to provide more stability.

Very proud.



Front bracket:



Rear bracket:




View from underneath, the top hole is used when the front bracket is lowered.
