PVC bike rack!

We built a PVC bike rack to house our bikes. It came out outstanding and was super inexpensive to make. I believe it cost us about 30 dollars to make 2 bike racks that hold 3 and 4 bikes respectively. We followed the instructable here:

I modified it a bit to include spots for more than one bike. If you want our modifications, let me know and I will write them out!

Don't be a cheapskate like me. Spend $5 on some PVC glue and glue your bike rack pieces together. If you try to save the dollars and just fit the pieces together, you will have a cute little pile of PVC pipe sticks with in 2 or 3 weeks.

Parts cut out!

Front yard before nifty bike rack. Note bikes thrown haphazardly around yard, just begging to be stolen.
